With its unique location between small islands, sandy beaches and high mountains, Manshausen is one of Norway’s best adventure playgrounds.

Here you can do everything from simple walks on the nearby islands, easy kayak paddling, deep sea fishing, dive in the Arctic waters, beachcomb along the sandy white beaches, enjoy the Northern Lights or the midnight sun from the hot tub, to more spectacular treks and activities.
