Experience the majestic Selja Monastery

Overview

On Selja, the holy isle of the north, lies Selja Monastery, an unique piece of medieval history. The monastery was built by the Benedictine monks in the early 12th century in memory of St. Sunniva. Join us for a journey back in time!

The trip starts in Selje harbour, where the monastery boat “Selja” will take you on a comfortable boat trip to Selja Monastery. The boat trip lasts for 15 minutes.

When you embark the island of Selja, it is like travelling back in time. Our guides will tell the exiting story about the legend of St.Sunniva and the Selja Monastery. You can walk in the same halls as the benedict munks did for more than 700 years ago, and walk the shallow stairways to the top of the tower. Follow the footsteps of St.Sunniva to the holy Sunnivacave, and enjoy the magnificent view of the Selja Abbey. Maybe you want to taste the healing water from Sunnivas well?

The boat trip is a nature experience in itself. On the north side of the island we have a good view of the southern side of the Stadt Pennisula towards the Western Cape of Norway. Here you can study the steep cliffs that dive into the ocean, and the small villages inbetween them. One of them is the village of Drage, where the Vikings pulled their boats over the mountain to avoid the infamous sea of Stadt. On the southern side of the island we look at several islands and lighthouses. We will also have a look at where the the Norwegian Government is planning to build the worlds first ship tunnel. If we are lucky, we will be accompanied by sea eagles on our way.

Daily departures from Selje, all seasons. Check our website for bookings and availability.
