How to find the Secret Hobbit Hut in Norway

How to get to the Secret Hobbit Hut

Nestled deep in Northern Norway lies a mesmerizing cabin on a secluded Arctic beach. With no road access, or bike access this place is a wonderful place to visit and most definitely should be on your list if you’re in Northern Norway.

The Secret Hobbit hut lies on the shores of Kvalvika Beach. A beach in Arctic Norway and only reachable by foot, and by foot I mean a fairly remote hike through some Norwegian trails.

Parking is fairly easy in Fredvang, and it’s fairly straightforward where the hike starts.

Once you’ve parked up, follow the well-worn trail and it’ll lead you 4-5km through some Norwegian mountains before reaching the first viewpoints of the beach itself.

Once you can see the beach, you’ll follow the trail down and toward the shoreline.

From here, the rocks on the left-hand side are where you want to aim in order to find the Hobbit Hut for yourself.

That’s all the clues you’re getting, but it’s really not too difficult to find if you don’t go too far along the beach and keep to the left inside of the rocks.

My Experience of finding the Secret Hobbit Hut

After missing the hobbit hut the first time around in 2019, when I returned in 2022 it was high on the list to get it ticked off.

Having watched the documentary about how the hut was built, it made the quest for the hut even more important.

Basically, two boys from the South drove to the North for a winter of surfing inside the Arctic Circle. Their choice of the beach was the secluded Kvalvika.

Walking everything they needed through the 5-6km hike, and living on the shores of the beach for 6 months during the depths of Winter.

Seeing what they built to help them survive is nothing short of incredible. A fully functional cabin to sleep 2 or 3 people. Complete with a log burner, a small sink, bunk beds, and the famous circular hobbit door.

When I finally found the cabin itself, it was better than I could have ever imagined, and it’s most definitely somewhere you have to visit for yourself.

This wouldn’t look out of place on a movie set for the Hobbit itself. But the fact that two young men built it themselves whilst cleaning up a remote beach in the Arctic Circle…


Is nothing short of incredible.

The Secret Hobbit Hut is one of the best things to see and to do when you’re in and around the Lofoten.

If you wanted to, you can actually stay here for the night, or you can pitch a tent on the banks of the beach and taste your own slice of secluded arctic Norway.
