Come and feel the calmness

The apartment is situated at idyllic Skåltofta,  within walking distance of the historic fishing village of Nyksund, and with breathtaking hiking areas right at our doorstep.

 Proximity to nature and the seasons

Nyken Resort,  located at the starting point of the Dronningruta, is in close proximity to a natural enviroment that dreams are made of. Wonders range from magic moments under the midnight sun, calm oceans waters as far as the eye  can see, to gales and rough weather. Winter offers fantastic light during day, evening and night. The northen lights dance playfully across clear skies. We  can`t guarantee that Aurora Borealis will be visible during your visit, but when she appears, she is a beautiful sight. A mountain trek in the moonlight and with a headlamp restores your energy.

This air B and B must have the best kitted out kitchen of all time! If you want to cook while you are here then this is the place to do it! It has incredible views, is beautifully designed and Jan was a very friendly host. Only thing is that it is about 20 minutes outside of Myre but that wasn’t a problem for us as we had a car. Definitely recommend staying here!

It was just wow! The place feels huge, is equipped with everything one could think of and is in a perfect condition. Jan Helge was a great host. All together we had a fantastic time there. I can just affirm the former reviews.

How do you get to Skåltofta?

Skåltofta is located in Nyksund, the municipality of Øksnes. The closest village is Myre, with Sortland being the nearest city (located 5 miles away). From Sortland, follow road 820 all the way until the crossroad by Myre. From there on there will be road signs leading you to Nyksund. Nyken Resort is located right before you enter “fiskeværet”.

Do I have to bring anything?

How do I check in?

You will be able to check in any day after 3 pm. During that time there will be people available to deliver your keys. Other check-in opportunities is discussed through e-mail or phone.

What is there to do in the area?

The nearby area has a lot to offer in terms of beautiful nature. There are both long and short trails you can walk if you want to explore.

The apartment is closely located to the starting point of The Queen’s Route (an 6-8 hour day trek). The hike is named after Her Majesty Queen Sonja who walked the route in 1994.

Another alternative is the hike to Nyken “a small trip with a big view”. The hill is located right behind Nyken Resort.

“Fiskeværet” in Nyksund is also a great experience. Nyksund is an old fishing community in Øksnes. It was the closeness to the fishing grounds outside of Vesterålen that made it such an attractive fishing village. The area was abandoned around 1970, but before people left, Nyksund had 5 fishlandings, 1 filet factory, 2 stores, a post office, expedition, bakery, blacksmith, school and church.

After a while the place became fairly popular for traveling artists, tourists and photographers. The movies “After Rubicon” and “Insomnia” is partly filmed in Nyksund.

If you should wish to take a RIB-trip we can help you organize it.
