Port of Herdla
Herdla is a scenic jewel, just a 45-minute drive from the centre of Bergen. The island is 2 km2 in area and lies at the point where the Fedjefjord divides into the Hjeltefjord (to the west of Askøy) and the Herdlafjord (to the east of Askøy). The name Herdla is old Norse and probably means "the separated one". The nature reserve on Herdla was established in 1985 and is partly protected. 208 different species of bird have been registered here. There is good fishing and the holiday centre is well placed for angling from the shore or from a boat. Sea-angling trips can be arranged on a hired boat.
Herdla is special in many ways with distinctive natural features compared with the rest of the West Norwegian coast. Herdla is young from a geological point of view. At the end of the last ice age (approx. 10,000 years ago) the inland ice extended all the way to where Herdla is situated today. A roaring river of melting water brought enormous amounts of gravel and sand to what eventually became the characteristic flatland of Herdla as we know it.
