Rorbu/Sea house |
Barøy lighthouse lies between Vestfjord and Ofotfjord in Narvik municipality, at the end of Efjord.
You will experience wild yet beautiful nature with great tour opportunities on both land and sea.
Barøy lighthouse has been the guiding light for the ore ships sailings towards Narvik since 1903.
The lighthouse is exotically located in the fjord, with no roads or houses nearby. Barøya offers
spectacular nature with a number of hiking opportunities, as it is characterized by the strong nature that it offers. You have the ability to fish and cook you own catch, whether you’d like to cook in the lighthouse’s kitchen, or on the fire grill by the boat house.
The exterior of the lighthouse has been fully renovated, while keeping its vintage style on the inside,
taken care of as good as possible.

You can also use your own boat, or perhaps rent a boat at Gunnars Fiskelykke. Everything
should be agreed on with Gunnar in advance.
There are two possible starting points to reach the lighthouse, either from Lødningen (Lødingen municipality), or from Skarstad in Efjord (Narvik municipality).
Upon arrival to Barøy lighthouse, there will be given careful training which is necessary to have a safe and comfortable stay. The lighthouse is used just as any other cabin, you move in and make yourself feel at home. You clean and wash on your way out. You can bring with you your own bedding set/ sleeping bag, to save the host the money and energy in order to arrange it.
The lighthouse is exposed to different weather conditions, and those who decide to spend the night there must be prepared for bad weather conditions that might occur in short time, which means that one may get stuck in the lighthouse if the weather conditions are extreme.
