The first houses in Lofoten were built in the best locations. This is one of them! The house is very cosy, and the view is fantastic. Gimsøya is an unspoilt and quiet island, and excellent base for exploring Lofoten, both in summer and winter. The Hov area on Gimsøya is probably Lofoten's best place for watching both the midnight sun and the northern lights. Hov also has a long, white beach, an 18-hole golf course, a horse farm, and a small grocery store with café and gas station. Larger towns like Henningsvær and Svolvær are just a short drive away, and the house is "centrally" located excursions to Lofoten's best mountains and beaches, both further out towards Å, and further in past Svolvær. Although the house is quite small, there are many rooms and beds. Three double beds and two single beds sleep eight comfortably, and there are two additional beds (alcove and in the living room) if required. Back in the days, two families (14 people) lived in the house. The house has completely modernized in 2016-17 (almost rebuilt) with great attention to detail: All windows have been replaced, all outer walls have been isolated for warmth, new outside wood panels, new kitchen, new bathroom, the entire electrical system is replaced, all water pipes, new fireplace, new water filter and UV filter, all walls have been painted, etc. Some minor work still remains, but the house is now pretty much finished. Please contact us for availability or if you have any questions. For general information about Lofoten, please (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) "Visit Norway Lofoten".
Gimsøya is a quiet and unspoilt area, but still "central" for all kinds of sights and activities. There is so much to see and do! Start with Visit Norway's Lofoten overview. See "viktun dot no" for more suggestions, maps, videos, etc. Please contact us if you have questions.
