Vega – The unforgettable place!

Vega er en unik kommune og et øysamfunn bestående av hele 6000 større og mindre øyer, holmer og skjær ute i havgapet på Helgelandskysten! Av disse 6000 øyene er bare 4 bebodd gjennom hele året! En idyll uten sidestykke, men du bør ha båt for å besøke/bo i denne kommunen!

Folketallet er relativt beskjedent: 1227 mennesker fordelt på 163,3 kvadratkilometer omgitt av storhavet og en natur man nesten ikke finner maken til andre steder i verden! Det er jo da naturlig at næringslivet i kommunen for det meste baserer seg  på fiske, havbruk, jordbruk, turisme og ellers en del servicenæringer?

Og for dem som ønsker å besøke Vega, gå hen og kjøp deg et godt kamera, gjerne med et teleobjektiv om du skulle være så heldig å møte havørna . . .
Det er også et eget Turistkontor på øya!

Vi har dessverre ikke flere bilder fra Vega i øyeblikket, men kanskje vil noen hjelpe oss med det etter vært?  I mellomtiden så finnes det noen bilder på nettet.

I 2004 ble øykommunen Vega skrevet inn på UNESCO’s ‘Verdensarv’-liste! Har du ikke egen båt, men likevel kunne tenke deg å besøke dette øy-paradiset, så finnes det heldigvis ferger fra Horn eller Tjøtta, men den enkleste metoden er antagelig ‘hurtigbåt’ fra Brønnøysund og/eller Sandnessjøen som begge har veiforbindelse!

IMG_5175bVega is a unique municipality and an island community, totally consisting of  6000 large and small islands, islets and reefs on the ‘Helgeland’ coast line! Of these 6 000 islands  only four are inhabited throughout the year! An idyll of unmatched beauty, but you need to have a boat to visit / stay in this municipality!

The population is relatively modest: 1,227 people spread over 163.3 square kilometers surrounded by the ocean and  a nature you may hardly find anywhere else in the world!
It’s only natural that businesses in this municipality  are mostly based on fishing, aquaculture, agriculture, tourism and otherwise some service industries?

And for those who want to visit Vega, firstly buy yourself a good camera, preferably with a telephoto lens ( if you should be so lucky to meet a sea eagle. . .  )
And there is, of course, a Tourist Office on Vega!

We unfortunately don’t have any more photos from Vega at the moment, but maybe someone will help us with that as we move along? In the meantime, there are
some
photos online

In 2004, the island municipality of Vega was inscribed into UNESCO‘s’ World Heritage’ list! If you do not have your own boat, but nevertheless would like to visit this island paradise, there are fortunately ferries fromHorn’ orTjøtta’, but the easiest method would  probably be  going by high speed ferry from from Brønnøysund and / or Sandnessjøen which both have roads to the mainland!

    Hi, Sue, –

    Well, not my picture this time🙂
    Yes I can imagine that would be quite a treat, but then again the weather changes fast out here.
    But regardless of weather, it’ll be a lot of things to take in. And ‘life’ in some forms are found in the smallest cracks and crevices . . .
    I think you’d love it out here!

  3. That is a small population… Oh to wake up in that little Red house and enjoy that view every day.. Fabulous photo.. And just catching up with all my followers.. So forgive if I do not back-track today.. Hope you are well.. and you are able to get around in more comfort now.. Hugs to you .. Take care.. Love Sue xox

      Hi Sue,
      I didn’t respond to your question about my health, simply because I didn’t know!
      I feel OK, and I believe I’m OK, but with this kind of company I keep, one may never be 100% certain. Never! But my PSA is still rated 0,1 (The lowest count possible) and I’m still on hormones (terminating in May 2015) Then it’s uncharted territory for a while . . .
