Hovden is embraced by three extraordinary beaches and a wild and beautiful landscape with mountains perfect for hiking. When walking around Hovden you get close to the Arctic elements, the forces of the sea, you get to breathe in the salty winds and really sense the true essence of the fishing village. The shifting weather in this climate gives you both the true experience of life at the coast of Northern Norway and also presents you with spectacular sceneries and experiences. Hovden is a paradise for hikers as well as photographers seeking the midnight sun, the Northern lights or the Arctic everyday life, animal life and wildlife.

Hovden is a great point of departure for biking or hiking in Bø and Vesterålen.
