Enjoy a day at the beach

Explore by boat 

The schooner Solrik and old fishing vessel Østerøy are both excellent ways to explore Grimstad's skerries.
Solrik will take you on a beautiful round-trip amongst islands and islets on given dates this summer, the round trip takes 2 hours. 
Østerøy runs two scheduled trips Wednesday, Friday and Sundays in July, and offers you the opportunity to hop off on one of the island and then be picked up a few hours later. 

If you prefer to explore the skerries on your own, it is possible to hire a basic 15-foot open boat, with an 8hp outboard motor, from Grimstad Tourist Office during the summer season. 

Grimstad also has a taxi boat that can be rented for several exciting assignments in the archipelago.


Lighthouse holiday 

Enjoy an experience of a lifetime at Homborsund Lighthouse. Open for overnight stays throughout the summer season. The rest of the year, you can rent the entire lighthouse and bring your family or friends along on a salty adventure. Boat transport required.
