Description

During a storm, Golta is both fascinating and terrifying. As you watch the ocean spray shoot several hundred meters towards the road, the sea and sky appearing as one in the mist, and thirty-meter-high waves smash against the cliffs, you’re experiencing the rawness of nature at its extreme. In Golta, storms are a natural attraction, both thrilling and hazardous, they demand caution and respect. Many a traveller has been caught unaware by the giant waves and swept out to sea. But Golta also has a gentler side. Take a stroll on a quiet summer’s evening and enjoy the calm sea and glowing horizon. A chance to experience one of the most breathtaking coastal panoramas in the world.
