Helgeland island jumping

The Helgeland coast in Northern Norway offers spectacular scenery, with towering peaks, stunning ocean vistas and sheltered bays.
There are thousands of islands in all shapes - large and small, flat and hilly. You drive along fjords, over bridges, and at the foot of majestic mountains.
It won't be the hills that take your breath away, but the sights and impressions!

Every day you'll have the spectacular views of  famous Norwegian landmarks: The Seven Sisters mounatin range, The Mount Dønnamannen and Torghatten.
You also get to visit the island of Vega, and the island of Lovund, which is known for its large colony of puffins. Helgeland is a unique, open landscape of sea and land, which also reflects the way fishermen and farmers have lived during the past 1500 years, maintained as a vibrant community.

The landscape along the coast of Helgeland is easy to ride, with relatively low traffic on the main roads. Each day provides opportunities of making you own daytrips by inserting your own choice of detours.

Day 3 - Tuesday : Biking, and island jumping from Brønnøysund to Herøy, 60 km.
This is a long day trip, but relatively easy biking on paved roads. You make 3 ferry crossings along the way. It is also possible to make part of the trip by local bus.

Day 4 - Wednesday: Biking on the island Herøy and island hopping to Dønna, min. 28 km.
At Dønna you can study the map, and extend your trip with nice detours across the island.
We recommend a trip north, to Dønnesfjellet and the restaurant "Dønnesfjellstua" 127 m above sea level. Here you can enjoy great views of the islands and, further north where you are going to ride the coming days. Ferry from Bjørn Sandnessjøen.
Accommodation in Sandnessjøen.

Day 5 - Thursday: Biking in Sandnessjøen Area + boat to the island Lovund.
We recommend a trip back to Alstadhaug and Petter Dass Museum, which is 40 km roundtrip.
Local Express in the afternoon, to the island Lovund.
Dinner and accommodation in Lovund.

Since the islands of Lovund and Træna only a few km of roads, and the boat that goes there only takes a few bikes (no reservations), we recommend that you return the bikes at Sandnessjøen, before taking the Expressboat to Lovund.

Day 6 - Friday: Excursion to the island Træna, or a day off at Lovund.
We recommend a day trip to Træna, one of Norway's smallest municipality with 470 residents. If you bring your bike, you have a few km of roads to ride on. At Træna you can explore the famous rock formations, Trænstaven and Kirkhelleren, which rises vertically from the sea. The Petter Dass chapel is also worth a visit.
