Herføl, at the intersection between the Outer Oslo Fjord
and the open Sea (Skagerrak) you are lured by nature, the harsh and beautiful
pebble beaches, glossy rocks and boulders, several wedges, the country's
largest collection of spectacular potholes and a heather landscape reminiscent
of Norwegian high mountains. Herføl had a customs station and pilotage, and was
an important fishing center, but today, it has grown into a summer and tourist
center. There are only 14 permanent residents on the island, which makes up
only 3 square kilometers.
