Hidra is a scenic island just outside of Flekkefjord. It is accessible via a car ferry.
A channel divides the Hidra island in two. Hidra can be described as having striking, lush nature and a beautiful coastal and cultural landscape. There are many traces here from the olden times, and history from the maritime life is still strong. This lovely island has 600 inhabitants.
There are accomodation (Skipperhuset and Kongshamn Gjestgiveri), a grocery store at Rasvåg and Kirkehavn, restaurants (Isbua, Kongshamn Bryggerestaurant and Skipperhuset). The interesting coastal museum (Fedrenes Minne) is well worth a visit. Nice artifacts can also be purchased at Fruenes Hus in Kirkehavn. At Isbua restaurant, there is a gallery on the second floor, of the local artist Olav Omland.
To enjoy a beautful view of the island, take a 30 minutes easy walk to Hågåsen. On top of this mountain, you will se ruins from the war as this was a coastal battery during WW2. This is a nice area for photography and a picnic!
