About us

Møte Hi North-teamet!

We give you moments to remember!

The company was started in 2015 based of the wish to share the joy of hiking and enjoying our beautiful nature and country. The development of the company went quickly, and we felt we grew out of our original concept, Naturlige Helgeland, and wanted to deliver the full package of moments to remember.

Today, we are a tour operator that delivers many services – anything from activities and adventures to complete packages and round-trips full of delicious food, spectacular sights, and unforgettable moments. We tailor arrangements for businesses and groups, and with our long experience and knowledge, we give you the ultimate experience of Helgeland. We have been a part of the travel and tourism development since the beginning, and is part-owners of via ferrata and zipline, as well as part of new projects like Nord Gondol and Destination Kjemsås.

With a beating heart for Helgeland, we would like to share this with you. With over 30 years’ experience from tourism and travel, and a passion for our guests, we make it easy safe and fun to plan and execute your travels. Together with our local knowledge, high quality partners, history, and traditions, we deliver moments and memories that stay with you for life. If you let us handle your next corporate visit, you will be in safe hands and save time and money.

By changing our name to Hi North, we mark the start of our international focus and many more exiting packages and roundtrips. We hope you would like to discover the beautiful north together with us and create #momentstoremember!

We can’t wait to meet you!
