Boat trip to the reserve and dinner on the dock of Flødevigen research station

SIGN UP FOR FREE DINNER ON THE DOCKS! Update: The boat trip is now fully booked.
Wednesday is your day off, but we would like to invite delegates to join us for a boat trip to the Tvedestrand marine reserve. A large part of the telemetry studies originating in Arendal are carried out at this location, and Dr Even Moland will be your guide to the history of the reserve and the research that has been carried out. If the weather is nice, bring your swimsuits and take a dip in the refreshing water. Water temperatures in June 2018 were as high as 18 degrees, so no need to hesitate. The boats will bring you back to the docks of Flødevigen research station for a dinner and party. Later in the evening, buses will take you back to Arendal city centre and the conference hotel.

We have now opened the registration for this event. There is limited space on the boat, so we only have room for the first 75 delegates (or registered partners) who sign up. For the dinner we have room for all! Please send an email to with the label “Wednesday trip” and indicate whether you wish to sign up for “Boat trip + Dinner” or “Only Dinner”. Delegates must sign up before June 1st.
Departure: Approximately 10.00 from Arendal city centre
Arrival at Flødevigen: Approximately 18.00
