Overview
More
Harstad is situated at the heart of Northern Norway, at the gate to the Vesteralen and Lofoten islands. This is a region with unforgettable adventures in nature, accessible and mighty mountain landscapes, fantastic views and a plentiful archipelago. This is the place to find a quiet spot for yourself, drink clean water from trickling rivers or fish in mountain lakes or at sea. Harstad lies at the centre of an exciting region: Kvaefjord is known for its strawberries and Nupen, elected to the most romantic place in Norway to see the midnight sun. Bjarkoy, the Viking seat of Tore Hund, can boast a formidable archipelago, a bird rock and many white-tailed eagles. The boroughs adjacent to the airport, Tjeldsund and Skanland, are known for their fantastic mountain walks, white sandy beaches and beautiful fjords. Skanland even has its own ‘ice swimming beach’. You will also find old sami settlements here and a cultural landscape bearing witness of settlements throughout thousands of years. Visit us at the tourist office for further information. We have lots of suggestions for hiking, activities, attractions and sights.

http://wikitravel.org/en/Harstad Beaming is the word to describe Harstad. Most inhabitants are outdoor persons with comparatively good health enjoying outdoor life.You should also plan time to visit the mountains around Harstad, the sea, the sailing ships. Strength and cultural tradition are words to describe Harstad.

The tourist office, close to the harbour, gives you a very good service! The staff really knew what they were talking about and they treated everyone with warmth!
