Name: Manhaussen Island Resort
If you are looking for a completely unique wilderness retreat, hotels do not come more remote, and at some times of the year, desolate, than Manhaussen Island Resort.
Manshausen Island is situated in the Steigen Archipelago off the coast of Northern Norway. Positioned between bleak mountains and the Barents Sea this resort is both incredibly beautiful and, at times, stark and lonely. Manhaussen Island Resort is an adventure and exploration resort like no other. The area is home to the world´s largest population of Sea Eagles and the fishing is spectacular.
Three “Seacabins” (pictured above) stand along the old stone jetty with the fourth hut situated above the others on a natural ledge in the terrain. They offer awe-inspiring views over the sea and mountains. Floor to ceiling windows enable you to absorb these views from beds or cosy sofa seats. Each hut has two separate bedrooms with double beds and one alcove for children. All four huts have a specially designed bathroom and kitchen in corian and architecturally designed by Snorre Stinessen. Breakfast lunch and dinner are provided in the main house depending on the time of year.
Why visit? Beyond the fishing there is hiking, cave exploring, diving, bird watching, skiing or you can just sit back and relax in your cabin taking the odd dip in the sea (which is only advisable in the summer!) Come here to experience the wilderness in its true glory. There is no place in the world quite like Manhaussen Island Resort.
