Hike to Runde lighthouse

There is something admirable about lighthouses, what stories do they really conceal? Runde Lighthouse is located in the middle of the open sea, among cliffs shaped by the harsh coastal nature and the Atlantic Ocean lying just outside.

Get insight into the history of Runde Lighthouse

On the trip to Runde Fyr, our nature guide shares stories from the island, including tales of a lost gold treasure and the unique natural features of Runde. You'll delve into lighthouse history and island ecology with expert knowledge from the guide. The tour begins with a meeting at Runde Environmental Center. Inside, you'll receive a guided tour of the exhibition, where the guide discusses the island's birds, coastal ecology, and the intriguing discovery of a nearby gold treasure. Following the exhibition tour, we ascend the mountain. Outdoors, you'll witness steep cliffs, observe the seabirds' breeding grounds, and admire the magnificent lighthouse.
