Welcome to Norway's southernmost living fishing village – Ona. The island is located in the ocean gap at the far end of the Romsdal coast, and 16 people live here all year round.
The picturesque island has a beauty that attracts travelers from far and near, and the most famous attraction is the lighthouse Ona Fyr. The lighthouse was built in 1865 and is centrally located on the island's highest point, Onakalven. It is possible to enter the lighthouse, and from the top you will be rewarded with a fantastic view of the ocean and the mainland.
In the area, you wil find a small summer café, two pottery workshops, a craft shop, a chapel and a long, white sandy beach. The surroundings offer highly memorable experiences, with peaceful spots where you can enjoy the silence and tranquility.
On the island, there are holiday homes located directly on the quay, and local supplyers offer a wide range of activities on site, including various forms of fishing. Ona is a great destination both during summer and winter. The location close to the open sea and rough weater requires you to bring warm and windproof clothing.
