Sea Eagle safari
3 hour sea eagle safari starting at Kilboghamn and out into the archipelago. Including boat driver, life jacket and simple lunch. From NOK 850 per person.
When we arrive at the harbor in Kilboghamn approx. 30 min before departure, we are well received by the hosts. We are surrounded by excited guests from all parts of Norway and in all age groups. Guests are well taken care of and everyone gets the necessary clothing. We are checked that we all wear warm clothes and are given life jackets, gloves and goggles, in addition it is also possible to borrow wool socks and footwear. The guide states that several photo stops will be made on the trip and recommends everyone to bring photo equipment. We have with us a mobile phone with a good camera that we hope to be able to take the ultimate eagle picture with. The guide has informed us that we will most likely get close to the sea eagles. He has a bucket of herring lurking for him to throw out to the eagles.
Guided hike to Bertelberget
Hear the story and see the place the blacksmith Bertel Olsen found and extracted silvery lead shine already at the end of the 17th century. 4 hour guided hike and storytelling. From 795, – pr. person.
We park at the power plant at Anleggshammeren and go up the road to where we take off towards Bertelberget. The road is quite flat, and the path further goes up and down a bit, but no worse than it is easy to follow. It is a very good path to begin with, but you must always turn right when the path splits, even if it looks steepest, otherwise you risk ending up in the wrong place. A small cairn is located on a peak, just as it tells us that we are on the right path. The trip is in relatively easy terrain, and we will use approx. 4 hours in total. Up by the old mine, we grab a bite to eat, before returning.

Winter taste of Helgeland!
The smoke seeps out through the top of the lavvo. From inside, the rune boom and the Sami’s traditional song – the yoik – can be heard. The aroma of traditional food seeps out and mixes with the campfire smoke. The snow creaks loudly as you move towards the opening. On this trip you will see the clear winter light, taste traditional Sami food, go sledding and enjoy many of the local dishes Helgeland has to offer – even inside a cave!

The cold bites in the cheeks. The snow makes a loud noise as the snowshoes are lowered into it. Constellation after constellation appears above you, and the silence sounds deafening.

The guide pulls up the coffee and something good to bite into, and the excitement increases as time approaches as the northern lights crackle across the sky.

Glacier walk on Svartisen
Ice. Double up with ice. Is it possible? Yes, this summer it is. I am on a glacier change with the family who have signed us up for a trip with ExploRana. I’m 10 years old and then I’m finally allowed. I have masturbated on mom and dad if I get as much ice cream as I want during the holidays. I could hardly have had a better response to the indictment. At Svartiskiosken we take a little ice break. And then we laugh a little that we eat ice cream before we go on an ice trip.

3 day survival trip
Darkness descends and I am alone in the woods. I have lost the map and the compass, and the path I followed has ended in nothing. I’m hungry too, because the food I had with me has long since been eaten up. It actually looks like I have to spend the night here in the woods, and maybe find where I’m going tomorrow. Had I thought about it, I would not have turned off the path I followed….
