Fantastic surroundings at historic Fredriksten fortress


Villa Haugen is located on the island of Grøtøy in Steigen municipality. In its heyday, this villa was part of Gamle Grøtøy trading post – one of the largest and most powerful trading posts in the county of Nordland for four centuries. The villa is now a hotel, situated in breathtakingly beautiful landscapes and with views of the Lofoten islands, from Vesterålen in the north to Værøy and Røst in the south.  With such a unique location – on the outermost edges of the archipelago – the villa's guests have wonderfully clear, undisturbed and exclusive views of both the midnight sun and the Northern Lights.

The hotel focuses on “haute cuisine” using local produce prepared by the hotel's own chefs, who have experience from Michelin star restaurants. We can offer unique culinary delights, including an Arctic picnic out on the islands, culinary courses and seven-course meals (standard – but other arrangements can be provided on request). Villa Haugen is fully licensed.
