Florø – Norway’s westernmost town situated out at the ocean’s edge. A town that was important during the herring fisheries of the 19th century and the 1950s. Today, it plays a key role in developing hydrogen for use in zero-emission vessels.

Explore the archipelago
Take the local boat service from Florø out to the saga island Kinn with its medieval church and the distinctive mountain Kinnaklova. This mountain features in Kinn Bryggeri’s logo, and is a popular motif for Instagram photos.
Stay in style at Svanøy Hovedgård. Find peace and tranquillity, soak up its history and enjoy local fare produced on the island and from the sea around it. The grand manor house is in a beautiful location with views across Svanøybukt bay and the Brufjord, and has been a central hub on the coast all the way back to the Viking Age. Here, you have the opportunity to enjoy a meal in the dining room with its hand-painted wallpaper while looking out onto the garden and the bay below, just as aristocrats and Haugean Movement notables did in their day.
