Navigate towards Gåsvær, Musvær, and Risøya islands and keep your eyes peeled for eagles, cormorants, puffins, seals, and/or harbor porpoises. Dock the boat, and walk 5 minutes to a small boathouse where you can enjoy coffee, tea, and muffins.

    It's an exciting adventure on a rib boat. Thanks for the good weather we saw the beautiful sunset in midnight. The crowd of seagulls was incredible and fishes jumped above the water. Very impressive.
