This holiday cottage sits right on the water front by the small town of Sandsletta, on the west side of the island Austvågøya. The landscape is open and sunny and gives a panoramic view of the sea and the mountains. Enjoy sunsets from the terrace. It's especially delightful to sit on the rocks outside the cottage and listen to the waves hitting the beach. During bright spring and summer nights, the landscape will be colored red by the midnight sun. The shallow bay below the house has a narrow stray where the sea water enters. You can catch both salmon and trout in this bay. A motor boat is included and is tied up right by the house. The area has several fishing lakes. The flat landscape is perfect for biking and hiking. 10 km to the foodstore in the fishing village Laukvik. Here you may also walk along the great pier protecting the harbor from stormy weather, and enjoy the fresh and salty sea air from the open ocean.

The house is a perfect starting point for driving around Lofoten. 25 km to Svolvær, the centre of Lofoten with its shops, restaurants and airport. 30 km to Kabelvåg, where you can have a close up experience with live fish at the town's aquarium.

If you have booked a holiday home in Norway, you may need to book a ferry crossing. Please remember to order your tickets well in advance. Further information concerning ferry connections, please see VisitNorway.
Many Norwegian holiday homes are located on small islands, but regardless of where a house is located, the easiest way to reach the holiday home will often be to go by the ferry. Consequently it is a good idea to check the various ferry possibilities. On VisitNorway you will find a list of all the ferries in Norway.
In some cities such as Oslo and Bergen a toll fee must be paid when entering/leaving the city. There are also many rather small roads privately administrated in Norway. Also here you will have to pay.
If you wish to be updated on the road and traffic situation, please check on VisitNorway.
