Overview

The round trip takes about 3,5 hours, with a guided tour at Grip. Grip has a long and stirring history so far back that the origin of the name is unknown. However we are certain that it was the abundance of fish in the sea surrounding these islands that lured the first inhabitants to Grip. Until 1964 Grip was the smallest municipality in Norway, but is today part of Kristiansund.

If you are looking for a fisherman's village you have to take this trip. A very small island where the houses are almost wall to wall. The seas are ruff and before the water barrier was in place all the inhabitants sheltered in the church...More

When you visit the Atlantic havsveien, take a trip through Kristiansund. The boat to the grip goes from the pier in Kristiansand Grip was the smallest municipality in Norway. The trip takes a little hour.

The view at Grip is amazing. The trip is lovely and an experience to remember. Unfortunately, the "captain" seems to take a few liberties with your email if you order online. You can expect spam emails, send as group email to other people that have...More

Amazing boat trip to a very nice little island in the Atlantic Ocean! You can visit a "stave church" at the island, you can fish, you can visit the café or just walk around.
