Visit Givær. A visit to the solitary island of Givær is truly something special. From every point of the island you have a tremendous view of the ocean to the west, the mainland and other isles to the east.
Explore on foot. The only way to explore the island is on foot. That is a short walk. The island is only about half mile long so everywhere on it is easy reachable. The total length of the `main street` is about 250 m. The total area of the main island is only 0.2 square-miles. The settlement of Givær consists of only 25 small houses.

Givær is is one of the best places in Scandinavia for visitors to experience daily life on a remote island along the coast of Northern Norway. Once you leave the local express boat, you will notice the absence of traffic, people and commerce. There are no roads here, no shops, no cars.
Off the beaten track: Givær has never been a big tourist attraction. The people of Givær want to keep it that way. Small groups will always get a warm welcome. Givær is a kind of a northern hidden secret. Most people in Bodø have heard about Givær, just a minority have ever been there.
