Punctual sea bird: 14 April is Lundkommardagen – "Puffin Arrival Day"

In the seas west of Lovund, puffins are gathering to flirt with each other after a hard autumn and winter. Will they arrive at Lovund on the right day?

About Lundkommardagen

For as long as they can remember, the people of Lovund have been saying "here come the puffins" on 14 April. They say the same thing on the Faroe Islands – and on the coast of Finnmark. That day is also considered to be the first day of summer – and the day the bears leave their dens in the wilds of northern Sweden.

The Lovund puffins

Puffins leave the island of Lovund when the breeding season finishes towards the end of August. Then they head out into their true element – the North Sea and the waters around Norway. Out there, they live without setting foot on solid ground through a hard autumn and winter, constantly searching for food. The puffins, which have gathered in large colonies during the breeding season, now disperse across the vast ocean, and are extremely difficult to observe. They lose their beautiful coloured plumage – and while they are moulting, they are barely able to fly.

Making families

When the light returns in January/February, this reminds the birds that they must do their duty – make a family. The birds, which are now resplendent in their new colours and have grown back the distinctive horny plates on their bills, start returning to their breeding grounds. At the end of February, the fishermen off the islands of Træna are able to report the first puffin sightings, and gradually the birds get closer and closer to their destination: Lovund. From the beginning of April, you can often see them gathering in the areas close to the Lovund colony – the mouths of the fjords and the seas off the Helgeland coast.


In the seas west of Lovund, the puffins gather. The first birds tend to arrive in the early afternoon and gradually more and more puffins appear. We can only guess at what flirtation is going on in the flock, when the birds are gathered in large "floes", drifting about on the sea. Every now and then the birds will take off and fly in their characteristic figure of eight formations above the surface of the sea, before settling down again. Slowly, the flocks get nearer and nearer, and eventually we can just see them over the horizon.


And now the excitement starts to rise – will they get to Lundeura? More often than not though, the birds are more preoccupied with showing off to each other than finding their little island, and the displays of these flocks are a fantastic natural phenomenon. Then all of a sudden, they decide that they can't wait any longer. In their hundreds, then in their thousands, the flocks approach, gather together, make their inspections, fly in and out, and finally the first birds show the others the way home. "Here come the puffins"!

Nordland Teater (Theater)

The highlight of the year is the annual winter festival every February – a fun filled festival with something for everyone. The festival stretches over seven days and is a popular event in the dark winter months.

The theatre opened its doors in 2005 and is well worth a visit.

The Dønna.man 858masl.

The Dønna-man is widely known from the tales of the Helgeland mountains, where he was supposed to babysit The Seven Sisters and Lekamøya. As the terrible babysitter he was he fell asleep and is still sleeping to this day on his back with his hands on his chest and the face towards the skies.

The famous mountain is a popular attraction for those who wants a challenge in the mountain. Many compare The Dønna-man to The Seven Sisters due to the challenging parts of the mountain hike, but which is to prefer varies from one to another.

The mountain lies in the southern part of the municipality Dønna outside Sandnessjøen in the Coast of Helgeland. There are two ways to get to the mountain. One is to take the ferry from Sandnessjøen over to Dønna (Bjørn) before a 20-minute drive takes you to the beautiful and local beach, Breivika, on the west side of Dønna. The other way is to drive 20 minutes to Søvik and onboard the ferry from Søvik to the archipelago Herøy, from Herøy Ferrystop you drive 15 minutes before you arrive the beginning of the path to Hagen and the climb up the Dønna-man.
Both paths are marked well, and merge together at Hagen. You should be careful to walk this mountain, especially if it is raining. As always you walk on your own risk, but you should be warned about the slippery and lose rocks on steep parts of this hike. This is not a mountain for beginners.

Torghatten mountain (258 m high (846 ft)) is on the island of Torget in the south-west of Brønnøy municipality. It is famous for its characteristic hole that goes right through the mountain.

This hole, which is 160 metres long (525 ft), 35 metres high (115 ft) and 20 metres wide (66 ft), was created during the Ice Age. Ice and water gradually eroded away the loose rock, while the harder rock around the top of the mountain remained. The result was a hole the size of a grand cathedral.

According to legend, Torghatten was formed when Hestmannen the troll was disappointed in love and fired an arrow at Lekamøya, who was running away from him. The King of Sømna mountain saw this and threw his hat in front of the arrow – the arrow pierced the hat and formed the hole. Then the sun rose, and turned them all to stone.

The most popular way up to the hole is via the east side. The walk follows a well-maintained trail and takes about 30 minutes at a casual pace. The oldest steps on the path date back to the 1870s. Further up the hillside, the path enters a canyon with steep walls. The best view into the hole is from the top of the scree. If we turn to the north, we can see Brønnøysund and the Seven Sisters mountains in the distance. The view is incredible, a real opportunity to see the Helgeland coast and its hundreds of tiny islands at their most beautiful. The view alone makes it worth hiking up to the hole.

Torghatten is easy to get to from Brønnøysund, via the Brønnøysund bridge and along County Road 54. Brønnøysund also has its own airport, is a port of call for Hurtigruten boats and is on the Coastal Route (FV17).

Remember to wear sturdy shoes and to take your camera.

Welcome to Stekvasselv! This mountain farm is situated by Nord-Røssvatnet lake, with the scenic Okstindan range and Okstindbreen glacier in the background. It is located in Hemnes municipality in Helgeland, which is roughly the geographical centre of Norway. The entire area is magnificent, with varied terrain that offers a wealth of easy as well as challenging hiking trails. The area is also known for excellent fishing and hunting.

At Stekvasselv, two holiday houses are available for rent, as well as rooms in the main house. The newest house, built in 1985, has four bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, refrigerator, laundry room, two bathrooms and a sauna. The house is fully equipped with everything needed for self-catering.

Stekvasselv also offers boat and canoe rental, and food service on request.

Your hosts
Kari and Håkon Økland have been running Stekvasselv Farm since they purchased it in 1985. Up until a decade ago, they had an active dairy production.

They wish to let visitors enjoy the wilderness adventures that they themselves treasure. The magnificent wilderness near Nord-Røssvatnet beckons!

There are many beaches around Røssvatnet where it is possible to take a boat out or even go swimming. Boats and canoes can be rented at Stekvasselv gård. Fishing licences can be bought at Statsskog. The area around Røssvatnet is also perfect for hiking during the summer as well as the winter. The area is also popular in the autumn for berry picking and hunting.

The regional airports of Mo i Rana and Mosjøen have several daily departures to Bodø and Trondheim. The closest station on the Nordlandsbanen railway is Bjerka. On weekdays during the school year, there is a bus service to Nord-Røssvatnet from Mo i Rana. The hosts can arrange to pick you up in Korgen or Bjerka. If you are driving highway E6 from farther north, then in Korgen take a turn towards Bleikvassli, and then head for Røssvatnet. If you are arriving by car from the south, we recommend you to take the scenic Wilderness Road (Villmarksveien). Take the turn towards Fiplingdal and Hattfjelldal, just north of Majavatn.

Marmorslottet – a geological fairy-tale

Just north of Mo i Rana you will discover Marmorslottet (The Marble Castle), a castle that has been naturally formed over a period of thousands of years.

Caves and the potholes

The marble castle has emerged where loose rock masses such as lime, have been washed out in the river for thousands of years. Over the years, the water has formed several caves, potholes and formations in the rock - and made the area a fairytale landscape. If you are bold enough, you can sit down on a "stone horse",  that goes over the river, and have the river shower right below you.

Nice rock formations

The best time to visit the marble castle is in the fall when the water level is not so high. At this time, you can take the time to walk down the potholes, walk through a pot and over the river. You also eventually come to a cave and will see incredibly nice rock formations. Here you walk between the rocks on flat marble / stone surfaces with pins under which the river has dug out.

How to get here

Drive E6 north past Mo i Rana (8km) to Røssvoll. Turn left in the direction of Melfjordbotn. After approx. 5 km again you turn left again, still in the direction of Melfjordbotn. Drive along the northern edge of Langvatn in the direction of Melfjord past Ravnåga. Turn off towards the Fisktjønna. From the parking lot in Fisktjønna, there is a nice path that goes to the Marble Castle.

Time use: About 25 minutes from the motorway.

Remember good shoes and camera.


The DNT cabin Rabothytta is dramatically situated at 1200 metres altitude, on the very edge of the Okstindbreen glacier. The cabin enjoys a stunning view of the glacier, as well as the Okstindan mountain range and its ruling summit Oksskolten, the highest mountain in Northern Norway.

A mountain trail network

Rabothytta draws visitors for its architecture as well as the beauty of the surrounding wilderness. For hikers, it fills a “gap” between the older cabins Kjendsvasshytta and Gråfjellhytta.

Rabothytta was completed in mid-August 2014, and the Hemnes chapter of the Norwegian Trekking Association can now offer more extensive accommodation along with a great trail network to hikers yearning to explore Nordland’s majestic Okstindan range. The cabin is self-service (unstaffed) and accommodates 30 overnight guests.

Perfectly situated

Rabothytta is perfectly situated for winter as well as summer visitors. From the closest road it can be reached in about 1.5 hours in the summer, passing through beautiful mountain terrain. In the winter, cross-country skiers should allow about three hours for the trip up to the cabin.

Honouring Charles Rabot

The cabin is named in honour of Charles Rabot, a French glaciologist, ethnographer and explorer who was passionate about the Arctic landscape and its peoples. Rabot was particularly fond of Helgeland, and especially the Okstindan mountains. Rabothytta cabin has a striking design, robust and simple, by architects Jarmund/Vigsnæs. Their plans for the cabin are currently honoured by a display in La Galerie d’Architecture in Paris.

Myken bed and breakfast (closed season 2020)

Here we are talking about unique accommodation! Myken B&B is located in a closed school, at the very end of the sea at Helgeland. Here they offer accommodation and delicious simple homemade food such as delicious soups, sandwiches and mussels.

If you want accommodation, you have several options. Both the teacher's room, the chemistry lab and the school kitchen have been converted into comfortable double rooms. You share bathrooms with the other overnight guests.

If you are looking for a unique experience, the library is the place: Indoors, in the old school on the car-free island, you will find the campsite. Here you can rent a small, vintage caravan that has been converted into comfortable sleeping accommodation for two. In the campsite's common area you can relax in the deck chair under the palm trees.

8181 Myken

The distance to the nearest mainland is almost 32 km. The exact position for Myken lighthouse is 66 ° 45′52 ″ N, 12 ° 28′37 ″ E. The easiest way to Myken is by boat from Tonnes or Vågaholmen. From Bodø or Sandnessjøen you can take the Nordlandsexpressen (express boat) to Tonnes, where you can change to the boat serving the Red Island route to Myken. It is also possible to take the train to Mo i Rana, and bus/car from there to Tonnes. If you come by car from the south, take the E6 to Mo i Rana, before taking off towards the sea gap. For those coming by car from the north, Vågaholmen is often the most practical alternative. Rødøyruta also stops at Vågaholmen. Free parking is available at Tonnes. There is no car traffic on Myken. The place has for hundreds of years been the home of a few people, never more than 150. The low, small hilly islands and islets have given shelter to the storms and grazed some cows and sheep.

The Helgeland-steps

The spectacular Helgeland-steps are located on Øyfjellet, the beautiful town mountain of Mosjøen. To this date it consists of over 1800 steps.

The mountain itself rises 818 meters above sea-level and the end result is that the steps will go all the way to the top. With a total of 2500 steps it will most likely be the longest one in Norway.

The steps are made by the Sherpa people from Nepal and are ranked on the top-5-list of the best mountain steps in the entire country.

Each step is two meters wide which gives the possibility of three people walking side-by-side. Resting areas are placed along the way, all of them blending perfectly into the nature around.

On July 6th 2019 the Queen of Norway was here to mark the opening of the steps, which was also nationally covered on television.

You’ll find the Helgeland-steps in beautiful surroundings, about 1 km from the town center of Mosjøen, on the other side of the Salmon river Vefsna.

Most of the salmon that is possible to catch here weight approximately 5 to 10 kilos, while the trout usually weight approximately 2 to 10 kilos. The river is perfect using normal fishing rod and also to try fly fishing.

The Okstindan area with Northern Norway's largest mountain on 1916 m.a.s.l. is a popular area for hiking. The hut Rabothytta, that lies beautifully close to the glacier is absolutely worth a visit.

Helgelandstrappa (Helgeland-steps)

The spectacular Helgeland-steps are located on Øyfjellet, the beautiful town mountain of Mosjøen. To this date it consists of about 1800 steps.

The mountain itself rises 818 meters above sea-level and the end result is that the steps will go all the way to the top. With a total of 2500 steps it will most likely be the longest one in Norway.

The Helgeland-steps are made by the Sherpa people from Nepal and are ranked on the top-5-list of the best mountain steps in the entire country.

Each step is two meters wide which gives the possibility of three people walking side-by-side. Resting areas are placed along the way, all of them blending perfectly into the nature around.

On July 6th 2019 the Queen of Norway was here to mark the opening of the steps, which was also nationally covered on television.

You’ll find the Helgeland-steps in beautiful surroundings, about 1 km from the town center of Mosjøen, on the other side of the Salmon river Vefsna.

Important information: fishing in the Vefsna river

Hattfjelldal offers great freshwater fishing, and the trout and char are of excellent quality. Below are a few suggestions; for additional tips check out our Helgeland trail map. Eager anglers will be pleased to know that they can once again fish the renowned salmon river Vefsna, all the river up to Fellingforsen falls. The total catch allowed for the river is 600 male salmon. The salmon season is July and August, and a fishing license is of course required.

Important information (!)

Special fishing rules apply to the river between Laksfors and Fellingforsen falls. You may only keep male salmon shorter than 65 cm – all other salmon must be released unharmed. On this particular stretch of river, the start of the season is delayed until 1 August, to allow migration of smaller salmon.

Fishing from bridges is prohibited, and it is forbidden to fish in the red-marked conservation zones near the salmon stairs.

We ask all anglers to act responsibly, as the salmon population in the re-opened Vefsna river is very vulnerable. As recovery continues in the years ahead, fishing will be allowed along additional stretches of the river. We fully expect the Vefsna to reclaim its position as one of Norway’s premier salmon rivers – with catches greater than those of the famous Alta and Namsen rivers.

Authorities will be monitoring fishing activities along the entire river.


Everyone is required to disinfect their fishing gear before using it in the Vefsna river. This is to prevent a reoccurrence of the parasite that decimated the river’s salmon population. Disinfection of fishing gear is available is free of charge at VeFis disinfection stations in Mosjøen and at Trofors. Absolutely all fishing gear, including nets, waders, rain boots and boats that have been used in other rivers this season, must be disinfected before being used in the Vefsna river.

Any violation of this disinfection requirement is punishable by expulsion from the river and heavy fines.

Fishermen are required to report their catch.

Fishing licenses and catch reports

The Vefsna river is divided into different zones, and separate licenses are required for each stretch of river. These fishing licenses are sold online at www.inatur.no. By midnight every fisherman must report their catch, including data on released fish, on the website www.inatur.no. NB. Also fishing that does not result in a catch must be reported by midnight. Catch information is made publicly available.

Please note that all fishermen must also have a valid national fishing license for salmon, sea trout and sea trout. Fishermen must present receipt on request to the wildlife authorities patrolling the river.

For additional information about fishing in the Vefsna river, please visit https://lakseelver.no/nb/elver/vefsna.


Lurøy farm - a Renaissance garden under the polar circle

At Lurøy lies the Renaissance garden at the polar circle. Perhaps the world's northernmost of its kind. Here it has been laid sheltered and undisturbed at the foot of the Lurøyfjellet since it was built around 1740. Here it is possible to rent a room and even a whole house.

The first Renaissance gardens were built in Italy as early as the beginning of the 1400s. What featured these gardens was the regular and symmetrical form, fountains and canals. There is reason to believe that in Norway there were less prickly gardens than in southern Europe. At Lurøy there are no fountains or magnificent dimensions, but the plant with plantations in parties is similar. The perennials is planted on geometric like beds, lined with grass and is a symmetrical flat decoration that is also axially aligned with the main building. It took a few years before the Renaissance had found its way north to Norway, after which also came the baroque garden and the landscape garden and displaced most of the Renaissance gardens. Today there are few Renaissance gardens in Norway that are held in their original form.

The generations have come and gone, and around 1890 the garden at Lurøy also established a landscape garden in English style. This style is characterized by rolling trails, planting of hardwoods and water. At Lurøy an artificial dam was built in the north of the garden, and thermophilic woods were planted as oak and bloodbuck.

Please visit our garden. You can walk freely on your own and let peace and tranquility lower while you let the scent of alba roses and cormorants wedge your nose. If you would like a tour, please contact in advance.
Lurøygården is currently run as an active farm. Here we have milk production in new and modern farms, and on the farm you will find the horses Tornado and Maja, the dog Milla and the farm cat Fibi. We are situated at the foot of Lurøyfjellet (689 m above sea level) and in close proximity to the sea with nice beaches and good opportunities for kayaking and sea life.

We offer tours and dining in the old house for groups up to 30 people. Please contact us for a special offer. The premises are suitable for small companies and smaller meetings. It can be both lunch and three-course dinner that we adapt to your needs and wishes. We use as far as possible local products and beef and some milk products from our own production. In Lurøygården we emphasize tradition and quality, and wish to serve homemade, rustic traditional fare. In the backyard we have room for small groups of 10-12 people. Here we would like to serve you pizza directly from the stone oven or fingerfood.

The farmyard is open during the summer and on occasional dates otherwise in the year. Here we serve home-baked cakes, lefser and gomme from Lurøy as well as simple lunch dishes. Opening hours are announced on Facebook "Lurøygården" and on the website Lurøygården.no

They also offer accommodation in historical surroundings. In the 2nd and 3rd floor of the old house they have 9 beds available. The rooms share 2 bathrooms and the price includes homemade breakfast.

They also have an entire house for rent with 12 beds. Here it is self-catering. It is divided into 5 bedrooms, 4 double rooms and a family room with 4 beds. 2 bathrooms / toilets, large well equipped kitchen and large living room. Terrace with hot tub that can be fired on order. Otherwise, washing machine / dryer, internet, TV and meeting room equipment. Great for groups or larger families.
