Hunting the Northern Lights at Støtt

Do you yearn for a truly magical winter adventure, and a respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life? Between September and May, Støtt invites you to see the amazing celestial display of the Northern Lights! In addition, you will surely appreciate the subtle winter colours of our beautiful island realm.

Welcome to an authentic trading post. The current, fourth-generation owners invite you to dine on fresh seafood caught in the local waters, and to hear the colourful stories of the hardy islanders who challenge the sea. During the winter, the old houses and wharf buildings on Støtt form a striking image against the background of the majestic snow-covered Meløy Alps on the mainland.

Suddenly in the darkness, you may see vast ribbons of green light moving, and at moments they feel close enough to touch. This is the dance of the Northern Lights! Many travellers have come to Northern Norway just to see this amazing performance on the starry vault!

Naturally we can give no guarantee of when this takes place. But on Støtt you can combine your “hunt” with a wide selection of outdoor adventures: explore the islands on foot, kayak the waters of the beautiful archipelago, or join a deep-sea fishing trip. The excitement of hooking one of the large cod that migrate from the Barents Sea to spawn in the waters during the winter is indescribable! In their very own museum, you can gain insights into the history and culture of the islanders.
