Hankø Yacht Club is located on the small island Hankø.

Hankø Yacht Club is located on the small island Hankø. There is no cars on the island, and the only way to get to the island is by ferry or boat.

How to get there:

Using GPS navigators or Internet map services
When using an electronic routing tool (such as a GPS or an internet map service) the address “Vikaneveien 405, Gressvik” will give the position of the parking lot at Vikane, just by the berth for the Hankø ferry.

Bus from Oslo Airport Gardermoen to Hankø
The Airport Express Coach runs from Oslo Airport Gardermoen to Fredrikstad on an hourly basis on week-days. The week-end schedule is slightly less frequent. Look for the buses and line “F11 Fredrikstad”. The trip from the airport takes just over two hours. The buses are comfortable and almost always exactly on schedule. The price is from NOK 310,- each person/ one way – VISA, MasterCard, AmEx and Diners accepted. Ask the bus driver if he can arrange a taxi from Skåra, which is just 10 minutes drive from Vikane and Hankø. Fredrikstad Taxi has phone 02600 (available from Norway only).

Ferry to Hankø
The little ferry HANKØSUND takes you across Hankøsundet (“the Hankø sound”) from the mainland to Hankø. The ferry berth on the mainland is located at Furuøy, just outside the main parking lot at Vikane. On Hankø, the ferry stops at one berth at Hankø Yacht Club and one berth just outside Seilerkroa (“The Sailor’s Tavern”).

Rib service:
There will also be Ribs available for transporting sailors from main land to Hankø.
