Off the coast of Northern Norway is a modern adventure and exploration resort - your sea cabin awaits!
Manshausen is a world in its own; only 55 acres, situated in the middle of the Grøtøya strait and only 500 meters from the small village Nordskot. With its well-protected harbour, Manshausen was once a busy part of the old trading post Grøtøy, which was established in 1698. Fish is still important, but kayaking, diving, cycling, climbing and summer and winter hiking has now taken over as the most popular activities. Steigen is a unique destination for these activities, with hundreds of small islands, white sandy beaches, spectacular mountains, and to the north the Loftoten islands act as a protective wall.
At this spectacular setting you’ll find seven sea cabins dotted around, some right by the water's edge and others perched above with beautiful views overlooking the sea and mountains.
Each cabin is glazed on three sides, and through the large glass windows you can watch the changing sea and sky from your bed or the comfortable chairs. Each cabin has two separate bedrooms with double beds and one alcove for children. All four huts have a specially designed bathroom and kitchen in corian. Architect Snorre Stinessen is the designer of the huts.
Lunch and dinner of local produce is available on request.
The surrounding area, both on land and on the bigger islands nearby offers great hikes for all levels and difficulties. Trips range from easy strolls on the islands Måløya and Grøtøya to spectacular and breath-taking traverses, and all within the immediate vicinity of Manshausen. There are also opportunities to fish and dive in the clear water that surrounds you, or head underground to the intriguing ‘troll cave’. If you want to ski the best season for ski trips is March to April.
