Utvær, located 8 km west of Ytre Sula, is the name of the group of islands furthest west in Norway, with the westernmost lighthouse in the country. It boasts both historical significance and captivating natural surroundings. Utvær is an old fishing community. No one lives there on a permanent basis anymore, but a lot of tourists come to visit during the summer. Join us for a walk on the island where you can stroll in Paradise - a beautiful garden. Visit the ruins of a chapel that was moved in 1718 and see the marks in the mountainside by Vikings sharpening their swords.
The most fascinating aspect of the trip, however, is the nature and the ocean – furthest west in Norway. Utvær is famous in history right back to the Viking Age. In 1066 Harald Hardråde sailed out from Solund when he left to conquer England. 200 vessels plus supply boats and other small craft were gathered together, and the saga says that some of the vessels departed from Utvær. The battle ended with defeat at Stamford Bridge. On the east side of the bay near the Likberget Mountain, you can see some marks in the mountainside.
The story is that these are marks made by Vikings sharpening their swords before leaving on a raid.Fishing has always been the main source of income on Utvær. Proximity to the fishing fields made it a centre for seasonal fishing.The imposing lighthouse was built in 1900, its cast-iron structure towering 31 metres above the top of the mountain. The beam of light is projected 45 metres above sea level across the surface of the ocean, blinking every 30 seconds and visible up to 35 km out in the North Sea.
