Lillevik is a comfortable, cozy and completely remodelled vacation home in a fantastic location on Gimsøy in the Lofoten islands – in the arctic.

Lillevik is the perfect base for exploring the Lofoten islands – it is quiet, but central: Gimsøy is «in the middle» of Lofoten, between local towns Svolvær and Leknes, with most sights and activities just a short drive away. Gimsøy is an island, connected to the main road E10 runs with two bridges.

Gimsøya has superb conditions for watching the northern lights and the midnight sun: There is open sea towards north, and nothing to block the view – and no light pollution. Lillevik's large panorama windows give a great view of the northern lights and the midnight sun – and also sea eagles, seals, otter, porpoises (dolphins), foxes, owls and maybe a weasel.

Even Lofoten locals travel to Gimsøy to get the best conditions and avoid the crowds in the high season. At Lillevik you can experience this right where you live.

Gimsøy, and especially this part, is exceptionally quiet, even for Lofoten. Less than 200 people live at Gimsøy, and a large part of the island is a nature reserve. There are hardly any cars driving on the road past the house – no need to worry about traffic. The house’s plot is 92,000 square meters (23 acres), and the private beach is just 100 meters (109 yards) from the house.

Everything you need is nearby: Local towns Henningsvær, Svolvær and Leknes are a 30-40 minute drive away. It's 7 kilometers (4 miles) to Gimsøy Landhandel with groceries, café and gas station, 1.5 km to the long, white sandy beach at Hov. Unstad (50 min), Uttakleiv (1h15), Nusfjord (1h15) and Reine (1h50) is within easy driving distance. It's a 30 minute hike up to the summit of the mountain Hoven (368 m) with an impressive 360° view.

The house was built in the 1960’s and has gone through an extensive two-year remodelling in 2018-2020. In practice, the house has been completely rebuilt. The original atmosphere is preserved, updated to modern standards. The kitchen is fully equipped with top of the line appliances, the bathrooms are modern and comfortable, and all beds are of good quality. Please see the reviews to see why Lillevik is so popular.

The Lofoten islands cover a large area, and exploring Lofoten does requires some local traveling. Use Lillevik as your base and your home away from home: Spend your time exploring Lofoten, not moving in and out of houses.

Spend some days at Lillevik, you'll be happy you did!

The perfect place to stay!

Another amazing stay at Lillevik! The house is wonderful with a view you can't get enough of. Nice field in front of the house and a private little beach perfect for an evening explore. You don't have to rush anywhere to experience Lofoten, you get it all at Lillevik!

Thank You so much for coming back and staying here at Lillevik! We really appreciate returning guests and will of course offer you a rebate next time :)

Cosy house in perfect location for Golf and excursions in Lofoten. The house is recently refurbished. Very nice inside - with large windows in the living room and a large kitchen table.

Fantastic place for a wonderful and quiet Lofoten experience

What a hidden gem! Lovely house, recently refurbished. Fantastic mountain- and sea-view with excellent sun conditions (all year round). 50 meters from an amazing natural beach. Owners and agency provided a very professional and lovely service. The remote location is ideal for a quiet and inspiring stay in nature, while the local nearby store provides excellent supply opportunities, just 5 minutes away from the house. Also a great location to explore nearby hiking opportunities. 100% recommended! 100% worry-free infrastructure (warm and cozy, good heating, excellent windows..)

This house is exactly what you want if you are looking for an all authentic Lofoten experience. The location is great, with fantastic views and distance from nearby Svolvær and Henningsvær. Its a cozy house that will make you feel at home in an instant. It has a spacious kitchen and living room and four adorable bedrooms. It has recently been renovated with modern standards and a fresh but cozy interior. There is also a large outside area and a small beach near by. I really recommend Lillevik.

The best place to stay in Lofoten! Fantastic location and a great host. The house is recently decorated, well equipped and in the best condition. The garden with a shoreline is great and the views from the house is amazing. Wouldn't stay anywhere else!
