There is much to explore here, both over and under the surface, for adventurers of all ages. Fish for crabs and find interesting traces of the Ice Age.

WELCOME IN, PROTECT NATURE!
Welcome to the national park! There is plenty of room here, provided we take care and keep in mind the people and nature around us. National parks represent the very best of Norwegian nature. Their protected status helps conserve the landscape and a diverse flora and fauna. This means it will be possible to create wonderful memories of hikes and treks to this landscape even for future generations. 

Freedom to roam 
In outfields, you are free to go wherever you want, and you can pitch your tent or set up a hammock, so long as you stay more than 150 metres from inhabited houses or cabins. Please note that tents or hammocks are not permitted north of Øytangen Farm or at Sandbakken further south. Inside the national park, you may hike, bike, paddle or travel by boat anywhere you want. Exceptions include areas where seafowl are nesting. These areas are signposted.

Cultural heritage sites are protected from damage and destruction. Loose cultural heritage artefacts must not be moved or removed. 
Waste Remember to clean up after yourself and bring all of your waste back with you. Bonfires and barbecues straight on the ground are not permitted. Exceptions are facilities built specifically for this purpose. 

Hunting and fishing Inside the national park, you may engage in hunting and fishing subject to the same rules that apply to other water and remote areas under relevant legislation. Fishing and harvesting of shells and crustaceans are permitted. Hunting for seafowl is not permitted within a dedicated zone north of Stråholmen and certain other areas. 

Dogs are welcome. Inside the national park, dogs must be kept on a leash yearround. Be mindful of wild game, grazing animals and other visitors at all times.

Motorized traffic on land is not permitted. You may operate a motor boat throughout the national park, with the exception of dedicated zones reserved for seafowl from 15 April to 15 July. The use of life vests is mandatory in small water crafts. 

Good planning makes great experiences!
