Cabin at the Svartisen glacier
Stay in Storhytta or Lillehytta at the foot of Svartisen-glacier on the Kystriksvei / Meløy side (Engabreen). Experience the magic after the last boat has passed and you are alone with the elements. Must be experienced!
Cabins of good standard
The cabins have good standard and all the necessary equipment. The large cabin consists of living room, kitchenette, bathroom and 5 beds in 3 rooms. Lillehytta consists of living room, kitchenette, bathroom and 1 bedroom with bunk bed, the bottom one is double. There are a total of 3 beds. You get the keys to the cabin at "Brestua", which is a service building and restaurant close by.
Boat over to Svartisen
To get to the cabins, you have to take the boat over Holandsfjorden. It runs regularly over the Holandsfjord from late May to early September. The boat departs from FV17 just south of (former) Meløy tourist office.
Dining and facilities
There are no grocery-shop in the area, and the cabins are based on self-catering. Therefore, you must bring what you need. Linen and cleaning can be booked.
Restaurant / Dinner: In the summer season, the restaurant "Brestua" is open- they serve breakfast and both lunch and dinner. Be aware of the changing opening hours during the year, see the Facebook page for updated info.
