Student life in Nesna

Nesna is a village on the tip of a peninsula that extends into the open sea at the Helgeland coast. With the mountain behind you, you are surrounded by the sea on all other sides. Ringed by three islands and stunning coastal scenery, it offers many possibilities for those who enjoy the outdoors.
