Lighthouse Safari to Utvær


Lighthouse safari from Hardbakke to Utvær

 

Utvær is Norway’s westernmost island group with the country’s westernmost lighthouse. The light from this monumental lighthouse dating from 1900 can be seen 35 km out in the North Sea! Every Saturday in the period 29 June – 17 August, you can join a lighthouse safari. The tour departs from Hardbakke in Solund. Depending on the weather, the tour will head north or south of Ytre Sula and through the island kingdom of Solund.
