Why we like it
- The cabins are located on the remote island of Manshausen, in the Steigen archipelago off the coast of Northern Norway.

- For those who like to keep active the surrounding area offers almost endless possibilities for hiking trips.
- Sit back and relax on the famous white sand of the private beach, at the north side of Manshausen.
- Laze the day away in the hot tub cooling off in the refreshing saltwater dam when needed.
About Manshausen Cabins
Situated off the Northern coast of Norway, the Manshausen resort conceived by Artic explorer and author Børge Ousland, provides a unique base for adventure and exploration. The resort consists of four stylish, solid timber cabins and a beautifully decorated main house, originally a farmhouse dating back to the 19th century.
Enjoy seasonal dishes inspired by local ingredients in the dining room, then travel upstairs to roam the spacious library for some after-dinner reading from Børge’s personal expedition collection. After dark, the cabins are perfectly positioned to witness the natural beauty of the Northern lights. Three of the cabins are partially cantilevered over Barent’s sea, creating privacy whilst offering incredible views of the water and the mountain range of Lofoten in the horizon. If you wish to explore the water first hand, the resort offers guided sea-kayaking tours. For the more adventurous, the red granite cliffs of Nordskot provide a great place for rock-climbing, just 500 metres away.
