Spjærøy island

Hvaler Coastal Museum

Spjærøy is the smallest of the islands with a permanent road connection. Despite the island's modest size, it offers rich cultural and outdoor activities. You will find Kystmuseet ( The Coastal Museum) here, showing Hvaler's hisory, both on land and at sea. Up until the 1800’s, agriculture and fishing were the main industries on Hvaler. Soon after the stone cutting industry arrived. What kind of impact did this industry have on the Hvaler islanders? Find out more about the fisherman, the stonecutter or just take a walk in the beautiful garden filled with apple, pear and plum trees.

The amphiteater "Brottet" incorporates Hvaler's history in their performances on summer evenings. The scenery is magical, and a road trip on the Dypedal road turns into a wonderful and unforgettable experience. A trip by boat or kayak in the idyllic Skjelbu sound is also something you should try. Except Sand Marina there are no no permanent shops or cafes on Spjærøy, but this is rarely any problem with the short distance to Vesterøy or Asmaløy. Hvaler Campground is located near Highway 108 - the last road to the right just before the bridge that runs over to Asmaløy.
