Description

Norway's southernmost still-functioning traditional fishing village with a permanent population of about 20-25. This small island community has small summer café, several places to stay and two pottery workshops. The Ona lighthouse (1867) is painted red, 15 metres tall and stands on Onakalven, the highest point on the island. It is possible to go up to the lighthouse, and there is a marvellous view of the ocean and the mainland from here. A small bridge connects Ona to the island of Husøya. On Husøya we find a small chapel with a graveyard and a long sandy beach.

Take the ferry from Hollingen, 19 km west of Molde, to Aukra. Drive 10 km to Småge and leave your car. There are 4 ferries daily to Ona.
