Hovden is an old fishing village in the municipality Bø on the seaward side of Vesterålen, where sky and sea meet in the horizon. In these contrasting environments you can experience coastal culture in an active fishing village, close to nature and forces of nature, a wild and beautiful landscape and an inclusive community that currently consists of thirteen locals. Hovden is enriched with three white sandy beaches, a wild and beautiful landscape with great hiking areas, mountains and the smell of sea air. The open landscape towards the big ocean gives fast and changing weather conditions and contributes to spectacular natural experiences and contrasts. It is a favorite place for shooting midnight sun, northern lights, landscapes, birds and everyday life in an active fishing village. This is the paradise for recreation inspiration, excitement, active or slow experiences. Hovden is an excellent starting point for cycling and day trips around Vesterålen.
In the summer of 2020 we have the pleasure of offering accommodation in glamping tents in Hovden. We take the best of the natural experience with camping and combining it with modern facilities. Here with us you can spend the night in a canvas tent, which is cozy furnished with double bed, duvet and pillow, carpets, electricity and a heater. The guests have access to toilet and shower. The four glamping tents are located next to a beautiful white sandy beach, behind the Storhavet kafé. At the cafe you can order any meal.
Accommodation in glamping tents will be an extra offer during the summer months and early autumn.
At Storhavet kafé, home-cooked dishes are served with local produce and products. We also offer accommodation in holiday home.
Please contact us for more information.
