Røssøyvågen is a picturesque fishing village on the west coast of Gossen, with its very own steam ship quay. This is the perfect place to watch the sun disappear into the ocean, and if you’re lucky, you might see the northern light dance across a dark ocean during a cold, winter night.

The idyllic and historical fishing village used to be an important trading centre, with is red-painted boathouses, general store and fish reception. Next to the small boat harbour you can also see a piece of history in the shape of a barge, which got stuck on an underwater ledge during WW2.
