Håøya island is one of the Oslo Fjord's coziest islands.

Håøya – The Pearl of the Oslo Fjord

Right next to the fortress island Oscarsborg lies Håøya, with boat connections from Oslo and Drøbak in the summer and on weekends in spring and autumn. This is one of the Oslo Fjord's coziest islands with idyllic swimming coves, great hiking trails, designated boat spots, the café Håøya Naturverksted with its goats, and nice camping spots. A varied and idyllic island gem to visit both for a day trip or an overnight stay. Håøya boasts a very rich biodiversity, with over 550 plant species.

The southern part of the island is classified as a nature reserve with valuable old-growth forest and nesting sea eagles. On Håøya, you'll also find one of the Oslo Fjord's coziest cafés serving famous cinnamon buns made with goat milk – and during the summer season, the goats are milked every day at 2:00 PM, and children are invited to watch.
