Utsira island

Utsira is a famous island for birdwatchers during the bird migration in the Spring and the Autumn. The lighthouse and in the later years the street art also made Utsira known. If you are planning a trip here, try to go on a day with little wind, as sea can get rough.

Utsira has a little grocery store and a gallery/café run by a Dutch family. Ferry leaves from Garpaskjærskaiene, Risøy. It is not necessary to bring the car to Utsira, as the island is only 2 km long. A good advice is to just park your car at the Garpaskjærskaien (quarry).
