Sights in Brønnøysund

Some 15km south of Brønnøysund, Torghatten on Torget island is a significant local landmark. The peak, pierced by a hole 160m long, 35m high and 20m wide, is accessed from its base by a good 20-minute walking track. The best perspective of the hole is from the southbound Hurtigruten coastal ferry as it rounds the island.
Around 400 types of herb, 100 varieties of rose and 1000 species of cactus flourish at Hildurs Urterarium. At Tilrem, about 6km north of Brønnøysund, it also produces its own wine. There are some rustic old farm buildings, a small art gallery and the shop carries locally grown products. The garden also makes a lovely spot for a lunch stop; dishes seasoned with locally grown herbs, of course.
