Halibutskole Vandve

We reconstructed the former school on Vandve which is one of the many islands located at the coast of Helgeland to a holiday accommodation with a unique warm and comfortable atmosphere while we payed special attention to maintaining the original character of the school. Enjoy your stay and get an in-depth look into the art of glassblowing by visiting the inhouse workshop of Olaf Hoena.


You can choose between three light and spacious four-bed rooms which accomodate two to four people each or two comfortable two-bed rooms for one to two people.

We offer facilities with two big restrooms with three showers each and four toilets total.

The big canteen is fully furnished with a bar and large table that provide enough space for a cozy get-together. For small groups we offer a open-plan kitchen.

Furthermore the following items are available:

  • washing machine
  • dishwasher, two stoves and kitchenware
  • barbecue
  • phone and WiFi internet access
  • big LCD screen in the canteen and TVs in all rooms
  • gym with several pieces of sports equipment including kayaks and bikes


The coast of Helgeland with its optimal characteristics is one of the most fishful areas of Norway and therefore the ideal location for flatfish like halibut, turbot and plaice. Our jetty holds among others two 17`Kaasbøll boats with 50 HP and is located about 1.5 kilometers away from the school. The boats we provide come with a sonar, chartplotter, hydrographic chart, life jackets and gaffs. We also offer a filleting house, walkable freezer and drying room where you can store your equipment.

Other activities

Vandve offers more than just fishing and is also a great base for hikers, kayakers and bikers. Beside the beautiful landscape we suggest to take a closer look at the local flora and fauna. The island is home to a variety of birds, moose, deer, whales, otters and much more.


In order to get to us you need to take the ferry from Sandnessjøen to Dønna and a second one to Vandve. The current schedule is available here.
