Visit a small island in the middle of the sea
- Destination: Ytre Hvaler
- Season: June–April
Tisler is a small island in Ytre Hvaler National Park. Up until 1939 people lived on the island, but now it is just a beautiful island in the midst of the ocean that is well worth a visit.
The Tisler Island is characterized by bare rock and heath, but in sheltered areas, there is rich and varied fauna. The island has two good harbors; Kilen to the west and Sommerstø to the east.
You can order a boat taxi by Innovasjon Hvaler, phone +47 91 37 98 77. Make sure you order the taxi well in advance.
The Tisler island is not very large so spend your day just walking around the island. On the northeast side of the island, a seawall is built at a smaller inlet called Losholmen. This leads to two beautiful sandy beaches, one on each side of the pier.
Tisler is an important nesting area for seabirds, and parts of the main island and surrounding islands are banned for visitors from 15 April to 15 July.
