About us
Støtt Old Trading Post and its island community are situated right in the shipping lane, at the northern end of the Helgeland coast, 32 nautical miles south of Bodø. Taxation figures from the 1600s indicate prosperous fisheries; a trading post was established early in the 1800s. With as many as a thousand fishermen in the harbour at any one time, there was great demand for fresh water, bread and other supplies. The fishermen would often wait in the sheltered harbour for good weather before crossing the open seas to the Lofoten Islands and the legendary winter cod fisheries in the surrounding waters.

Our concept

As your hosts at Støtt Brygge, we have a strong focus on your holiday experience. We take great delight in introducing you to the island community, and in making sure you have rewarding adventures in our archipelago. Everyone here has a keen appreciation of the many moods of the surrounding sea, and its bounty. At the heart of what we offer is the restored and well-maintained Old Trading Post. The novels of Nobel Prize-winning author Knut Hamsun give a credible description of the trading post and the lively fisheries of the past – this heritage and coastal culture is still very much alive.

Your stay at Støtt Brygge will include details such as genuine down duvets, beautiful Italian beds, Biedermeier and Rococo furniture, candlesticks and chandeliers, and authentic old fishing gear. Traditional liquor is served in our bar – we have even preserved the rigging from a sloop that dates back to the 1870s.

A good holiday includes great dining. Støtt Brygge is renowned for serving seafood dishes of generous portions, made from the fresh local catch. The wines we serve are well-paired with these dishes. And we are confident that you yourself will provide the most important ingredients of a fine evening: good conversation, shared stories from your day’s adventures, and satisfied laughter.

Enjoy!

What makes Støtt unique?

Støtt Brygge offers comfortable accommodation and great dining – and so much more. Here you are close to the ever-changing sea, the island wilderness, and the friendly islanders. As you can walk the island, you may find yourself enjoying rewarding chats with those who live here; they exemplify the unique openness and hospitality of rural Northern Norway. An amazing tranquillity settles in as you explore Støtt – where the only sounds are of sea birds and the waves washing ashore, and the sea air is relaxing as well as invigorating.

Støtt actually consists of several islands and islets, some of which are part of a nature reserve with rich birdlife and unusual flora.

One of the best ways to explore Støtt is by kayak; from the sea you always get a different perspective. If you prefer a faster pace, join a RIB boat excursion or go on a deep-sea fishing trip. For an exotic adventure, take a guided glacier walk or go ice climbing on Svartisen. For a bird’s eye view, you can take a ride in a seaplane or helicopter. If you want to live out in the wild, we offer a base camp with two traditional lavvo – and weather allowing, you can even sleep in one of the hammocks that are suspended under the fish-drying racks.
