What to see in Harstad

Harstad, an enchanting Norwegian town, isn't just a resting point for seafarers but a realm bursting with Nordic wonders.

A mere whisper away from the port, Trondenes Historical Centre stands as a testament to Harstad's deep-seated Viking roots and its significance in Norway's medieval times. As you step inside, you'll be transported back to a time when Norse chieftains ruled these lands and Viking longships cruised the fjords. Vivid dioramas, engaging exhibits and expertly guided tours offer insights into life during the Viking Age and the medieval period. Adjacent to the Historical Centre is the Trondenes Church. Built in the 13th century, it's the northernmost, and one of the oldest, medieval stone churches in Norway. With its thick stone walls and pointed steeples, this church has stood witness to centuries of history. Inside, the well-preserved frescoes and the ambience of age-old devotion offer a serene, reflective experience.

Nestled within a mountain in the heart of Harstad, Grottebadet is more than just a water park; it's an otherworldly retreat. From the port, a short walk will take you to this unique attraction. As you enter, the dim, ambient lighting and echoing sounds of cascading water give the impression of being inside a colossal cave. The water park has been ingeniously designed to blend with its rocky surroundings, creating a blend of nature and modern amenities. There's something for everyone here — exhilarating water slides for thrill-seekers, warm pools for those seeking relaxation and dedicated zones for children. The artificial waves, whirlpools and waterfalls enhance the cave-like ambience. After swimming and splashing, relax in one of the saunas or indulge in spa treatments that borrow from Nordic wellness traditions.

No cruise to Harstad would be complete without embracing its natural wonders, and there's no better way than hiking its trails. Depending on when you visit, you might witness the ethereal glow of the Midnight Sun or the mysterious dance of the Northern Lights. The town's proximity to mountains and fjords means there are a plethora of trails to choose from, each offering its own set of panoramic views. One of the popular trails is the path leading to the Keipen Lookout. While the hike is moderately challenging, the views from the top are unparalleled — a sweeping vista of Harstad, its surrounding archipelago and the vastness of the open sea. If you time your hike right during the summer months, the Midnight Sun's golden hues touching the calm sea waters is a spectacle you'll carry in your heart long after you leave Harstad.
