From NOK 256
This tour by express boat and bus takes you from Ålesund via Hareid to Fosnavåg – the community center of Land of the Waves. Fosnavåg is the entry point for many great activities.
The most spectacular spot in Land of the Waves is the bird island Runde. The island is a popular destination all year round but is spectacular in the summer due to its teeming birdlife. In the season there are between 500,000 and 700,000 seabirds on the island, most of them live on the bird mountain.
The bird mountain is the southernmost in Norway and is the most species-rich seabird area in the country. There is an active birdlife all year on the island, and in the winter you can study the toughest species, which thrive in the harsh and wild climate. It is also possible to see the colonies by hiking up the mountain along marked paths. It is important to note that conservation rules apply due to the vulnerable nature.
There is a Travel like the locals trip available to Runde from Fosnavåg.
Land of the Waves offer numerous other exciting activities! You can explore the area by bicycle, kayak, rental boat, rib or sightseeing boat, visit Herøy coastal museum or Sunnmørsbadet (with as many as 5 different pools). You can do a guided hike, go on a seaweed safari, watch the Runde treasure and have fantastic culinary experiences at Skotholmen. And not to forget – Fosnavåg will soon have a spectacular zipline which will be available from the summer of 2021. Check out www.visithavlandet.no for more information.

(The tours are set up so that the buses, ferries and boats connect.)
