Environment

Facing the Atlantic Ocean just south of Ålesund lies Herøy, one of Norway’s largest fishing communities. The municipality is concentrated on a group of islands – naked and wild out on the coast with the powerful ocean as their nearest neighbour in the north-west, but sheltered and idyllic on the eastern side. The smell of salt sea, the fantastic archipelago with its cosy holms and bays, boat trips, deep-sea fishing, diving and mountain hiking in easy walking country, are some of the things we have to offer you.

Just 15 km from Lanternen lies Norway’s southernmost bird rock, Runde, also famous for its rich finds of gold from shipwrecks in the days of sailing vessels. The island is protected, but boat trips around the island and easy access by foot, gives you a chance to experience the bird life up close.

Your stay here will give you an eventful holiday.
