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.
