We believe in using local resources. Our menu mainly consists of ingredients from Svanøy Røykeri (Svanøy Smokery) and Norsk Hjortesenter (Norwegian Deer Centre). We pick the wild garlic in the spring so you can enjoy it any time! We host a variety of events throughout the year, stay updated on our facebook page.
We can offer you accommodation in a holiday flat above the shop with 2 bedrooms and 5 beds. There's a living room, brand new kitchen, internet and a sunny veranda with a view of the bay.

Svanøy Hovedgård -Svanøy Estate Manor was owned by Bjørgvin bishop until the Reformation, upon which it became crown lands until 1662 and then a dairy farm. Hans Thiis Nagel, bailiff for Sunnfjord and Nordfjord, made major changes to the farm in the 18th century. Then, in 1804, the followers of Hans Nielsen Hauge moved in and enlarged the farm, and it has remained unchanged since. The buildings were listed in 1924 and a special foundation was set up to restore the buildings in 1972. Directly opposite the main farm is a graveyard with its large stone cross, dating back to ca. 1000 and one of four featuring runes in Norway.
Svanøy Røykeri -Traditional cold smoked salmon. Recipes with juniper and local herbs give the salmon its unique and exquisitely mild flavour.
The island has many great hiking trails. You can use the map below or pop by the shop for a free printed one.
