Boat tours around Runde
If you want to see the birds better and hear some stories from the local skipper, take a boat tour from the pier right outside the Goksoyr campsite. You will learn, for instance, why Runde is called the Treasure Island. As it happens, some gold is said to have been found after the Dutch ship "Akerendam" was shipwrecked on the coast there. You will see a settlement at the foot of the cliff and some interesting caves.

The road ends at the bird cliff, where there is a small car park, but it may be used by buses to turn back. Here you can climb the cliff and walk along some marked paths to see the birds. We were too late in the summer for them but, even so, a walk on the cliff was a marvellous experience in the gorgeous weather.
A journey to remember
The winding road to Runde from Hareid takes you across a picturesque area of big and small islands connected by bridges, dikes or tunnels. You can see small beaches down in the valleys, colourful villages. The scenery changes as in a kaleidoscope. If you are the one who is driving, take care - it's easy to become sidetracked by the views.
