Overview
Details

The unique island communities have a peaceful atmosphere. There are no cars on the islands, it is the importance of the ocean that counts.

The history stretches from the Viking age to the growth of the «herring town» in the 1800's.

Rib-tour to the island community of Røvær We go ashore at Røvær where we meet the locals. You willl have the opportunity to visit the aquaculture center where you learn about the history of deep sea fishing. A unique way to discover an island community.

Island safari with Rib boat We whiz away between the city ​​islands out to the open sea. The tour starts calmly through the straight of Smedasundet before we accelerate out to the open and the island communities of Feøy and Røvær. We pass through chanels and islands while the captain tells stories on the way.

Sightseeing On this tour we mostly stay inshore. We whiz away through  the straight of Karmsundet with its vast history from the Viking Age, the «herring town» and the industry. The options for cultural stops are many ranging from the viking farm at Avaldsnes or a nice meal at Borgøy.

Høyevarde lighthouse is an exclusive cultural heritage. At arrival you automatically lower your shoulders. The lighthouse dates back to 1700 and has been a very important lighthouse in the straight of Karmsundet – also called the Way North – which has given Norway its name. Høyevarde of today was built in 1858 and was also a customs station, boathouse and a bakery. Today it is the well-reputed chef Finn Lothe who runs the kitchen. They only use fresh locally produced and grown ingredients. They have their own sheep, chickens, beehive and herb garden. The menu changes with the seasons.

Practical information: Our Rib-tours are suitable for familiy and friends, as transport, birthday celebrations, company tour etc. Meeting point: To be announced by our local captain Duration: 2 hours including security briefing Equipment included: survival suits, life jacket, protection glasses and gloves.
