Sandhornøya Things to Do

    The famous hymnwriter and priest Elias Blix
    was born here the 24th February 1836,
    and a statue is raised for him next to his home.
    The house where he was born and raised is today privately owned - but the public statue is a nice memorial - so is the magnificent landscape which inspired his works so much.

    Nordstranda kapell - the chapel of Sandhornøya. It was built in 1963, located near the beach, with the "Sandhornet" mountain throning proudly in the background.

    This is what the cellar looks like
    after you've got a water-leak in the kitchen
    above mid-winter!!
    All the ice taps makes it look like a cave
    landscape...

    Favorite thing: Early sunset while the days are still short in winter - got this view while I was walking in the mountain side.
