Join us on an exciting boat tour to the seal colony just outside of Runde and to nesting cliffs on the west side of the island. Guiding by the captain on board. 

LopheliaAt Runde you will find a rich and fascinating wildlife. Just outside of Runde is the Grasøyana. A small island with one of the largest seal colonies in the region. On the west side of Runde is the nesting grounds for the Atlantic puffin, gannets, razorbill, common murre among some. Birds which is easy to get close to when they are out fishing in the ocean. If you are lucky a white-tailed eagle also might come sweeping over the boat. On a boat safari around the island you will get really close to where the action happens.

Eat a meal out in the jaws of the ocean

In the cafe we offer warm and cold meals. The food we serve is always homemade and often inspired by the ocean. As far as possible we select local, ecological and fair ingredients. The Centre has serving license, and we can provide different menus from lunch to dinner for groups.
