Saga island of Kinn

Kinn was the central herring area in Norway for the most part of the 19th century. At the height, there lived around 15.000 people on Kinn and the surrounding islands in the herring season. Today there are only 3 inhabitants on Kinn.

The legendary Kinn church is built in Roman style and has been in use since the 12th century. It was later extended and restores. Today the reassembles as near as possible its original style. The church is the oldest in the region of Sunnfjord.

There is beautiful terrain on the island. There is marked trails around the island, and you can also hike on top of the Kinn mountain and Kinnaklova, which is a famous sailing mark on the coast.
