Welcome to our hostel

Mehamn is the gate to the northernmost mainland point in Europe; Nordkyn. It is a beautiful area, where you can experience the midnight sun.

Mehamn Vandrerhjem offers an activity holiday with guided trips for all tastes. We recommend a trip to the lighthouse of Sletnes. - The world's northernmost point for a lighthouse. Or experience the very northermost point on the mainland in Europe, Nordkyn!

Other activities at the hostel are snow scooter safari, sea- and river fishing and more. Our staff know the area very well and are helpful for recommendation. We also recommends our guests to try our popular fish restaurant located on the ground floor at the hostel.

Welcome to Mehamn all year

Inkompetente und wenig engagierte Mitarbeiter, Probleme mit dem 10 % Rabatt, keine Gelegenheit zur Zeugwäsche, Interesse besteht nur an Arctic Safari, JH ist notwendiges Übel; Fazit: hoffnungslos überteuert, auch unter Berücksichtigung des Preisniveaus in der Finnmark

Notre voyage à Mehamn était super. Nous étions au bord du port. La vue était superbe. Nous avons pu randonner par beau temps.

the hostel was to be open at 3, but he did not show up till 4 and I did not have a phone to be able to call the number. The main part of the building was very nice with sofas and a place to sit but they kept it closed and I was not able to use it because the staff left. The room was beautiful, but the young man was very stand-off ish and unfriendly.
