Opplev Runde is a part of Runde Environmental Center

Do you want to help develop a new destination for food culture at Runde?

We are looking for a new head chef, get in touch today!

We are looking for someone who wants to help further develop the visitor center at Runde Environmental Center in Sunnmøre in Møre og Romsdal. The coast right outside our door is a food dish we have been enjoying for thousands of years, and now we need YOU to join us on the journey of developing an exciting year-round destination.

Our food vision is to preserve the traditions we have around us, while constantly drawing inspiration and renewing ourselves. We have a predominance of guests in the summer months, but through various projects we are working to increase our year-round operations. We already have a strong focus on local produce and sustainable food, but we want more of this!

We are constantly developing new, educational activities for visitors, where the combination of research and experience is in focus. We also want the food experience to be a bigger part of this.

We also have accommodation in nice campsites that are rented out to visitors throughout the year.
