Stay in cosy cabins or comfortable hotels and enjoy the local food - either you catch it yourself or let a chef prepare a tasty meal with fresh, local ingredients. It's all about surroundings that give you and your loved one the perfect frame for nourishing your relation.
In the charming fishing village of Kalvåg you will find good atmosphere, great food and savor coastal culture. Knutholmen is the heart of the village. Placed around the little bay you will find sea houses, a restaurant with a dance floor, hotel rooms and conference facilities. Kalvåg itself is a large living hotel! Knutholmen specialize in food from the sea. Fresh raw ingredients are important for a good result; Kalvåg is located literally in the larder with fishing grounds just a stone throw away.

In Kalvåg you can enjoy wellness treatments or just relax on the indoor beach at the spa. There are many hiking trails to choose from, from easy, family friendly walks to Hornelen - the highest sea cliff in Europe. Don't miss a visit to Grotlesanden, a beautiful white sandy beach. A fascinating sight in all kinds of weather!

In May 2016 a new, spectacular hotel opens at Værlandet in Askvoll. Værlandet Havhotell is a unique oceanfront hotel. You are invited to stay within modern architecture in an open landscape close to the sea. From your room you may rejoice in endless views of the horizon and the majestic cliff island Alden. The hotel is a perfect base to explore the beautiful archipelago Værlandet and Bulandet in your own time. The best time to do anything - or nothing.
Right by the hotel you can enjoy local food at Værlandet Gjestehamn. Meet the local hosts – you are guaranteed to be well taken cared of!
Other good locations for a romantic getaway on these islands are Bulandsferie and Liv & Lyst. Here you can stay at comfortable cabins, located right by the sea side.
Quality Hotel Florø is beautifully situated in the heart of the coastal city of Florø, the westernmost town in Norway. The hotel is located directly on the waterfront with a scenic view of the fjords and the majestic mountains. The hotel restaurant is one of the best in town. During the summer, you can join a guided tour at Kinn Brewery. Kinn Brewery is one of the best craft beer breweries in Norway. Their slogan is “doing it the old-fashioned way”, and the guided tour is both an interesting and tasty experience!

Florø is a charming coastal town with local shops, cafes and restaurants. If you want to enjoy the nature, you don’t have to go far. Go for a walk up Storeåsen, which offers great view of the islands, fjords and mountains. This is also a great spot to watch the sunsets!
Many beautiful islands surround Florø. Most famous is the legendary island of Kinn, where you will find a beautiful stone church from the 12th century. Don’t miss Svanøy, where you can visit the historic Svanøy Mansion. Here it is also possible to stay overnight. Rent a bike at the local shop by the harbour and go for a ride around the island. We recommend stopping by Norwegian Deer Center when they feed the animals – it is truly an amazing experience to get close to these beautiful animals!
