Manshausen Cabins

Situated in the middle of the Grøtøya strait, only 500 meters from the small village Nordskot lie these beautiful sea cabins.

A Norwegian dream

Experience unique accommodation at the Manshausen cabins over-hanging the Norwegian Sea. A joy for animal lovers, the 55-acre island where you will find Manshausen, is home to Europe’s largest colony of sea eagles, while the fjords are teeming with marine life. In summertime, the Midnight Sun creates a 24-hour surrounding of sun and light, while the winter experience affords unobstructed views of the Northern Lights through floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the Steigen Archipelago from the luxury and comfort of the cantilevered cabins. In the summer activities include snorkelling in the clear waters, rock climbing, hiking, a sailing adventure with optional fishing; and a winter adventure  may involve sea kayaking, snowshoe hikes, Northern Lights hunting from a hot tub, and the chance to explore the Resshola Cave.
Manshausen’s seven cabins — three of which jut out over the water – were conceived by polar explorer Børge Ousland, the first person to reach the North Pole in a solo and unsupported expedition. His  vision was to create a space for exploring the harmony between people and nature. The cabins are made of natural materials, creating both a modern home and a feeling of being in an organic accommodation that has grown out of the earth. Each cabin has two bedrooms, one with a double bed and a second with both a single and a trundle bed. The cabin includes a private bathroom and a kitchen designed in Corian. Meals are served in the main guest house.
