What to do
 
Kongens Ring : www.heroyspelet.no

Herøy Kystcamp is the ideal basis for much more than fishing.You can walk or bicycle for miles along good cycle-paths, stroll along in the countryside or up on nearby mountaintops with an excellent view of the endless ocean towards the west and the impressive Sunnmørs Alps to the east.

By car it takes about 10 minutes to get to the famous bird-island Runde. If you want to spend the day you can easily reach famous and popular places like : Ålesund, Geiranger, the Briksdal- gletcher, West Cape and the Selje monastery ruins.

Herøy Gard, a museum and historical centre is only 10 minutes away, by car. Here you can enjoy the magic historical atmosphere in the museum area or just stroll around on peaceful paths around the island. In the first week-end of July a spectacular historical play is performed on the outdoor stage here.

But then you might be more interested in the underwater terrain and life, if so you won't have to go far to find exciting woods of sea tangle and,with a bit of luck, or maybe with the aid fo local knowledge, you can find old wrecks. The Runde-treasure is well known in “diver-circles”.

For the kids there is always lots of interesting exploration to be done among stones and plants on the beach. There is also a local playground for children only 50 meters outside our campingarea.

Then, in the evenings, many of our guests find it nice to gather around the bonfire and watch the sunset – or simply get together in the grill-house.
