The final leg of the voyage takes us northward to the peaceful town of Måløy.

The coastal town of Måløy on the island of Vågsøy is Norway’s most important fishing port, exporting fish products to destinations across the globe. Måløy surrounded by mountains, lies where the fjord meets the sea, remote and peaceful. The island surrounded by lighthouses has a beautiful silver sand beach and is close to the famous Kannesteinen, a rock, molded by the sea into a spectacular mushroom-like shape.

We go into quay after breakfast tuesday morning, enough time to explore the place. You can join in on Coasteering or Yoga at the beautiful Refvik beach, these tours must be prebooked. Fishing is important in Måløy and we invite you to go fishing. Later that day we plan to prepare the food together.

You can also explore Måløy on your own. The quayside is lively in summer. You can’t be in Måløy without visiting  «Kaibutikken» on the quay. This local shop for sport fishing has everything you can dream of in sport-fishing, but it’s a charming mess in here, so you will not be able to find anything yourself!

There are hiking trails from the City Center into the island and  Måløy has a Second World War history center and there is also a fishing museum you can visit.
