The space
This venerable old building from 1723 was the main building at the trade station, and guesthouse from 1798. The trade ceased in 1914, and then the building was used as a farmhouse. After exterior renovation in the 1990s and full interior renovation in 2013, the building was brought back to 1800s grandeur with wallpapers and color scheme of that time. The kitchen is however modern and well equipped, with up to 12 dining seats. Two bathrooms with toilet and an additional toilet are also in accordance with current standards. The house has four double and three single bedrooms, and in the largest room there is space for an extra guest. The house has thus capacity for 11 + 1 overnight guests. The living room has TV with Norwegian and German channels and blue-ray player. Wireless internet access is available. See also the picture gallery for presentation of the building and the rooms.

Where you’ll be

Harstad, Troms, Norway

Elgsnes is located in a beautiful area slightly outside the town Harstad, with mountains and fjords, green meadows and a rich bird- and wildlife. Andfjorden next to Elgsnes is well known as a particularly good halibut fjord, but also with plenty of good fishing spots for cod, coalfish, haddock, ling, tusk, redfish and most other fish species found in the north. In the sea there are also seals and whales, and eagles soar over with a keen eye for fish coming to the surface. On fine summer days you can enjoy your stay at the sandy beach in the horseshoe bay Vågen, and on quiet summer nights the colours of the midnight sun beams reflecting from the sea. Taking the trip up the mountain Elgen above the farm, you have a magnificent view in all directions, and if you are brave enough, the mountain is a good starting point for hang gliding. Elgsnes has little light pollution, and is therefore excellent for those who are hunting spectacular views of aurora borealis in the dark season.
