Our landscapes are crisp, clean and wild. Inviting to be on the go. Or to just spend time – happiness is a place.

The mountains rise from deep fjords, holding Svartisen glacier back. Or directly from the open sea, far west. The arcipelago is filled with islands, waiting to be explored.

In Rødøy you will find beautiful hikes everywhere. Steap or easier. You can climb famous Hestmannen at Storselsøy, or the magnificent peaks on the mainland, such as Telnestinden, Blokktinden or Kvalhovudet. In each local community you will find marked trails for all levels.
