| Island hopping by cycle has long been a popular activity in Helgeland. A new feature this year is that we have set up several shorter cycle trips, designed as day trips to selected destinations in Helgeland. You may also combine these cycling adventures with other activities such as paddling, fishing or hiking.
The special feature of cycling in Helgeland is the combination of ferries and express boats which take you between the countless islands off the Helgeland Coast. This means that the cycling legs are not so long before you get a relaxing break. During the voyages between islands you can sit on the deck and feel the wind blowing through your hair as you take pleasure in the view of legendary mountains on the horizon!
While cycling in Helgeland you experience the nature and animal life at close range. If you’re lucky, you will see porpoises frolicking on the water’s edge while white-tailed eagles fly above you.
It’s light 24 hours a day during summer, and it’s a magical experience cycling in the peace and tranquillity that descends late at night or in the early hours of the morning.

You can hire cycles at the tourist information office in Sandnessjøen (phone +47 75 01 80 00) or Brønnøysund (same phone as in Sandnessjøen).
