Visit the saga island of Kinn and allow yourself to be captivated by the island, its medieval church and the beautiful scenery. With great walks and easy access from Florø, Kinn is a popular year-round excursion.
A local boat sails from the coastal town of Florø out among islands and skerries to the saga island of Kinn. Once ashore, follow the road to the right to Kinn Church. The walk to the church takes approx. 30 minutes at a comfortable pace along a 1 km gravel road. Members of the church are on hand to welcome visitors every day from 25 June to 31 July. You are welcome to step inside the medieval church to experience the special atmosphere before, during and after the daily offices at 11.30 and 19.00. Major restoration work in the church is expected to start during the summer of 2018. For information on when you can visit the church, ring +47 57 74 30 00 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
For a longer walk, you can walk around the island before returning to the quay to take the local boat back to Florø. From the church, it’s approx. 3 km around the island and back to the quay. Allow around 2 hours for the walk. It’s possible to stay the night in Kinn’s old schoolhouse, now operated by Flora Turlag. You can borrow the key at the tourist information office in Florø.
