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.

The bird guardians
Every April, the bird guardians travel to Lånan to prepare nests for the eider ducks. Throughout May and June, Lånan hosts around 700 birds, and the bird guardians protect them from danger during the nesting season. In return, the birds return to Lånan year after year, giving the guardians the highly-prized eider down, and eggs.
Once the eider ducks with fledglings have left the nests, the bird guardians harvest the down. It is then carefully cleaned by hand. This amazing down is used for exclusive eiderdown comforters and mittens.

During the summer, Visit Vega offer boat trips to Lånan twice a week, departing from Nes at 2:30pm on every Tuesday and Friday.

RABOTHYTTA – THE MOST IMPRESSIVE DNT CABIN IN NORWAY
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.
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.
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?
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.
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"!
