Did you know that birdwatching is one of the hobbies that has most participants in the world? Just soccer is bigger.
Birdwatching is a popular hobby that stimulates body, mind and soul. Due to the fact that the island Helgøy has no permanent inhabitants and is surrounded by the sea gives you an unique opportunity to get close to the birds living around here.
Pack your bag with coffee and snacks, binoculars and camera and go on a walk on the island. Which birds can you meet? You can definitely meet the majestic sea eagle, but also cormorant, common eider, razorbill, puffin, European storm petrel, and many others.
Helgøy offers you a perfect combination of experiences you can only have in Northern Norway. In addition to our rich birdlife you may see whales hunting and playing close to the island. You can see birds throughout all 4 seasons on warm summer evenings under the midnight sun or on stormy and colourful autumn days. Icy and clear winter days with northern lights dancing over your head that make the sky coming alive will take your birdwatching experience to a new level. Helgøy has always been attractive for birdwatching. And close by you find Nord-Fugløya, which is one of the most famous bird islands and protected nature reservations, in Norway.
It is easy and safe to get to Helgøy, but in the same way it is exotic and untouched. Astonishing and varying nature will give your holiday an individual touch. On Helgøy you have a whole island to yourself and you are offered comfortable modern facilities that complete your experience.
A Place to find Peace.
