The Fredvanghytta cabin is located on the island of Moskenesøya in the
Lofoten Islands, and is one of the most unique cabins you will find in our
beautiful archipelago. In less than 40 minutes you can wallk up the
mountain to this Lofoten cabin and a fantastic view stretching from Vesterålen in the north, to Bodø in
the south, that can only be described as magical.
Our spacious mountain cabin is well situated as a starting point for
further walks in the mountains. In less than an hour you can walk to
well-known Kvalvika with its almost one kilometre long sandy beach
overlooking the Arctic Ocean and the far side of the Lofoten Islands. Or
you can walk to the summit of Ryten, where you will feel the excitement
build in your stomach as you approach the precipice that drops straight
down into the sea. There, 500 metres above sea level, and with a view you
can only dream of, you will have the perfect nature experience.
There are other easily accessible mountains in Fredvang, with trails that
are suitable for both young and old. The cabin’s location provides a good
starting point for these, too. You can walk to Fuglehuk further north on
Moskenesøya, or walk southwards and visit abandoned fishing hamlets like
Horseide and Hermannsdalen.
Lofoten will probably apply for UNESCO World Heritage status, and the far
side of Moskenesøya may also become a national park. Fredvanghytta cabin
is situated in this very area.
So take the opportunity to spend the night in our excellent cabin, in the
heart of the unique Lofoten countryside.
