About the apartments

The centre offers accommodation in apartments. We have eight apartments for rent, Each apartment has one double room, on single room and a sofa bed in the living room where two persons can sleep. The apartments are new and well equipped with kitchen, kitchen utensils, dish washer, TV, bath with shower and floor heating.

Unique location

The apartments have a unique location with an amazing view of the ocean. In the summertime you can watch birds, in the winter the rough sea is equally fascinating. An apartment at the centre is the perfect base camp for trips on land and at sea. The Runde harbor is only a very short walk away. In the harbor, you can join one of the daily boat tours around the island (summer months only) and get really close to the bird colonies. Paths for hiking are easily available on the island. One recommended hike is to the Runde lighthouse, where you can even stay the night (you would need to bring a key from the Norwegian Trekking Association).

Runde Environmental Centre offers apartments for rental year round.
