Many small and large groups choose Lygra as the setting for their meeting, event, or holiday. At Lygra you can spend the night in historic houses in the middle of the heathlands. Lygra Gjestegard and Magnusgarden are located just a short walk from The Heathland Centre, where groups may spend the night, arrange meetings, and cook for themselves – or have their meals and meeting rooms at The Heathland Centre.


Enjoy a memorable stay at the Heathland Centre’s beautiful farm!

Just a 4-minute-walk from The Heathland Centre, Magnusgarden can accommodate up to 16 adults. This is not a hotel, but a nice, old farmhouse from 1913. It is quiet and peaceful, with good views of the fjord, and a few minutes from the outlying fields and beautiful hiking trails at Ytre Lygra.

Spend the night in the district sheriff’s house from 1770!

This large, restored guesthouse used to belong to the lensmann, or district sheriff in Eikangervåg, and was later dismantled and rebuilt on the farm. At Lygra Gjestegard, new and old styles from town and country come together in a pleasant interior.

The house has seven bedrooms and sleeping accommodation for 12–18 people, five bathrooms, a large kitchen and two pleasant living rooms, a sitting room with a fireplace, a library and a dining room that may also be used as a meeting room. There are also rooms available in two other houses in the farmyard. The maximum capacity is up to 18 people in single/double rooms. The guesthouse is located 100 m from The Heathland Centre, and is owned by Ole Mathias Lygren.
