The picturesque old trading post of Støtt offers some of Helgeland’s most beautiful and unique holiday experiences. Many adventures await you here, and you can enjoy charming quarters and great dining in historic buildings steeped in the island’s ancient coastal heritage.
From your holiday base on the island of Støtt, you can experience a wealth of exciting activities year round. You can explore the nearby waters by kayak or a sturdy RIB sea raft, or join a deep-sea fishing trip led by an experienced skipper. Other activities include guided glacier trips to Svartisen, summit hikes to Rødøyløva, and guided kayak excursions.
Perhaps you would prefer a tranquil family holiday? Perhaps bring the kids to one of our beautiful sandy beaches, or take a scenic bike ride under the midnight sun, either with the entire family or just you and your partner.
Dine and dream with a smile
Gammelbutikken Restaurant at Støtt, situated in a general store dating from 1878, proudly shows the heritage of the coastal culture. In this charming ambience, or at an outdoor table on the quay, you can dine on amazing seafood prepared from the local catch. A selection of excellent wines are available, to enhance a memorable meal. This is the good life!
Guests at the old trading post have several overnight options. Rorbua and Stabburet, as well as the carefully restored Bakeriet (the old bakery), provide charming and luxurious accommodations that convey a sense of nostalgia as well as tranquillity. Each room is individually furnished with antique furniture, chandeliers and lace curtains.
Near the old trading post and charming fishing village you will find sheltered coves, chalk-white sandy beaches, islets and skerries, and impressive birdlife. Bike and kayak rental is available to enable your explorations. Another option is to join a guided kayak trip – and naturally we offer kayaking courses. If you prefer, you can rent a larger boat, or join an excursion on a fishing smack skippered by an experienced fisherman. Being out on the water under the late-night glow of the midsummer sun is a magical experience!
Guest harbour and service offerings
We have a guest harbour for visitors who arrive in their own boat. By the sheltered dock are showers and toilets, and petrol pumps for refuelling. The island’s grocery store allows you to restock your supplies. During the summer, you will find a tempting selection of fresh-baked goods, as well as craft beers and local food products.
