If you take the Hurtigruten ship from Kirkenes back South to Bergen, you will doubtless be offered a trip to the "UNESCO World Heritage site on the island of Vega in the archipeligo. The excursion takes you off the Hurtigruten ship and puts you on a small boat which takes you through endless low skerries for over an hour to... More

Explore the island by bike Take a boat trip and visit Hav hotellet for an execellent meal. Be prepared for cold weather in the summer. Tourist information at Gladstad will help you out or ask the locals. To get there ferry from Horn outside Brønnøysund approx 1 hour or hurtigbåt from centre of Brønnøysund

We were there at the end of August on an excursion from Sandnesjoen. We came there by Hurtigruten ship. The trip in the boat to Nes on Vega was beautiful. The small museum on the eider ducks and their relation with the people was very interesting. Local Kari was very informative. We loved the tour. Spend a couple of hours... More
