sustainability and reuse


Welcome to Halvard

Northern Lights park - Built by recycled materials

Just a 3-minutes drive or 20 minutes by foot from our hotel is Halvars place. He is a local inhabitant that has lived at Sommarøy all of his life and he is a unique individual full of knowledge and stories about life in the Arctic.
Halvar built the Northern lights park stone by stone with his own hands and all the materials he used is recycled from the old school building and other structures around Sommarøy.

The Northern Lights park provides shelter, heated premises and toilet facilities. The parks location is unique and the building is gently placed in the nature. With almost no light pollution, to ensure perfect photos of the Northern lights.

What an great experience. The aurora was amazing. This place is so perfect. A nice warm place to drink a cup of coffee or thee. The guide said that he would stay all night. Just for your aurora experience!
