The dramatic landscape in Ulstein has been moulded by ocean and ice, and consists of long and sandy beaches, flat lowlands and steep mountainsides. With the Atlantic in the west, Ulstein creates a natural gateway to the fiords in the east, and farthest out on the mainland the village Flø lies, with its long beaches under massive cliffs. Here you can fish, surf, climb or just take a hike in the mountain or stroll by the beachside.

Ulstein municipality has got a beautiful nature with varied and fascinating wildlife. The flora in Ulstein comprises between 600 and 700 species, some in sun-filled areas, others clinging to windy mountain peaks and cliffs. Here you can find the rock Eclogite.

The birds also seem to thrive in Ulstein, with 226 different species observed, and 123 of these are found nesting here as well.

The island Borgarøya lies in the archipelago outside Ulstein, and was a large trading community in the 1600.

Ulstein is a paradise for anyone who likes the ocean and what it has to offer. Sitting at Flø and watching the sun melting into the sea a late summer evening is an amazing and unforgettable experience!
