At 70 degrees north, surrounded by the Finnmark alps, the glacier Øksfjordjøkulen and Lopphavet, you find Nuvsvåg. In the past there was bustling life in the village, with both farming and a local fishing fleet. Today, the place is a hidden treasure with vast opportunities for both an active and a relaxing stay – close to the elements.

All our facilities are located within a 1,5 km radius from the main site. We can provide transport to the quays if needed. We welcome you to unforgettable experiences in Nuvsvåg!

Rolf is our general manager and one of four hosts at Arctic Nuvsvåg. He is an avowed salmon fisherman/hunter and your “go to” guy if you want advice for the good fishing spots. Rolf is known for his good humor, a twinkle in the eye, and the notion that anything is possible.
Marianne står ved siden av stor fisk og smiler til kamera.
Marianne is our “handywoman”. She takes care of practical matters regarding the accomodation units. Like Rolf, she enjoys being out in the nature all year. She is a skilled recreational fisher and is often spotted picking berries in the fall.

Stian is the maintenance chief and our technical magician that keeps the machinery running at all times. He is in charge of anything that can be fixed, and can be spotted running between projects. Stian does not know the word “no” and he is always there for people in need of help.

Our second “handywoman”, Mette, brings her husband Stian and their kids north approximately at the same time as the migratory birds return during spring – every year. She is an avowed recreational fisher and berry-picker, and our ever smiling shop representative during summer.
