Wild and beautiful! A Rugged Lighthouse on rocky island with helicopter access only.
Svinoey is a unique environment in of the most distinctive and unusual locations in the world. With rugged beauty and solitude, it is for those who want to experience something really exclusive. Ideal for that special conference, meeting or a gathering of a group of friends.
Svinoey does not feature your "normal" hotel facilities. It is a "house/home" environment but with a full-time staff person providing for your needs. The location makes Svinoy lighthouse one of the most extreme experiences that you can find. The (now automated) lighthouse was manned for 100 years, from 1905 to 2005, and has been a meterological observation since 1955. The weather data from Svinoey lighthouse is still vital for the overall meterological data image.
The raw power and beauty of nature is seldom closer at hand. Svinoey lighthouse is one of the few places in the world where sunsets and hurricanes are equally fascinating.
Svinoey can accommodate up to 11 persons (4 double rooms plus 3 single rooms). You have the entire 900 metre long island to yourself, staying in the house which once was utilised by the lighthouse keepers.
Pricing is entirely based upon your requirements, and includes helicopter transport and a permanent staff member/cook who will accompany you.
It is located 12 nautical miles off the Norwegian coast in the open ocean in an area renown locally for some of the wildest weather that Norway can offer.
The island is reachable by boat from the sea, but due to the power and volatility of the waves, for safety reasons the management provide access by helicopter only.
The lighthouse buildings are managed by 62° NORD who can offer overnight accommodation on Svinoey island for groups wanting to experience the unique atmosphere, whether socially or for business groups. The island is the ideal retreat to "get-away-from-it-all" to focus the mind, yet not far from the attractive town of Aalesund.
