Sommaroy Island (Norway)

Sommaroy is a fishing community that covers the entire isle plus part of the neighboring Hillesoya Island and many smaller surrounding isles. It has a fishing fleet and fish processing facilities. Tourism is also important, so a hotel and rental cabins are available.

The main produce is herring - processed and packed in a modern processing plant, also freezing fish for international export.

The original settlement was on Hillesoya island, but was moved to Sommaroy in the early-20th-century. Hillesoya is popular for its beaches and plenty of warm and shallow coves.
