Extra information


  • The Seaweed safaris and outdoor cooking workshops can only take place during low tide, so the starting time depends on the tidal cycle. Look on the calendar for the Seaweed activities that we have planned 


  • Allergy information: seaweeds can contain parts of shellfish. The products that we work with can contain nuts or traces of nuts. Therefore we do not advice those with a severe allergy to participate in our outdoor cooking workshop


  • We walk along an exposed and rocky shoreline which can be wet and slippery at times. Wear good outdoor shoes and dress according to the weather. You participate at your own risk! 


  • You can book all seaweed safari's by calling us, sending us an email or via the booking site of Runde Miljøsenter (https://www.booking.rundecentre.no/en). The outdoor cooking workshop can be booked until 48 hours in advance.


  • We also do tailor made programs round seaweed for groups at location in Runde or in the rest of Norway.
