The apartment is close located to the starting point of  Dronningruta (a 6-8 hour day trek). The trail is named after her Majesty Queen Sonja, who hiked the route in 1994. An alternative is a mountain hike to Nyken, “a little trip with a big view”. The mountain is right behind Nyken Resort


The fishing village of  Nyksund itself is also  a great experience. Nyksund is an old fishing village in Øksnes municipality. The proximity to the fishing grounds off the shores of Vesterålen made the place attractive as a fishing village. The area was  depopulated around 1970, but before it was abondoned, Nyksund hade five fish receiving stations, one fillet factory, two shops, a post office, a shipping office, a bakery, a blacksmith`s , a school and a chapel.

Eventually the village became popular for visiting artits, tourists and photographers. The films “after Rubicon” and “Insomnia” werw partly filmed in Nyksund

If you are intrested in an RIB outing, we can help you organize it.
