Hasfjord

Hasfjord is located ca. 8 km from Hasvik. There is only a rocky gravel road which leads here, but it is worth the effort, since the drive along the fjord is a true adventure in a charming landscape!

On the one side of the road, you will see steep mountains and cliffs, while the other side of the road is only a few feet from the rocky shoreline….There is lots of vegetation in Hasfjord. In summer and autumn, you can pick different kinds of wild berries.

Hasfjord has once been an active coastal village with post office and a small fish-processing company. Today, only two families live here, but some people are so lucky to own a cabin in this area. 

You really get the impression of being way out in an old-fashioned farming area when you come here. Goats climb the rocky terrain; sheep graze the pastures close to the sea and chicken parade around the houses. Horses, cats and dogs are part of the idyll, too. The place is a true paradise and children in particular love the place and the various farm animals.

Close your eyes and listen to that unique mixture of the seagull, chicken, goats and sheep sounds. Hasfjord really is a fantastic place -in winter, too (see pictures)!

The travel-related business Hasfjord Villmarksopplevelser offers for example horseback riding, kayak trips, diving and guided trips.
