Cabins and goahti

Travel back to the 50’s and experience what it’s like to live in a different time. We do not have electricity or running water here, so life is simple on our little island. That means there’s no dish washer or electric heaters – you do the dishes by hand and light a fire in the wood stove. You can choose between staying in the houses on the southern end, where the peer and most of the buildings are, or in our charming huts in Kobbevika and Hellemolla. Additionally, we also have one new fabric goahti,  on the southern end of the island. You’ll live in the middle of “nowhere”, but be equipped with everything you need to stay comfortably

The hut in Kobbevika

On the northern end of the island, this little hut is situated in a bay, surrounded by roche moutonnées and a view to the Sværholt peninsula, Magerøya and the vast arctic ocean.

In harmony with nature

The hut in Kobbevika has extra-large windows. Our guests have complimented us on the view this allows for and love how close to natures it makes them feel. The hut can accommodate 4 people, and is equipped with the necessities needed to enjoy your days by the sea.
An excerpt from the feedback from one of our guests, Irene: “A lovely hut with character and soul. The outside seating area is great, and inside there’s a panoramic view to the bird and wildlife on the beach.”

The axe

The axe is one of the most important tools on Tamsøya. There’s something special about chopping wood in Kobbevika. Out here, you get that real feeling of being in the wilderness. This, combined with the great view, makes Kobbevika something else.

Breakfast in the old berry shed

On request, you can book a full breakfast with home made bread.


The outhouse

Outhouses are how we do it on Tamsøya! Even though most people may not feel overjoyed by this fact, quite a few of our guests think it’s somewhat charming.
An excerpt from a review on our facebook page: “To the person who hasn’t sat in the outhouse with the door open and listened to the silence of Tamsøya – you’re missing out!”

Outdoor seating area

Common area for all our guests, where you can light a fire and have a barbecue on those sunny days.
