After a two hour flight from Oslo to Alta and a one hour boat ride, you find the island of Seiland. Seiland House is located in Rognsundet, which lays in the southwestern part of Norway’s eighth largest island.
Seiland House has a capacity for up to 50 guests in single, double, triple and 4-bed rooms plus 6 apartments with a fully installed kitchen with dining table, living room, toilet/shower and free Wi-Fi.
In our cozy restaurant with panoramic view across Rognsund, we serve local dishes. We have a hot tub, sauna and Jacuzzi area by the river, which can be an excellent place to end your night.
Seiland is a place you can enjoy to visit both summer and winter in the North of Norway. Its beautiful nature works as a motivator to climb the surrounding mountains and explore the wonderful landscapes, lakes and glaciers, which you can find all across the island. The place allows you to embrace the very relaxing atmosphere, and enjoy every moment of your holiday. The waters of Rognsund invites you to the fishing experience of your life, due to the favourable conditions of this strait. All while experiencing the unique midnight sun.
During the winter season, you may also want to tilt your head upwards. At Seiland House, the light pollution is close to non-existent. This makes the Aurora Borealis much more visible than in a city.
Additionally, we can offer a wide variety of activities that will make your trip to the Arctic unforgettable. This includes pictures with king crabs, watching the life of reindeer and polar dogs, fishing in an ice lake and snowshoeing in beautiful landscapes.
The trekking-possibility in the nearby mountains is a great attraction for the ones who are drawn to the “sea to summit”-experience. Here you can find peaks higher than 800 meters above sea level and the northernmost glaciers in Scandinavia.

Seiland House is built on these three values:
- Authenticity – We want to deliver an experience that is as authentic as possible.
- Security – We will always prioritize the visitors’ safety above all else.
- Enthusiasm – We love what we are doing, and hope to share that joy with every one of our visitors.
This is something that is central among our employees and partners. And this is something the customer will recognize in your stay with us.
Over the years we have developed good knowledge over the weather conditions, being very respectful with the nature and its dangers. That is why we try to keep our guests updated about the forecast and our advices are always mainly focused on their well-being.
Seiland House is owned by Seiland House AS with Stig Erland Hansen as CEO.
It was previously run as a boarding school for children in the district, but as the number of students decreased, the boarding stopped. In January 2011, the school also closed.
When the boarding was put up for sale, Alta Adventure saw an opportunity to realize a dream of starting an event and conference venue out of the ordinary. In 2009 we bought the former dormitory. The year after we bought the adjacent property that was used as teacher housing, and September 1, 2011, we took over the school to be used for conferences and indoor activities.
In 2018 we began to analyse the enormous potentialities of Seiland House to become a full year tourist destination. As a result of this moment, we have initiated investments in the restoration and began the expansion into a full-year destination.
