Runde Environmental Centre is an international research station, an exhibition space, and a meeting place for seminars and conferences. The centre offers accommodation in modern apartments with an amazing view of the ocean.
Runde is a small island in Herøy in the south-west of Møre og Romsdal county. The island has the southern most seabird colonies in Norway with large populations of Atlantic puffin, Black-legged kittiwake, Common Shag, Northern Gannet and Northern fulmar.
The island is also known for the gold and silver treasure that was found at Kvalneset in 1972. The treasure was the cargo of the ship Akerendam from the Netherland, shipwrecked during its maiden voyage outside Runde in 1725. Coins and other artifacts from the ship can be seen in the exhibition at the Runde Environmental Centre.
The Runde harbour is only a very short walk away. In the harbour you can join one of the daily boat tours around the island (summer months only) and get really close to the bird colonies. Paths for hiking are easily availble on the island. One recommended hike is to the Runde lighthouse, where you can even stay the night (you would need to bring a key from the Norwegian Trekking Association).
Free parking and internet.
