Overview

Ytre Hvaler National Park consists of muddy seabeds and rocky seabottoms with its rich underwater ecosystem containing corals and kelp forest. Land areas have a varied plant and animal life with many Red Listed species, coastal woodland shaped by the wind, and rocks worn smooth by waves and ice. Many areas are grazed to preserve rare plants, insects and birds, which depend upon open landscape. Management also means taking into account the traditional use of the area. People have used the area for thousands of years. Many of the prehistoric house sites at Hvaler may date back to the Late Bronze Age. They were probably used as seasonal dwellings By people who were hunting, trapping and fishing. Shacks bear Witness to the more recent fishing history at Hvaler. There are at least 50 submarine wrecks.
