Wheelchair accessible.

The toilet facility is open all year round. Emptying toilets from motorhomes and caravans is not permitted.

At Ureddplassen you find a nine-metre-wide terrace with a wide view over the fiord and towards the open sea, Fugløya, Lofotveggen (“the Lofoten Wall”).

As you move down towards the beach and sit down on one of the steps, you will find that the noise from the cars disappears. In the month of May you can often hear intense birdsong from the mountain side. Ureddplassen is a place for a short break, a nice rest and a picnic, or for long nights with midnight sun or northern lights. 

Ureddplassen is also a memorial place. A monument has been erected in memory of those who died when the submarine “Uredd” hit a mine in Fugløyfjorden during World War II. The submarine was on its way to Gildeskål with agents from the Linge Company on their way to Sulitjelma to carry out a sabotage operation against the power plant by the mines.
