This marine park is the most popular attraction in town. It is one of the largest saltwater aquariums in Northern Europe. With 4000 sq metres of exhibition space, it is able to house 11 large aquariums, 2 open touch pools and 2 activity pools, and a few minor aquariums. Between them, they cover practically all of Norway’s important marine life.

Highlights are:

The Great Atlantic Tank: Cod, halibut, conger and salmon.

Selbukta: The world’s largest seal exhibit, outdoors.

It’s a 40 minute walk from the town center. Very manageable, especially considering the charming scenery of woods, monuments, the sea and the hiking paths. It’s a nice walk. Nearby, there’s also a beach where you can go swimming or scuba diving.
