Norwegian Scenic Route Helgelandskysten – the best way north

 

Your adventure starts on the little island of Støtt, located just over 1 hour by boat outside of Bodø. If you travel from south we advise you to follow the Scenic Route Helgelandskysten, the longest Scenic Route in Norway.

 

The Helgeland coast is characterized by a unique archipelago with more than 14,000 islands and islets. Long fjord arms break up the coastline and at the inner end of the fjords there are industrial villages that grew up around hydropower production plants.

 

You can choose to either bring your car over to Støtt by taking the ferry from Ørnes, or park your car in Bodø and take the express boat directly to the hotel. Tickets and routes for the boats can be found here.

STØTT – Top of Helgeland

 

The island of Støtt is situated right by the shipping lane in the far north of Helgeland. Our idyllic archipelago enjoys a panorama that spans from the jagged peaks of the Lofoten Islands in the north to the legendary and majestic Helgeland mountains of in the south.

 

In 1897, Johan Sørensen bought Støtt and operated a trading post here, buying the catch from local fishermen, produced cod liver oil and ran the busy country store. Today, the 4th and 5th generation of proprietors are continuing to enhance and develop the Støtt Old Trading Post, which has been carefully restored and upgraded with modern amenities.

 

In Restaurant Gammelbutikken you can dine in surroundings that are testimony to an ancient and thriving coastal culture. The chef proudly prepares dishes from the freshest catch and finest locally-sourced ingredients, served with wine carefully selected and paired with the dishes.

 

Støtt is known for offering hospitality with a personal touch, adventures in beautiful surroundings, accommodation in individually furnished rooms, and great dining based on the freshest seafood and best locally-sourced ingredients. Ever since people first settled on the island of Støtt, their livelihood has been based on respect for their natural surroundings. Harmony and sustainability are still the core values that are reflected in all key decisions here.

Part of the adventure is the journey

 

The travel from Støtt to Svinøya takes you trough a unique and spectacular landscape.

 

You can reach Svinøya Rorbuer from Bodø either by following E6, or start the journey by taking the ferry over til Moksnes and drive along the Scenic Route Lofoten up to Svinøya Rorbuer. Both routes take about 6 hours in total. You’ll find more information about the ferry here.

Svinøya Rorbuer

 

Once you reach Svinøya in Svolvær you spend the night in fisherman's cabins or fisherman's suites, while you explore and experience Lofoten. Here, you’ll find yourself in the middle of a living fishing village between fish reception, piers, fishing shelters and old and new local buildings.

 

Svinøya's renowned restaurant, Børsen Spiseri in Handelsbrygga from 1828 gives you a good local dining experiences. Here you can enjoy a delicious breakfast with local ingredients.

 

On Svinøya in Svolvær you have the open sea on one side and dramatic Lofoten mountains on the other. A small Lofoten in miniature in the town of Svolvær, with a short way to both plane, boat and bus.

 

In collaboration with local activity providers, the hotel can deliver world-class experiences and activities and memories for life. If you haven't seen the northern lights dance on a black night sky before, we reccommend a visit. The Northern Lights can often be seen from the 20th of August to mid-April.

 

The history of the island dates back 200 years, and Svinøya Rorbuer has received the Norwegian Cultural Heritage's quality label "Olavsrosa", for its efforts to safeguard and disseminate the important coastal cultural history of Lofoten.

 

Welcome to Svinøya, your base for good experiences in Lofoten!
