Torghatten is one of Norway’s most iconic tourist attractions, known for its spectacular hole through the mountain. People feel small as they wander through the cathedral like hole, with a length of 160 m, height of 35 m and width of 15-20 m. The mountain, like many along the Helgeland Coast, is the subject of myths and legends and it is a place which visitor simply must go when they come to Brønnøysund. The bus tour starts with a sightseeing through town, before crossing the Brønnøysund Bridge and continuing to the foot of Torghatten. We follow a natural path up the mountain, and after around 30 minutes we reach the entrance. From here, we can enjoy the fantastic view and walk through the hole itself before following the same path down again.
