Hike the seashore from one hut to the next
Take it all in
Experience Tamsøya and its varied and magical nature. Cliffs, colourful vegetation, the ripples of the waves on the beach, seagulls calling and the wind in your hair. This is a two-day hike suitable for parties of 2-4. Spend the night on the south, west and northeast end of the island in charming huts with great views.

If you want to experience a break from the stresses of civilization and exchange it for the serenity of the wild, this trip is perfect for you.

RIB trip – one of the many highlights
The resilience of plants and nature is truly fascinating. They claw onto and between rocks and cliffs, where-ever they can find sustenance. Many herbs reside on the island, and most of them are edible.
The majority of the shoreline consists of roches that are easy to walk on. The rock formations and vegetation vary throughout the island, so there’s always something new to see around the next bend.
This is a roche formation on the northern side that the children used to bathe and swim in and around back when the island was permanently inhabited.
Told to Anne by Marie Nilsen, a 85 year-old lady who lived her first 16 years on the island.
Shades of autumn
Stunning autumn colours cover the island in September, with the white caldonia contrasting the vibrant reds and oranges.
Pebble beach in the midnight sun
One of the biggest pebble beaches is located in Hellemolla. Paired with cliffs, making this a truly special place.
There are many photographable scenes all along the route.
