A small island with a big history

Get a glimpse of Grip´s unique past

The fishing village Grip

In the 16th century, Grip was the largest settlement in Nordmøre.

The island was first owned by the Catholic Church, then by the Danish/Norwegian king, then by a number of private owners, before Grip became its own municipality in 1909 - Norway's smallest, until Grip in 1964 became part of Kristiansund.

Grip has the world's northernmost original stave church. If you follow the tour with our guides, you will hear more about Grip today, and in earlier times.
