Just Torghatten with it's characteristic hole all the way through.


  • Torghatten some 10 kilometers outside of Brønnøysund, you have this mountain renowned for its distinctive hole piercing straight through the hillside. You really get the sense of man’s inferiority to nature when you walk through the 160 metre long, 35 metre high and 15-20 metre wide hole, created thousands of years ago by the sea’s erosion. The hill is 15 km from Brønnøysund.
  • Skarsåsen Fortress 5 km south-east of Brønnøysund is a German coastal fortress from the Second World War. Trenches and tunnels lead underground from the four large cannon sites. There are also many local defence sites and the remains of 11 barracks, as well as a cannon and searchlight. Today Skarsåsen is a beautiful area combining overview and insight into local and world-wide history.
