  • Description


    The House of Books at the end of the World is just that. A house on a stormy cape on an amazing island just at the end of Europe. We want to make it the first house telling stories, for humans who want to tell stories. Our organisation and this place will become our base. There are 2 houses on the property and we are restoring the old house as a house of books at the end of the World, a place that tells the story of the island and the area in the Arctic. As you can see, I am a sailor and I have been sailing in northern Norway for years, so I decided, together with my girlfriend, to buy a house in a very remote area that could act as a base mainly for travellers, skiers, sailors and writers.
