Just off the seafront, near the westernmost point on Norway's mainland, Vardetangen, lies Kilstraumen Brygge. The building was renovated and expanded in 2016, with more modern facilities.

Its history can be traced back to 1610 when the first inn started. It received an alcohol serving license from King Christian quarter in Copenhagen. In the 400 years that followed, it has been a guesthouse and pub. Later, it was a restaurant, and a shop selling oil and gasoline. Kilstraumen also has a history as a legislative assembly. In addition, the area itself has a rich and dramatic history.

Today we create good experiences for both tourists and local guests. Here you can enjoy local food after exploring activities in the surrounding area.


New this year is a snow boat ride to Skjærgårdsfisk Visitor Centre at Marøy in Radøy. Together with the Skjærgårdsfisk Visitor Centre, we have a strong desire to pass on and share the tradition and knowledge of the aquaculture industry. On this tour you will see how today's salmon farming goes into practice. The company you will visit has produced salmon to an international market for over 60 years.


At Kilstraumen Brygge we are committed to the good times. We have two great restaurants with a nice pub next to the dining room. Here you can enjoy delicious food, good service, and not least, the beautiful view. We base our menu heavily on seafood and local produce.


Kilstraumen Brygge's Sunday buffet is open every Sunday year-round. How about combining a Sunday trip to Vardetangen with our Sunday buffet?


Naustet is our main restaurant. Here we have capacity for about 120 people with lovely outdoor dining on the pier. The newly refurbished restaurant, Salongen, has a capacity of 100 people. We also offer catering and takeaway.


Kilstraumen Brygge facilities are suitable for both weekend stays and holidays. Our 120 beds are distributed among sea cabins, cabins and apartments. In addition, we have several rooms in the Inn. Enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and waves right outside your window, whether you're alone, with your partner, or the whole family.
