Overview
Details

Stay in an idyllic and fascinating environment at Norway’s northernmost trading post which is still in operation. The views are impressive at Havnnes Handelssted, which is situated at the southern tip of the island of Uløya.

Stay in a historic house at the trading post or in the nearby settlement.

Havnnes, which is described as one of the most beautifully situated trading posts in Norway, was awarded the prestigious St Olav’s rose in 2014. The St Olav’s rose, which is the hallmark of “cultural experiences that are out of the ordinary, is awarded by the Norwegian Heritage Foundation.

Archaeological findings from the Stone Age demonstrate there has been human settlement in the area for more than 6,000 years, while rock art on the western side of the island is probably between 5,000 and 7,000 years old. This rock art site features 8-10 painted figures.

You can stay in a historic house in the settlement at the trading post where most of the buildings date from the 19th century and are listed buildings. Alternatively, you can stay in one of the three holiday houses in the village.

All our houses maintain a high standard and are fully equipped.

Brief details about the holiday houses:

“Mary’s house”:
This house sleeps six guests plus two extra beds and is equipped with oven, fridge, dish washer, wood-fired stove, electric kettle, coffee maker, microwave, washing machine and clothes drier. This is a comfortable holiday with everything on one floor. The living rooms are spacious and the large windows in the lounge offer magnificent views of the trading post, the Lyngen Alps and the mountains on the mainland. The house is about 500 m from the old settlement / marina.

“Per Arne’s house”:

“The Waagen house”:

“The bank”:
This house sleeps six guests and is equipped with oven, fridge, dish washer, wood-fired stove, electric kettle, coffee maker and microwave. The house is in the middle of the old settlement and was the island’s former savings bank. The house now has an exclusive standard and is ideal for those wanting that little extra.

Messa:
This building consists of two apartments, which each sleep five guests. They are equipped with oven, fridge, dish washer, electric kettle, coffee maker and microwave. These refurbished apartments are situated in the old settlement at Havnnes.

Borgerstua (Civic house):

All the houses have access to a barbecue area.

It is possible to rent bicycles or snowshoes to explore the area. There is a small shop where guests can buy groceries, while the on-site museum is well worth visiting. If you wish to do other activities, we can help to arrange this.
