Rising 846 feet straight up from the sea at Brønnøysundet, Torghatten is quite the sight. For starters, there is a hole in the middle of this mountain.

This iconic landmark has been called ‘Nature's Cathedral’, due to the height of the hole’s ceiling, which stands at 115 feet.

Enjoy a scenic bus ride to this famous mountain and join the Expedition Team on a hike. Some may choose to climb all the way up to the hole itself. This is a steep climb on rocky and uneven ground and requires good physical fitness. At the hole, you will be rewarded by a spectacular view. The Helgeland coast is dotted with hundreds of small islands, an impressive sight from high above.
