Røtnes is a beautiful bay on the stunning island of Engeløya, just opposite the Lofoten Islands. Here you can find pristine, white beaches, mountains and valleys and the sea is crystal clear with plenty of fish. In our homestead we have a generous size barn where we have an artist studio, workshops and the guest studio apartment that we offer up as Air B&B. A wooden rowing boat, a canoe, kayaks and bikes to rent in spring, summer and autumn.
“Cozy and special accommodation in a barn, bright and nice with large windows facing the countryside. Nice location for visiting Engeløya, a short way to Bøsanden. We were very lucky with the weather and got to experience the island from its best side - incredibly beautiful nature and beautiful beaches - we will be happy to come again. For those interested in history, Batterie Dietl is nice to bring, also located in a nice hiking area. We did not meet Eva since she was away, but the communication worked very well, and there were people on the farm who helped us at check-in. There are few restaurants with limited opening hours on the island, so it's a good idea to plan to cook for yourself. We had lunch one day at Elses Oase, nice place. Thanks for a nice stay!”
romantic and spacious farmhouse in serene surroundings in beautiful nature close to the sea and the mountains. In summer we have the midnight sun here and until the end of march the northern lights. The house is carefully and with much love restaured and equiped with a lot of antique furniture. The house is very remoted and you are on your own. Watch the sea eagles and even small whales in summer and go for easy hiking tours in the mountains.
“We spent 2,5 wonderful days at Kerstin's house - big, stylish, cosy and well-equiped with everything you might need. Kerstin was a very nice and helpfull hostess, always in touch with. Steigen is a fantastic place to explore and Kerstins house is a wonderful house to live in duringa visit to Steigen.”

“Bakkan Gård is a cozy and stylish blue farm with amazing nature and animals wandering around. We had two lovely nights with Rose-Mari and she provided everything we needed and more! We really appreciated the authentic Northern Norwegian hospitality with foods from the farm and local tips - and would definitely come back at a later time. We used Bakkan as a base while exploring Steigen; Engeløya, Brennviksanden, Hellnessund and other small towns on the way! Truly amazing. Must visit!”
