Northern Norway Nordland HERØY (NORDLAND)

The islands of Herøy

  • Silvalveien 1, Herøy
  • 75018000 press 2 (tourist information)
  •  /  km From You
Overview

Herøy is a beautiful archipelago, and the number of islands and islets exceeds its population. The 1800 people here reside on the largest islands, which are linked by bridges. The archipelago offers outstanding outdoor adventures.

Activities
For cyclists, Herøy is ideal for “island hopping” – and the waters are a paradise for kayakers. You will find excellent kayaking facilities at Sandvær and Brasøy on the island of Husvær. If you prefer to explore on two wheels, Herøy has a network of lightly-trafficked roads, white sandy beaches, rich birdlife and terrific views of the Seven Sisters mountains on the mainland. Herøy also offers many great walks and even though every peak is under 100 metres, you can enjoy magnificent views of the Helgeland coast.

RIB Safari
Seløy Kystferie offers RIB sea-rafting tours of the archipelago – and they guarantee you will see sea-eagles! Their experienced guides will tell you about the islands’ birds and other wildlife, and share stories that highlight the heritage of the islanders and local fishermen.

Also Helgeland Opplevelser, based in Mosjøen, offers sea eagle safaris and deep-sea fishing trips on their new RIB boat.

Sights and attractions
Exhibitions on local fishery history at Augustbrygga wharf highlight the islanders’ heritage and the day-to-day lives of past generations. Herøy Bygdesamling, a rural museum, offers guided tours of its old houses and historical artefacts.

Near the museum lies Herøy church, often referred to as Helgeland cathedral. This Romanesque church, built of soapstone in the 12th century, has numerous features in common with the mediaeval churches at Dønnes and Alstahaug. Petter Dass, Northern Norway’s celebrated 17th-century poet-priest, was born in Herøy and also served as priest there.

Dining and lodging
In Herøy you can stay in charming fishermen’s cabins (rorbu), holiday apartments or houses, or opt for seafront lodgings in the fishing village. Some of Herøy’s restaurants take pride in serving traditional local fare. For more information on dining and accommodation, please visit visithelgeland.com/bo.

How to get here
From the ferry quay at Søvik in Alstahaug, which is a 20-minute drive from Sandnessjøen town centre, take the ferry to Flostad in Herøy. A bridge connects Herøy to the neighbouring island of Dønna, which is also worth a visit. You can take the return ferry to Sandnessjøen from Dønna.
