Harstad | Troms | Vesterålen

Harstad was the last “big place” we visited before leaving the Vesterålen islands and travelling east to Sweden again...

The city of Harstad enjoys a scenic and strategic location on Norway’s largest island Hinnøya, serving as the gateway to Vesterålen and Lofoten. Harstad are also in close proximity to Narvik in the east, Tromsø in the north, and Bodø in the south.

Harstad is a great starting point if you want to explore the northernmost inhabited archipelago in the world. Go island hopping with bike and ferry, or journey aboard a RIB and uncover kilometres upon kilometres of rugged mountain peaks, hidden tranquil coves, and fine white beaches.
