Nordsjøporten

  • Bulandet & Værlandet, Askvoll
  •  /  km From You
Overview

Here at the mouth of the fjord, under the watchful eye of the majestic mountain Alden, the islands appear like a string of pearls, beautifully linked together by six bridges and 5.240 m of road. The road "Nordsjøporten" is not only important for communication in the area but also allows for a fantastic journey through the island kingdom.


Take the ferry from Fure or Askvoll to Værlandet and either drive, walk or bicycle over the bridges to Bulandet. The walk will take about two hours one way. It will be an unforgettable day trip!


Bulandet is Norway's western-most fishing community. Bulandet includes 365 islands and has 240 inhabitants.


The exhibition «Bulandet – past and present» provides an overview of daily life and fisheries in Bulandet.


Værlandet has a population of approximately 200. Fishing and fish farming are the most important industries, but both tourism and the export of high quality stone (greenstone breccia) to Italy are expanding. There is a signposted walk to Klettane and a collection of picturesque small houses on the water’s edge in Værøyhamna harbour.


In 2012 the Norwegian Seabird Center opend at Værlandet. The exhibition at Norwegian Seabird Center shows that the fate of man is tied together with the fate of the seabirds along the coast of Norway.
