More about STF Berguddens Fyrvaktarbostäder
Holmöarna are located ten kilometers out in the ocean outside Umeå and the mainland. The archipelago consists of several islands, the main one being Holmön. Today, Holmön is the only island in the Västerbotten archipelago that has a year-round resident population. It is a living area both summer and winter. The proximity to the sea shaped life on the island since the first people arrived and began working here centuries ago. Holmön also has a rich cultural and natural history. The city center, with its Bullerby feel, is well preserved and classified as a national interest along with its surrounding landscape. Holmöarna are also home to one of the largest marine nature reserves in Sweden, as well as the largest nature reserve in Västerbotten outside the mountain range. Truly a place to explore and experience. Many choose to stay long.
Farthest to the west, at the end of the road, is Bergudden lighthouse. For over 130 years, the lighthouse has alerted and guided seafarers on their way through the perilous waters of Norra Kvarken. Lighthouse keepers and their families have lived and worked here throughout its history. Today you can taste the lighthouse keeper life, exposed to the elements at Bergudden and see the sun set over the sea, the fog roll in or the light from the lighthouse dance on the waves of Norra Kvarken.
The unique location, far out at sea, also poses some challenges for you as a guest. The light keeper homes have no electricity or running water. The toilet is an outhouse, the kitchen is self-catering, and the shower is sea or a basin and a jug. Simplicity is the order of the day, allowing you to experience a different kind of luxury; the magical location and the power of nature right outside your window. An encounter with a place, with history and with nature.
Warmly welcome to the lighthouse keepers’ homes at Bergudden.
