At Myken Apartments, you have several accommodation choices on this quaint island far out on the Helgeland Coast. In the apartments at Myken Brygge, you’ll stay right by the express boat quay, enjoying a splendid view of the strait and Myken’s entryway. Alternatively, you can choose one of the houses located a bit more secluded, further inland on the island.

Myken Brygge

Myken Brygge consists of five apartments with fully equipped kitchens, and two additional rooms that can be rented separately or together with the apartments. In total, the apartments accommodate 28 guests, making it possible to accommodate extended families and even more guests.


With eight beds spread across three bedrooms, Langstrandbrygga is perfect for larger families or groups of friends traveling together. It’s a renovated traditional seaside house with two living rooms, a kitchen, bathroom, and three bedrooms.


Suited for couples or small families, Hellestua offers four sleeping spaces. Located a bit more secluded on the island, it’s about 300 meters from the express boat quay. The house includes a cozy living room, kitchen, bathroom, one bedroom, and a sleeping loft.

Boat Rental

As an old fishing village, Myken is renowned for its excellent sea fishing. Myken Apartments offers boat rentals, allowing you to catch your dinner and explore the island’s surroundings by sea. The open sea here is vast, but on good days, it’s lovely to sail around the smaller islets just outside Myken. Or, if you prefer, you can stick to the calmer waters inside the strait and between the larger islands and islets.

There’s a dedicated fish-cleaning room at Myken Apartments. For meal preparation, the local store, Myken Handel, has all you need to create a delightful fish dinner.

Dining in Myken

Myken offers two eateries that serve delicious food during the summer season. At Myken Seng og Suppe, you can order breakfast, lunch, or enjoy a pleasant dinner in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Meanwhile, Fiskebruket offers a three-course dinner featuring local dishes.

Myken Handel, the island’s small local store, serves as the heart of the community. Locals gather year-round for a coffee and a chat. It stocks essential groceries, fishing equipment, and practical clothing.

Myken Apartments is open all year round.

Myken is located in Rødøy, to the north of the Helgeland coast, and is accessible only by express boat.

Welcome to Myken

When you step off the boat at Myken, you feel your pulse calming down. Further out to sea, it’s hardly possible to reach Helgeland. But 32 kilometers from the mainland, north of the Arctic Circle, there is a small community on a tiny island, where a handful of enthusiasts keep the lights on in the houses and the doors open.
