At the tail end of 2019, while crisp autumn was turning to biting winter, we hosted writer Olivia Squire and photographer Johan Lolos of Suitcase Magazine at Holmen. Suitcase is a bible for special experiences, and leafed through by those who are passionate about travel, sustainability, and exploring the world… and certainly a source we look to on the rare occasion we feel the desire to leave our isle at the tip of the Arctic Circle for other scenery… though we’re always drawn back here before long.

At the moment we are closed and hunkering down until the current pandemic blows over.

Living here on the edge of the world we’re both far-removed and uniquely vulnerable to such a situation and we deeply respect the Norwegian authorities’ recommendations to make Lofoten 100% safe again.

If you are unable to join us over the next few months we will honour your booking for 12 months from the date we re-open. We look forward to welcoming you at a brighter, less uncertain time.
