Giving you memorable adventures!

Natural Helgeland was founded in 2015 – and since then much has happened. We met as students at Nesna University College; on one of our many excursions we discussed how we might share joyous outdoor adventures in magnificent Helgeland with other people. This was the spark that led to the creation of our company, Naturlige Helgeland.

Today we offer a wide array of adventures, ranging from day excursions to extended trips. We tailor our adventures to your group, including food and accommodation, transport services, activities and entertainment. We are also co-owners of Mosjøen’s via ferrata and zip-line, and in charge of the daily operations of both.

We are passionate about magnificent Helgeland, and are eager to share the best of our beautiful region with you. With more than two decades’ experience in tourism and outdoor adventures, we believe we have a versatility and breadth of knowledge that benefits each of customers. Our passion and our knowledge is our strength, and our genuine interest in each fellow traveller makes us responsive. This, no doubt, is why our guests tell us they “feel seen” and well looked after.

Our strong desire to convey our local heritage and culture is sure to enhance your experience. And we know this area like the back of our hand.

We look forward to tailoring an adventures programme for your group. You are in good hands and are sure to get the most out of time and money.

We look forward to working with you, to create your memorable adventures!

In Mosjøen, we can help you with accommodation, dining and transportation, as well as with great outdoor adventures! Let us offer you a complete, reasonably-priced package.

The town of Mosjøen is situated in the heart of Helgeland, near scenic mountains and fjords that are perfect for a wide range of adventures. We recommend staying several days in friendly Mosjøen. Its beautiful town centre is the historic Sjøgata street; Mosjøen has one of the few listed city parks in Norway; and the Vefsna river is renowned for its salmon fishing! Few other places in the world place you as close to so many great adventures. In fact, within the city limits you can climb the via ferrata and get an adrenaline kick speeding down the zip-line. And the entire family is welcome to join our cave tour. Or how about a family-friendly kayak ride along the historic wooden houses of Sjøgata?

We would be happy to tailor a complete package or a special event for your group. To find out more, please email us at post@naturligehelgeland.no, or call us directly:
