Please be considerate

Abuzz with daily life, the national park is home to local communities, farmers, businesses, art and culture, all of which will add greatly to your visit. Please also be mindful of the landowners and local residents. Greet the people you meet and follow the park rules.

Because the birdlife is vulnerable to disturbances, please be considerate when you’re on or near the fjord. During the breeding season from 1 April to 15 July the islands and islets are off limits.
