Sandnessjoen is the gateway to the Helgeland Coast, said to be one of the most beautiful shorelines in the world. Rising to create a dramatic landscape, the iconic Seven Sisters mountain range peeks over the shipping channel; carved from Ice Age glaciers, the tallest of the sibling summits reaches a towering 3,517 feet. Nearby, in the courtyard at Alstahaugtunet, visitors will find the medieval Alstahaug Church and the Petter Dass Museum, with 18th-century buildings and exhibits that focus on the establishment's namesake poet. In the city center, visit the shop of a glass artist for hand-forged trinkets or dine at a cafe that proudly dishes up locally sourced food before joining in on a walking tour that includes a stop at the pier to buy fresh fish.
