Hagensborg BC is a Norwegian settlement in the Bella Coola Valley, a 15-minute drive from Bella Coola on the Alexander Mackenzie Highway.

The historic home of Nuxalk First Nations, the Bella Coola Valley developed when it became a route to the gold fields during the Cariboo Gold Rush. The Hudson's Bay established a trading post here in 1867. Norwegian colonists came to Hagensborg in 1894, attracted to the area because it resembled the fjords of Norway.

The area's early history was also that of the "grease trail" along which furs and leather were carried in exchange for salmon and eulachon grease. Guides are recommended for modern hikers as there are many bears in this area. There are a number of First Nations artifacts in the area as well as pictographs, a First Nations village site, a burial ground and smokehouse. Canoeing, hiking and horseback riding are all popular recreational sports.

Visitors enjoy seeing Norwegian Heritage House, restored to show life of the early settlers.

Hagensborg accommodations include campgrounds and a bed and breakfast.
