‘Littleisland shuttle’ helps you with the boat ride to the lighthouse.
We have a so called RIB boat, which takes you to Littleisland Lighthouse at your convenience. When the weather is good the ride takes around 15 minutes from the closest mainland, Vinje in Bø – a bit more if the sea is uneasy.
‘Littleisland shuttle’ uses an open boat and has floating suits for all passengers. The price is 60 Euros per person, however the boat transfer is included when staying over night.
In wintertime it is important to chose an early arrival, so the boat shuttle to Littleisland Lighthouse can be done while we still have some daylight. The days are short in winter.
Things to see
During wintertime this is the perfect place to discover the Northern Lights. Out in the ocean with nothing to distract from an extraordinary show. The Northern Lights, a natural phenomenon that can fill the night sky with dancing curtains of light, are at their most beautiful following periods of intense solar wind activity. Earlier this year, NASA scientists predicted the Winter 2012/13 aurora season would be the brightest and most prolific in more than half a century.
Things to do
There are many adventures to be had on the island, allow yourself to disappear into nature along the culture path that meanders around the (70 ha large) island past ancient settlements and a 40m deep cave. Take in the sea air and silence as you watch for eagles and orcas.
If you would like a guided excursion, we can take you to explore Littleisland whilst explaining some of its long and captivating history. It is also possible to take a trip to the neighbouring island to investigate and climb high above the sea.
Return of the cod
If coming for the long weekend stay, weather permitting, it will be possible to go out on the boat for some fishing against the backdrop of the vast Lofoten mountain range where the Gulf Stream warms the Norwegian Sea and the cod arrive in their thousands to spawn. Catch some fresh fish then bring it back to the island to enjoy for dinner that very night.
