Gothenburg & Pater Noster Lighthouse Retreat

5 Day Tour, from £2395 per person

Experience something truly unique on this five day tour of startling contrasts that takes you from Sweden's vibrant second city, Gothenburg, to the ultra-remote island of Hamneskär. 

Hamneskär is as secluded and isolated as it comes. Accessible only by rigid inflatable boat (RIB), the island home of Pater Noster sits in one of Sweden's most windblown and rugged locations. Previously considered uninhabitable, it is now home to a small and exclusive hotel in the former Lighthouse Master's building.

During your exclusive stay, be one of a maximum of 18 guests and have the entire island at your leisure for kayaking, scuba diving, fishing, lazing in the seawater hot tub or just soaking in the wild tranquillity of the untamed landscape. The hotel itself is a cosy retreat, designed to reflect its nautical history and the deep blues of the surrounding ocean. There is also a restaurant, bar, and outdoor cafe to service all your needs. Food is locally sourced and produced, and consists of some of the freshest seafood available. 

This is an escape like nothing else, ideal for those looking to rest and rejuvenate somewhere completely different.
