The Coastal Museum in Florø
Starting from the pier we take you through the charming town of Florø. Learn how Florø became an important port along the western coast of Norway, forming a main stop on journeys along the rugged coast to and from Bergen.
The first stop will be at the Coastal Museum. This museum was established in 1980 and is constantly expanding its collection, safeguarding the history and heritage of the coastal villages. The exhibition includes cultural and historical collections, displaying everything from kitchen utensils and furnitures to boats, fi shing and hunting equipment. A separate exhibition demonstrates oil extraction and processing in the North Sea. On this exhibit the room itself is unique, having been designed in a converted pillar of an actual oil-rig.
The tour continues with a drive to Brandsøyåsen Viewpoint. This is a popular recreational area for the local inhabitants. At 293 m above sea level you can enjoy a fantastic 360 degree view of Florø and the surrounding landscape.
On our return to Florø we will visit Fjord Base. Set along the sea at the foot of Brandsøyåsen, this is the regions largest supply base for oil rigs, and one of the principal industries of Florø. The tour wraps up with a drive through the historic town centre to the pier. Florø is a modern town in many ways, yet it is the oldest one in the county. Although Florø has gone through many changes, the original charm has remained.
