Røkenes Gård og Gjestehus - mountain trek by horseback

Nature and mountain experiences, from the back of a horse starting from Røkenes Farm.

The sea route was the major traffic artery along the coast until very recent times. Coastal dwellers found it natural to take advantage of the sea. The generous sea gave freely of its bounty, but demanded something in return. Practically every family lost a close relative in a storm at sea. In the 1850s one out of every four deaths among men in Tromsø was due to drowning. After accidents such as these, it was the women, the real “fisher/farmers”, who were left alone with the responsibility for children, the home and the land. The history of Røkenes tells about many of these women. This was the way of life at Røkenes too.

The main building, constructed in the Trønder-style, is from 1750, the storage cabin somewhat older and the farm building are from 1899. The main building and its surroundings are an example of the best of northern Norwegian culture and tradition. The farm received the royal stamp of approval to operate as an inn in the 1700s, and today’s 10 th generation of owners thus have a long tradition to build on.

Røkenes Gård og Gjestehus has a café, a gallery, banqueting halls and overnight accommodation in some of the buildings. There is also a 9-hole golf course on the premises, one of very few to be illuminated by the midnight sun!

We are open every Sunday during winter season. During weekdays we operate on prebooking. Summer, from 1. June, we are open every day until the 1. September.

For bookings, please contact Røkenes Farm or Merethe Lyngen. The trip will take approx. three hours on horse back, and also includes a two-course meal from the historic Røkenes Farm.

Price from NOK 795 per person.
