Valhall is a hotel and adventure centre on Krottoy in the borough of Bjarkoy just outside Harstad. Here you will be able to spend your holidays comfortably and experience nature up-close in the most northerly habited archipelago, a natural pearl with sandy white beaches and a total of 365 islands. Krottoy was once part of Tore Hund’s kingdom. Here are ancient viking monuments. The island is lush and can boast a variety of plants, animals and birds. From the top of the island, you can get a 360-degree panoramic view. Here you can also quickly find the best fishing grounds. You can hire a fishing boat and try your luck at fishing. A boat trip onboard a rigid inflatable boat (RiB) in this archipelago is a fantastic experience with many birds and animals (white-tailed eagle safari). Here is a local family of seals, and you can visit the birdrock on Helloy with over 6000 nesting birds. Steinavaer further out in Andfjorden is a group of islands once populated by 127 people in the early 1900s. Here are traces of old habitation, and we can take you on a guided tour telling stories about what life was like. The archipelago is ideal for canoeing and diving in clean and clear water. Krottoy is a great place to see the Northern Lights in all its glory without the disturbing ground lights. From the top of Krottoykollen there is a full 360-degree panoramic view of the sky and free sight in the direction of the North Pole.
