    Flor��, sailing boat in harbour

    Watch boats in Florø hamn (Florø harbour), we were lucky to spot this old sailing boat, we thought it might have come here especially to join in the festivities related to Sankt Hans and the bonfire on the 23rd of June, 2008.

    Lighthousemania

    by Saagar Written Nov 18, 2004

    As more and more lighthouses are being automated and depopulated, some interesting pieces of real estate become available. Not for sale, but for use. The lighthouses remain state property for the most part, but increasingly being maintained and run as sightseeing objects, accommodation and party locations by local companies and/or an organisation Fyrhistorisk Forening.
    Florø's vicinity has numerous lighthouses, some more spectacular than others, and they are availalbe for visits, rents etc. A very forward local tourism initiative and eager local lighthouse "activists" have ensured mainenance, loocal use and commercial utilization (tourism).

    The westernmost lighthouse and scrap of land

    by Saagar Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Ytterøyane is as far towards the west you can come in Norway (except Jan Mayen).
    These islands and the tall lighthouse can be visited from Florø.
    The tower is 31 meters tall, the entire lighthouse is close to the original 1881 version and protected as a cultural memorial. The islands are protected for their avifauna and flora.

    Stabben lighthouse

    by Saagar Updated Apr 4, 2011

    This lighthouse is located at the entrance of Florø harbour, and built on such a small island that the building was made wider than the island.
    You can visit this place, and rent it as accommodation or for a party/celebration. I guess restaurants in town would be happy to cater for you, too. To get there you can use the sea taxi.
