Test your limits in Haugesund

Participate in soft and extreme activities outdoors on the pedestrianised island of Røvær.



After having breakfast at the hotel you will walk to Haugesund’s inner harbour. Here you will board the speedboat that will take you to the lovely island of Røvær. There are approximately 100 people living on the island and there are no cars, so it is quite a unique destination.

History of the island

After arriving you will go for a walk and learn about life and the history of the island. Lunch is served at the local hotel, Røvær Kulturhotell, and afterwards you will get back in the boat and head towards the mainland for more exciting and challenging activities. In the evening, dinner is served in a rustic environment with an open fireplace, where you get to unwind before heading back to Haugesund.
