On Runde in Herøy you will find the southernmost bird cliff in Norway. Large quantities of sea birds breed in the bird colony on the west side of the island. The birds stay here from April to September but the main season is May and June.
It is a spectacular and interesting experience to see the birds up close. To get to the bird cliffs you can go by foot or take one of the many guided boat trips around the island. This is two quite different ways to experience the bird life, and it may be well worth to try both a hike and a boat trip. Runde has several alternatives for accommodation. Some examples are Goksøyr Camping, Runde Miljøsenter (Environmental Centre) and Christineborg Motel. It’s also possible to stay at the tourist cottage “Runde lighthouse” and you find several houses and cottages for rent. There are two cafes and one museum on the island.

You can also find a lot of beautiful nature tracks, accommodations and fishing opportunities on the neighbouring islands. In the nearest town, Fosnavåg, you will find several shops and restaurants. You will also find the popular swimming facility “Herøy Fritidsbad”.
