Overview

Norway's southernmost living fishing village. The island serves as a year-round residence for 11 people and has a beauty that attracts travelers from far and near. Ona Fyr is a 15 meter high landmark built in 1865, located on the island's highest point, Onakalven. It is possible to go inside the lighthouse, and from the top there is a fantastic view out over the sea and towards the mainland. You wil also find the exclusive Ona Chocolate here, a small summer café, two pottery workshops, a craft shop, a chapel and a long, white sandy beach. The island is a peaceful place where you can enjoy the silence and tranquility. On the island there are holiday homes located directly on the dock, and local supplyers offer a wide range of activities on site, including various forms of fishing.

To get there, take the ferry from Hollingen, 19 km west of Molde, to Aukra. Drive 10 km to Småge and leave the car here. The ferry from Småge stops at Orten, Finnøya and Sandøya before arriving at Ona. There are 4 daily ferries to this charming island.

Ona is a great destination for both summer and wintertrips, but the island is located next to the atlatic ocean, so it is important to bring warm and windproof clothes. If you travel outside the main season in the summer, you should also bring along food and drink, as the selection in the island's shop is somewhat limited this time of year.
