The Olsens Pensjonat can also boast of its ownership of the quite special Olsen boathouse in its portfolio of properties at Veiholmen.
Newly restored to accommodate anything from a romantic hideaway for 2 persons via seminars and conferences to a restaruant for up to 34 persons, this property fits a lot of occasions!
In the Summer-season there is a restaurant in the boathouse, run by a well-known fishrestaurant in nearby Kristiansund called Smia Fiskerestaurant.
In this charming setting with beams dating back to the 17th century, guests may enjoy both lunch and dinner and the focus is on local ingredients and specialities from this part of the coast, nicely served in he form of tapas and paired with local beers and good wines and with a good sense of humour and wit!
During the rest of the year, the boathouse may be rented for private functions with or without catering included, or a romantic escape for 2 on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.
The owners of Olsens Pensjonat follow the path of sustainable tourism and advise their guests to spend at least 2 nights whilst at Veiholmen.
The place deserves this, in that a longer stay lends the opportunity of really getting the place under the skin, by taking part in activities such as a guided tour around the village, kayak between thousands of islands and islets, enjoy a sea-eagle safari or a visit to abandoned fishing-villages, row or sail a traditional viking-boat or visit the coastal culture-centre to admire maritime artifacts and learn about life out here on the oceanfront!
One can also choose to exercise the art of doing nothing at all!
The weather changes fast out here on the Atlantic edge and the variations in light-conditions give plenty of photo-opportunities of beautiful sunsets, stormy seas and even Northern Light in season!
Smøla lies between Trondheim and Kristiansund and is reachable by ferry, fastboats, bike, by car or bus!
Welcome to Olsens Pensjonat and OlsenNaustet!
