‘Aurora Borealis’ is the Latin name for the
northern lights-solar winds meeting the
atmosphere in a zone around the magnetic
north pole. It is only possible to see the
northern lights when it is dark and the sky
is clear, from August to April and they are
at their most intense from 10 in the evening
until midnight. The Harstad region is the
perfect place to experience the beautiful
and intense play of colours coming from the
northern lights.

ADVENTURES

Our five municipalities offer
memorable experiences. We call them
”unforgettable adventures”
© Ivan Arntzen
Harstad municipality - The Culture Capital of the North
Population: 23 423 - Areal: 364 km2 - www.harstad.kommune.no - [email protected]
Harstad is situated on Hinnøya, the largest
island in Norway. It is the third largest town
in northern Norway and an important centre of commerce for the whole region. The
paved market square in the town centre is
only a short walk from shops and cafes.
Bakgården, Ilios, and a Northern Norwegian
Beer Festival. The annual North Norwegian
Festival of Culture takes place the last week
in June, when the streets will be teeming
with people and there is music in pubs,
churches and concert halls.
Harstad is known for its high quality restau­
rants and cultural events throughout the
year. Several festivals are arranged, such as,
The coastal steamers meet at the town centre pier every morning and the express boat
heads north to Senja and Tromsø.
Harstad is generally sheltered from rain and
wind. Forests, mountains, fjords, islands and
miles of trails entice you to unforgettable
experiences in nature all year.

Skånland municipality
Population: 2.954 - Areal: 465 km2 - www.skanland.kommune.no - [email protected]
Skånland offers a spectacular nature and
a choice of activities and adventures on
land, at sea and on the mountains. Looking towards the midnight sun, the road to
Breistrand winds its way south via Evenskjer
and a host of exciting and beautiful small
villages, where it follows sheltered bays and
green meadows through an active coastal
cultural environment. You can taste tradi-
tional food based on local produce, or you
can take a boat trip by sail or engine.
There are many marked trails in a beautiful and captivating landscape, from inland
mountain landscape to coastal landscape.
Here are also rich natural resources with
opportunities for sea fishing from land or
boat and inland fishing in rivers and lakes.
The borough has a Sami population, and is
rich in Sami and Norwegian history, culture
and tradition. Lying as it does by the mainland at Tjeldsund, the Tjeldsund bridge is
truly the gate to Hinnøya and Lofoten.
But before you go there you have a lot to
look forward to here at Skånland.
Administrative centre: Evenskjer. Tovik/
Sandstrand in the middle and Grov to the
north.
Tjeldsund municipality
Population: 1.328 - Areal: 312 km2 - www.tjeldsund.kommune.no - [email protected]
Tjeldsund has been a vital traffic vein between the north and south throughout the
ages. The name of the strait and eventually the borough, is derived from the word
‘tjelle’, which means to camp for the night.
Archeological finds in the area bear witness
to settlements going back several thousand
years. The most well known is the Steinsvik
sword from the Viking Age. One part of the
8
www.destinationharstad.no
borough is situated on Hinnøya, another on
the mainland and yet another on Tjeldøya.
Towns are Kongsvik, Ramsund and Fjelldal.
The borough is host to the Ramsund Naval
Base and Norways Firefighting school in
Fjelldal. Culture is vibrant and there are
a wide range of voluntary organisations
businesses, focussing on innovation and enthusiasm, working hard to make Tjeldsund
a good place to live. Nature entices you to
outdoor activities and experiences, such as,
fishing on a summer’s night, playing along
the seashore, biking on Tjeldøya eight wonderful walks or hikes in Kongsvikdalen or
on Hinnøya, to mention but a few. Several
events and attractions can be visited in the
region. Trolldagan in Kongsvik takes place
at the end of August.
Bjarkøy municipality
Population: 476 - Areal: 75 km2 - www.bjarkoy.kommune.no - [email protected]
Bjarkøy is an island community consisting of
365 islands of varying sizes dotted around
the edge of Vågsfjord and out towards
the ocean in the north. We have everything here from high mountains, flat green
meadows and islands with white beaches
and shelered bays. An Eldorado for those
of you who like to spend time outdoors. We
have good fishing areas around the islands
and out at sea making it possible to earn a
living from fishing or just enjoy a day out in
a boat. There are many cultural monuments
Kvæfjord municipality
here from the Viking Age and the Iron Age.
There are marked trails where you can
enjoy the silence and view from the highest
peaks. Municipal centre: Nergårdshamn.
Population: 3.060 - Areal: 512,7 km2
www.kvafjord.kommune.no
[email protected]
Local tourist info: Rådhuset, Bygdeveien 26, 9475 Borkenes. tel +47 77 02 30 00 (Week days 08.00-15.30)
The borough of Kvæfjord with its magnificent landscape, has always been perfect for
agriculture and fishing. Finds on the island
of Kveøy point to having been settlements
from as long ago as 300 years BC. Many
items dating back to the Iron Age and Viking times have also been found. Kvæfjord
is known for its sweet and juicy strawberries
that are ripened slowly under the light of
the midnight sun, as well as the production
of high quality potatoes and vegetables.
Kvæfjord and Gullesfjord are excellent
fjords for fishing in and there are also many
fine lakes where one can fish for both trout
and char. The area can also offer many
berry and mushroom picking opportuni-
ties. The whole borough offers a rich and
varied bird and wildlife population including
harbour porpoises, seals and otters that can
often be seen playing at the water’s edge.
One can often see eagles flying high above
or sitting on a rock on the shore cleaning
their feathers. Kvæfjord is therefore a popular destination for birdwatchers and nature
photographers. By road the way to Lofoten
and Vesterålen goes through Kvæfjord
and from Harstad the route is shortened
considerably by taking the ferry from Refsnes to Flesnes. This trip offers a variety of
experiences in nature and a detour to the
beautiful island of Kveøya is recommended.
Busses with passengers from the coastal
steamer go daily from Harstad to Sortland
and this outing is the most popular along
the coast. Close to where Gullesfjord ends,
a roundabout gives you the choice of several directions. E10 east towards Tjeldsund
and Harstad and on to the E6. E10 west towards Lofoten, Rv 85 to Vesterålen and the
ferry connection to Kvæfjord and Harstad.
Fv 103 to Moelv and Gullholm. Kvæfjord is
an excellent walking area both summer and
winter. The Melåplateau is recommended
and can be reached from several places.
Gullesfjorbotn and Kvæfjordeidet with their
fantastic ski runs during winter. The grade
of difficulty varies from pensioner runs to
climbing challenges.

Mighty mountains and fjords awaken strong feelings.

Be inquisitive and let nature’s endless charm
seduce you!

Hiking - some tips
From around the 15th of June until the 1st
of October we can be pretty sure that the
mountain tops will be without snow. The
time before and after varies from year to
year. If one stays under 350m above sea
level and near the coast, the season will of
course last a little longer.
The weather changes quickly in the mountains and we recommend that you have
a suitable map and compass. Remember
warm wind and waterproof clothes in your
backpack. A hat and gloves might also be
a good idea if one is close to the top of the
mountain.
At Harstad tourist office you can buy hiking
maps and get good tips. We are also the
service office for the Norwegian Ramblers
Association. Here you can buy keys and
get information regarding their routes and
cabins.
