Nellehytta is tailor-made for those who want to be close to nature, who want to enjoy both outdoor life and cabin life, and at the same time, want to relax in modern comfort and a touch of luxury.

Nellehytta is beautifully situated, overlooking the elongated strait that separates the island Alsta from the mountain range De Syv Søstre on the mainland. Nellehytta is recently built and maintains modern standards, with a focus on creating a cozy and comfortable cabin atmosphere. Here, you’ll find everything you need including a shower, bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, and seven sleeping spots spread across three bedrooms.

The cherry on top is undoubtedly the fantastic outdoor area, featuring a large terrace, a fire pit, and, not to mention, a delightful hot tub! Here, you can enjoy the warm water year-round, with views of the fjord and surrounding mountains.

Directly behind the cabin rises the mountain massif Toven, a beautiful mountain and outdoor area, and in the sea below, there are excellent opportunities for sea fishing. From the cabin, you’re also just about an hour’s drive away from attractions like De Syv Søstre, Helgelandstrappa, and the DNT cabin Rabothytta.

The cabin is available year-round.

Nellehytta is located in Leirfjord, right next to Kvitneset Camping and Sundøya. Approximately 40 minutes by car from Sandnessjøen, and 50 minutes from Mosjøen.
