The lighthouse Krakenes Fyr is located in the community Vagsoy between Ålesund and Bergen and invites you to an overnight stay right by the wild atlantic ocean. You can stay several nights at one of the most weather-beaten places in the whole of Norway, taste the salt in the air and feel the waves in the whole body. Are you lucky you will experience both the sunrise behind Stadtlandet and the sunset in the ocean. Ideal for strong experiences of pure nature and deep recreation. You can also book a SlowTur package with relaxation massage and guidet tour in the beautiful surroundings. It is possible to drive all the way up to the lighthouse.

This place is unique! It has great energy and must impress everybody. We have been there for couple of days with friends and it was one of the most impressive experience one can have when touching the mother nature. Bettina and Rogier, who run this facility did everything for us. I deffinitelly recomend to pay visit.

This place is in an amazing location and has all the facilities you need to escape everyday life and/or a standard hotel room for a bit. We stayed in the storm house and had a nice room at the top with a toilet and view of the lighthouse. We loved the kitchen facilities and lounge room. We stopped at the supermarket (10 min drive) on the way in and got some groceries and made our own dinner and breakfast. It sounds a little silly being excited about making your own meal but I found it enjoyable after living out of tiny hotel rooms and restaurants for a few weeks now. At first we were disappointed that it was raining and windy but then it ended up adding to the atmosphere. We were cosy inside and the sounds of the storm, waves and birds outside made it incredibly relaxing. We did some reading, planned our trip, edited some photos, sat by the candle lights, spotted things through the binoculars and took a time lapse of the storm. The lighthouse is owned by the government but has a lady staying on site to help look after the place in the summer. Another family also share this role year round and live about an hour away. She drove across to visit us and you pay her with cash. This is because the reception signal isn't the best so the card machine doesn't always work properly. She was lovely and showed us around the lighthouse, helped take photos and spoke to us about the history of the place. We really appreciated her answering our questions by messaging us leading up to the stay and taking the time to drive out and do this for us! There isn't a lot to do either than go for a walk and relax so I personally wouldn't stay more than 2 nights. It is also pretty expensive considering you pay extra for towels and sheets and there are no meals included. Overall though we did it for the experience and I'm glad we did!

The Kråkenes lighthouse is overlooking the sea, and is the perfect place to stay when the weather is stormy. Stayed on night in the wedding-suite, and that was nice, but a bit old-fashioned. A lot of tourists around the lighthouse.

My parents and my partner and I recently stayed here to celebrate their anniversary, and we loved it. It was a crazy drive up to the lighthouse, with beautiful views the whole way. Of course the lighthouse itself was fantastic, and the four of us were more than comfortable in our rooms. Seeing the light go on at night was so much fun!

We stayed at the stormhouse for 3 nights. Although the weather wasn't great (2 days of storm and lots of rain), our stay was briljant. It helped that we were the only guests that stayed in the house at that time, so we had the convenience of having the kitchen and 'shared' bathroom for ourselves. During the storm you can sit at the kitchen table all day, impressed by the vastness of the spectacular waves plunging on the rock formations below. I wouldn't have missed this experience while staying in Norway!
