Vega havhotell is a small hotel in beautiful surroundings with the ocean close by. Vega Havhotell is located at the north-west part of Vega, at Viksaas between forests, mountains and seas.

Surrounded by sea, islands and the freshest seafood

The hotel’s hospitality, quality, personality, and food and drink, make for a very satisfying experience. Chef Jon Aga and his staff create dishes inspired by modern classic cuisine, yet anchored in Norwegian as well as continental culinary traditions.

Many of the ingredients come from local suppliers in Vega and Helgeland. Dinners usually consist of four dishes, vary with the seasons, and are prepared with the best ingredients available. The mealtimes are fixed as follows: Breakfast 8–10am, Lunch 1–2:30pm, Dinner 7–9:30pm. The hotel has a well-stocked wine cellar and is fully licensed.

Or you can take the boat out to the largest egg and down weather Lånan and see how the bird watchers still practice this by having eider ducks as pets.

You will find many marked trails for hiking and we recommend that you take a trip to Sundsvoll, where the new Vegatrappa and Via Ferrataen are located.
