Manshausen is 55 acres of the island just across the fjord from Lofoten. In the old days, the island was a part of a trading post that officially opened in 1690. Its long history is mainly due to the protected harbor and good fishing grounds in the Vestfjord area. The main house and the stone piers are remains from that historical era. The nature around Manshausen is stunning with protected islands, islets, beaches, high mountains, midnight sun in the summer, and northern light in the winter. Here you can do activities like kayaking, diving, climbing, trekking, caving, sailing, fishing, and so much more.
