Coming to Røvær – from nature to culture


The only way to get to Røvær is by sea, being an island of course. As you approach it seems to be just wild rocks washed by the surf, and you wonder where you can find an inlet. But the map shows there are three. The islands are described in two categories – nature space and culture space. The outer parts are wild nature, rocks washed black by the sea and further up, grass, heather and a rich variety of bushes. This creates protection for the middle parts where people have found a living and where they have built their community. The narrow inlets are perfect seaways in and out of this little community, which now consists of around 85 people. This summer, two new families are moving out here to live and work.
