NATURAL AND CULTURAL HISTORY
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.
THRILLS AND OUTDOOR RECREATION
Ytre Hvaler offers many opportunities for outdoor recreation and experiencing a rich and varied coastal landscape. The area attracts visitors all the year round for swimming, boatingand fishing, and offer thrilling underwater experiences.
If you want to stay overnight, Storesand and the islands of Akerøya have many fine spots for camping, and several Cabins are available for renting. Travelling by boat offers you many islands to choose between. Kayaking is an excellent way of exploring the park. Why not take a fishing rod with you?
PURPOSE OF THE PROTECTION
The Ytre Hvaler National Park was set up to preserve a distinctive, large and relatively pristine area in southeast Norway with complete ecosystems on land and in the sea. Coral reefs, varied hard- and soft-bottom communities, stretches with currents and varying depths of water are important elements in the marine natural history.

William is a warm and happy person with his heart in the loving waves of the ocean:) He had many tips for exploring the area of Halden where his cozy little shop is located. It's a good experience for people that want to know a bit about sailing, William has great experience about the sea and is gladly teaching you a few knots:) You will have everything you need just a few minutes walk from the boat. Bars, restaurants, grocery store etc Enjoy your stay at boat!

Best place we stayed on our five week Europe trip. We ended up booking two extra days. Meet us at the train station. Made us coffee and tea. Showed us where stuff in town was. William was just a fantastic host and could not have asked for a better place to stay while we were in Norway.

Et opphold hos William er ikke før de sarte. William er en vert som bryr seg om sine gjester. For de som er ute etter å sove lenge og er av den tilbaketrukne typen, så er nok ikke et opphold hos William det man ser etter. Er man derimot ute etter et godt vertskap med god humor og flotte historier, så er William mist i blinken. Takk for et minnerikt opphold William

William och hans gulliga hund tog emot oss på kajen och visade oss båten och gästhamnens faciliteter. Vi insåg då att vi gjort ett misstag när vi bokade båten i tron att det var ett eget boende. Döm om vår förvåning när vi insåg att William också skulle sova där! När vi förklarade för William att vi kommit dit med helt andra förväntningar var han förstående och gick med på att ändra vistelsens längd. William var generös och fanns hela tiden tillgänglig om vi hade några frågor. Vad som inte framgår i beskrivningen är att det tar några minuter att gå från båtens kajplats till gästhamnens dusch/toalett/tvättstuga. En annan sak som inte framgår i beskrivningen är säkerheten. Bryggan är öppen för vem som helst att beträda, båten låses inte och det fanns ingenstans att tryggt förvara sina värdesaker. När vi bodde på båten fungerade inte spolningsanordningen på toaletten ombord, utan man fick spola med vatten från handfatet. Kojerna var bekväma och köket verkade funktionellt för sin storlek. Det här var inte rätt boende för oss, men om man är ett par eller ett kompisgäng som är intresserade av att utforska hamnlivet i Halden och vattnen däromkring kan Williams båt vara ett prisvärt alternativ!
