Spectacular architecture at the ocean’s edge
The Flokehyttene cabins in Sveio, 10 km north of Haugesund enable you to get close to the elements and get a real sense of the forces of nature. The cabins are small, but their design draws the landscape in. The cabins are 18 square metres and can sleep five, and they have a kitchen, living area and toilet. Each of the cabins has been named after important people in the Viking Ravnafloke's life; his grandfather Horda-Kåre, his mother Vilgerd, his daughters Geirhild and Tjodgerd, and Faxe who accompanied Floke across the sea to Iceland. The biggest cabin, Horda-Kåre, which can sleep ten, is twice the size of the other cabins and is adapted for wheelchairs.
Every cabin has a heart, which, in these cabins is the fireplace that enables you to sit in warm and snug surroundings while you watch the storms rage outside. The most spectacular time to visit these cabins is when the weather is not at its best. The large panorama windows frame the impressive vistas, and you can watch the waves splash against the cabin walls on really rough days.
