  The Detail...

Manshausen is a world in its own; only 55 acres, situated in the middle of the Grtya 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 Grty, 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 youll find three sea cabins along the old stone jetty, with the fourth cabin situated above the others on a natural ledge in the terrain, with a beautiful view 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.

Breakfast is served in the main house, and from January to November lunch and dinner is also on offer, with a menu of mainly local produce such as seafood, cod, halibut, reindeer, lamb or elk. They also serve a good vegetarian choice too. If you are travelling in a group they can arrange catering throughout the year.

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 Mlya and Grtya 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 alpine ski trips is March to April.
