A short boat ride across the strait from Lyngvågen takes you to Gjerøyhamn. Here, Jonny Losvik has created one of the finest gardens in Northern Norway here. You can visit the old sheriff’s farmhouse in Rødøy, now converted into a small museum, attend an art and craft exhibition in the restored barn, or just enjoy the beautiful garden. Jonny has invested an impressive amount of work and love in building and maintaining his childhood home.

Jonny and the beautiful garden at Gjerøyhamn were featured in the 2023 NRK program “Der ingen skulle tru at nokon kunne bu.” You can watch the episode here. It’s in Norwegian, but if you want you can skip to the beautiful imagery of the garden at about 18 minutes and 30 seconds into the episode.
