Overview

Island Hopping to Solund, Bulandet and Værlandet is a round trip to the westernmost islands in Norway. Traveling by boat you get close to the unique and spectacular scenery on the coast, and you get to experience the everyday life of the people living on the islands.

Island Hopping to Solund, Bulandet and Værlandet is a trip to the westernmost islands in Norway. Traveling by the local post boat you will get close to the unique scenery and the everyday life of the people living on islands.

The municipality of Solund has over 1700 islands, islet and skerries. The local mail boat takes you on a guided tour among these islands. Keep your eyes open and your camera ready during the trip - spotting wild life like the white tailed eagle, seal and otter is a common sight in the area. The boat makes a stop at the historical trade post Gåsvær, a small island far out at sea. Here you will meet Anne Marie – a local farmer, politician and tourist host. There are 4 different island hopping tours available in the summer. Whether you would like a one-way tour or a round trip, you are guaranteed to get a wonderful experience far out at sea!

 

4 ALTERNATIVES
You can choose between 4 different island hopping tours. 

1. Hardbakke – Bulandet, 11:00: The original island hopping tour from Hardbakke to Bulandet.

This tour can easily be combined with experiences in the island communities Solund, Bulandet and Værlandet.>

2. Hardbakke – Bulandet – Hardbakke, 11:00: The perfect round trip for people staying in Hardbakke and Solund. The local mail boat takes you on a guided tour at noon.
