Although small on the map, the Northern Norwegian community of Hamarøy boasts sights and experiences that draw visitors from all over the world. Not only are these attractions manifested in distinctively beautiful and untouched nature – complete with hundreds of isles, white beaches and crystal blue waters, maelstroms, forests and steep mountains – but also in the cultural and architectural interpretation of one of Scandinavia’s most famous authors. Welcome to The Hamsun Centre and the hometown of Nobel Prize-winning author Knut Hamsun – a place to learn, reflect and be amazed.
