Island hopping – tailor your own trip

The area of Salten is rich in nature and wildlife. Where do you want to go ashore? Perhaps you want your "own" sandy beach?

Contact us and we will tailor your island hopping. Perhaps we serve fresh seafood and something cold to drink on a beach, maybe we go look for the sea eagle, or we head out to the ocean and breathe some fresh sea air.

If we are lucky, we will see whales or seal colonies.
