An architect-designed holiday home that offers nature and serenity in combination with art and culture on its doorstep: the perfect getaway is waiting for you to discover it.
Are you dreaming of exploring the north of Norway, with its famous midnight sun, northern lights, whale safaris as well as small villages off the beaten track? Get to know Lofoten’s lesser-known neighbour, the Vesterålen islands, with Huset på Skåltofta as your perfect base. The hiking trail Dronningruta (The Queen’s Route) leads right past the house, taking you along pristine, white sandy beaches and over tall mountain peaks, offering an incredible view of the Atlantic Ocean. Only a stone’s throw away is the historical fishing village of Nyksund, today a thriving community with its own art gallery, cafe and restaurant.
Originally a fisherman’s house, the self-catered Huset på Skåltofta is the perfect home away from home, with capacity for up to seven guests across four bedrooms. It has recently been meticulously refurbished in a stylish yet functional design. Enjoy the outdoor patio on sunny days or stay cosy indoors in front of the open fireplace. Generous panoramic windows provide lots of natural light, as well as unparalleled views of the breathtaking landscape and wildlife.
Huset på Skåltofta is the perfect choice for a romantic getaway for two, or spacious enough to gather family and friends. It can also cater well for company off-sites, for those looking for an away-day with a difference.
