The cottage village
The cottage village was built in the mid-1950s and currently consists of 30 cottages. The cabins are situated on Idholmen which is one of the three larger islands forming Finnhamn.
The 30 cottages are divided into two and four-bed cottages. Each cottage has electricity, a kitchenette and fridge with a freezer compartment. Outside the cottage is a camping table that seats about six people. Water is taken from pumps. Outhouses and shower in separate houses in the center of the village.
The cottages are equipped with crockery, cutlery, glass and pots to accommodate the number of beds.
In the middle of village there is also a cottage for 16 people including a barbecue that can be rented for parties and gatherings. It has chairs and table for 16 people, fridge but no kitchenette.
Each cabin is equipped to suit the number of beds. If things are moved to another cabin then they have to be laid back so that the next guest has the right set of everything.
Located on the waterfront the Seaside cabins has a magical view. Enjoy the water, boating and the archipelago in one of six small apartments.
The Seaside cabins are two buildings with three 4-bed apartments in each. They have the same standard and equipment as the cottages in the cottage village, and is located on Stora Jolpan.
Apartment 1-3 are on the west side with evening sun. Appartment 4-6 are in the south, high up on the mountain. Both cabins have nature trails leading to the houses, and are hard to reach for wheelchairs and strollers.
The Seaside cabins are about 5 minutes from the steamboat pier.

One bedroom that can be closed, with a bunk bed.
A room with kitchenette with equipment for four guests; crockery, cutlery, glasses and pans.
Water is collected at the short side of the house.
BBQ facilities are located just outside the cottages and beach on the west side.
Party in the apartment

Finnhamn is a nature reserve
How to act?
The reserve is the fire ban throughout the year. You are welcome to borrow our BBQ, but always use coal in them. It is forbidden to take branches and moss to cook with. Be careful with nature, it takes about 50 years for the moss to grow up again, and all actions change the environment for the island’s animals. For the same reason, it is forbidden to pick flowers and break branches.
Since several hundred people can stay in Finnhamn over a regular night during the summer, one must also respect each other. Within the reserve, the volume should be kept to a level that does not disturbs the neighbor after 22. Garbage, glass, etc. are thrown into designated containers.
