Panoramahyttene in Norway: accommodation with the sea as your nearest neighbour

Spend the night in spectacular surroundings with the ocean as your nearest neighbour. Panoramahyttene at Sandhåland (Karmøy) is finally ready to welcome its first guests.

Experience some of the best that Western Norway has to offer; fresh, wild and beautiful nature. Panoramahyttene gives you the opportunity to get close to the coastal landscape, with high skies and wide-open horizons, and constantly changing weather, wind and light. The experience changes with the weather: from stormy days when the waves crash against the rocks, to calm days when the sunset is reflected in the sea.

“I’ve spent countless days in this area, but I’m still mesmerised by the surroundings. How the weather plays the main role and the light changes throughout the day. I’m really looking forward to welcoming guests from near and far to experience this,” says Marketing and Operations Manager Tove V. Bråthen.

Architecture in harmony with nature

The architect behind Panoramahyttene, Roald Bø from Holon Arkitektur, has been inspired by the landscape with the view as the main focus. The architecture allows you to get close to nature without the cabins taking up too much space or leaving too many traces. To really take in the stunning surroundings, all the cabins have large windows that lean towards the sea.

It’s all about comfort!

There are a total of three cabins on the site, but the location on the rocky outcrop still gives you the feeling of being completely alone. The cabins, Hagbart, Helga and Håkon, all have a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower and toilet, fireplace and comfortable beds. Each cabin can accommodate up to four adults and one child. The cabins are furnished with comfort and the spectacular view in mind, which can be enjoyed from all angles of the cabin.

This is a place to visit for relaxation and to enjoy the surroundings. The beds are therefore fully made up when you arrive, and of course we take care of the cleaning when you leave, Tove V. Bråthen adds.

A wealth of experiences nearby

Panoramahyttene at Sandhåland is the perfect starting point for exploring the region’s rich offerings, whether you’re looking for cultural or nature experiences. A short drive from the cabins you’ll find beautiful sandy beaches such as Sandvesanden and Åkrasanden, both of which have been awarded the Blue Flag eco-label. If you prefer to leave the car behind, Sandhålandsanden, a little gem of a beach, is within walking distance of the cabins. The cabins are also close to the charming little coastal town of Skudeneshavn. If you’re interested in the region’s rich Viking history, Avaldsnes with Nordvegen History Centre and The Viking Farm is just 25 minutes away by car.

The cabins are only a 40-minute drive from Haugesund, and Haugesund Airport Karmøy is a half-hour drive away. From Stavanger, you can reach the cabins in about two hours by car, while the journey from Bergen takes around 3 hours and 45 minutes.
