Herdla is an island on the northern tip of Askøy, which lies just west of Bergen. The 1.6 square-kilometer island has the richest birdlife area in Hordaland with 224 registered bird species until 2003. The distinctive and productive sea and wetland area of Herdla led to an area of 1.3 square-kilometer being conserved in 1985, and is part of the 3.1 square kilometers nature reserve that encompasses the Herdlevalen and its beaches. The nature reserve helps to make Herdla an important destination.
A great introduction to the war story on the trip? Herdla was a vital place during World War II, and today there are old torpedo batteries that are found a short walk from the pier. During WWII, the German occupying power built both the airport and the fortress at Herdla that we will guide you through.
HERDLA IS A POPULAR TRAVEL OBJECTIVE WITH MANY HISTORICAL MEMORIALS, NATURAL ATTRACTIONS AND A SELECTION OF ACTIVITIES.
