  • The helgebostad bridge

    A good place to fish know if it is bad weather at sea. Or just because you wanna give it a try.
    Popular for many in the summer months.


Hitra is the largest island in the middle of Norway and consists of 2500 islands, islets and reefs. One of these is Helgebostad located on the north / west side of the island . The name Helgebostad comes from ancient “sacred residence “, possibly the Vikings gave the island its name. There are traces of the Vikings in the form of burial mounds on the island.

About  half of the island has the archipelago and sea as its nearest neighbor. Around the second half of the island extends a fjord. The island has varied and beautiful scenery with many walks both on Helgebostad and Hitra. Northern Europe’s densest deer tribe with about 6,000 animals can be found on Hitra. Rich bird life, waterbirds, seabirds and eagles. The sea has different fish species. Cod, haddock, coalfish, mackerel, herring, ling and halibut to mention a few. If you are lucky you can see whales, orcas and porpoises (one delfinart). In the archipelago outside  Helgebostad there are very good diving conditions with a rich biodiversity.

All activities that occur on or by the sea depends on weather condition.

  • Once again this year we were in Norwegen.Who has once visited the country goes there again and again.
    We are received very well for many years by Henki and Sølvi on Helgebostadt, they are almost like family to us.
    We like the small island very much, especially quietness. Here you can really switch off from everyday stress.
    The house is cozy and modern. A boat for fishing is available and we have always driven home with fish.
    For the next year Helgebostadt will certainly be back on our holiday list.

  • The first time we were on Helgebostad was in 1997. We had been to Norway 3 times before, but during this vacation Henki and Sølvi were so special that we just “had” come back year after year. We were welcomed so warmly, almost as friends. The two were always available. If we had questions or we needed help, Henki and Sølvi arranged it. The whole concept the house, environment and the people living on Helgebostad suited us so well, that we after the 6th year of holiday there on a row, we decided to move here. This was 12 years ago and we still enjoy it here.
