Your next stop will be the idyllic bird island of Runde. Runde is located in Herøy municipality. This little island in the sea has a small population of people. The main attraction of this island is the 500,000 to 700,000 thousand seabirds that have chosen this island as their home. There are more than 200 different bird species on this little island.
Runde is a wonderful island to visit all year round, but especially in the summer. The island boasts the most majestic cliffs where many of the birds perch.
