This round trip takes you to Ona – a tiny island community out in the ocean. The trip starts in Ålesund by by high-speed ferry to Harøya. Then you go by bus to Finnøya and on to Ona by ferry. The ferry stops at Sandøya before Ona. Passengers to Ona should stay on the ferry during the short stay at Sandøya.
Ona is Norway’s southernmost traditional fishing village and has a permanent population of approx. 25. The island also has a ceramics workshop and a small kiosk/shop. In the summer (typically June - August), there’s a café and possibilities for overnight stays.
On “Onakalven”, the island highest point, you find Ona lighthouse. From the lighthouse, you have a magnificent view of the ocean and towards the mainland.
Ona is a tranquil place where you can thoroughly enjoy the peace and quiet!
The trip to Ona is as fantastic in the summer as in the winter. Remember, though, that the island is located out in the ocean and the weather conditions can be harsh. Therefore, it is important to bring warm and windproof clothes.
If you go there outside of the peak season in the summer, we recommend bringing some food and drinks as well, as the island’s shop has a limited offering.
