On the way from Harstad to Stornes you pass Røkenes manor with its golf course and gallery. Soon after, you arrive at the first ferry crossing which will take you to the majestic island of Grytøy. The landscape here is spectacular with tall mountains and green meadows. After an exciting bike ride around Grytøy you arrive at the next ferry crossing. The 30-minute voyage takes you to the saga island of Bjarkøy, with its idyllic archipelago, historical sites, untamed coastline and fertile agricultural land. There is also a ferry to Sandsøy if you want further adventures. Are you going from Bjarkøy to Krøttøy, you need to catch the express boat from here.
