Overview
Givær is a remote island located 50 km north of the Arctic Circle and 28 km west of Bodø. Givær is Bodø’s westernmost outpost and one of Nordland’s smallest inhabited islands (local population 15). Givær is truly a hidden gem along the Arctic coast of Northern Norway. Only a few visitors find their way to this island and its fascinating history. Although tiny, the island’s hospitality and welcome are legendary. Givær is one of the best places in Scandinavia for visitors to experience daily life on a truly remote and traditional island. As soon as you step off the local express boat, you will notice the absence of traffic, people and commerce. There are no roads, no shops and no cars. Givær has never been a big tourist attraction and the locals want to keep it that way. Small groups will always receive a warm welcome.

I had a wonderful day visiting this very small island. On arrival I had mixed feelings - the weather was cold and blustery. However my hostess welcomed me warmly - giving me quality time. She shared stories of the long history of the island, details of the fishing and farming

Response from ivarsandland, Daglig leder at Givaer Island, Day Trip to the Westernmost Outpost in Bodo, Northern Norway
Responded May 20, 2019
Thank you Tim! You were the first visitor to the tiny island of Givær this season. Even if you were a solo traveller we wanted to let you explore this, our favorite island. I liked you way of travelling: planning everything on your own rather than join a large group, it is really not that hard to find out things. I do hope you had a nice experience joining the sailing trip the first day as well?
