Enjoy the idyllic small town, with exciting activities and scenic experiences in easy reach

Summer visitors have yet to arrive in Florø, which means plenty of room to experience what Florø has to offer. Enjoy great food and drink in the eateries along the street Strandgata, or explore the spectacular archipelago on its doorstep. Cycle on the emerald, grass-covered island Kinn and be enchanted by the island’s history, medieval church and its distinctive mountain Kinnaklova. On the fertile island of Svanøy, you can stay at the venerable Svanøy Hovedgård and see the deer at the Norwegian Deer Centre at close range. If you’re looking for spectacular views, we recommend combining cycling with walking on the islands Askrova, Reksta and Skorpa.
