The island of Ekkerøya is well worth a short detour for its cliffs, sandy beach, and rich birdlife. You can walk around the island in an hour or two, exploring the small trails and, in late summer, hunting for cloudberries. A shorter, 1.5 kilometer trail is also available.
Over 50 different species of birds have been recorded on Ekkerøya

Follow the signs to Ekkerøya and once on the island continue towards the harbor. Just before you reach the harbor, look for a “Feriehus” sign and turn left. Then take the next left and shortly after you’ll see a gravel parking lot.
