Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri Inn


Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri Inn has a backdrop of sea and history and is located on one of the island pearls in the Austevoll district, south of Bergen. The inn was established by royal command when the16th-century Danish King Christian Quart decided that inns should be built at each half or whole day's ship's travel. Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri Inn was built at the end of the 17th century and has housed guests for over three hundred years. The cuisine specialises in seafood delicacies. The guest house has 13 newly-restored rooms with toilet and shower. Since ancient times hunting and fishing have been the way of life for Austevoll people. In Bekkjarvik they salted herring, exported lobsters, made thousands of barrels and net tackle. There were wharf-side buildings, bakery and distillery.Throughout the years, Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri Inn has been a natural centre point amidst this productive bustle. Bekkjarvik and its inn are thriving in the modern age. The old barrel factory and shop have been sensitively restored. The buildings are well-kept and the people friendly. The inn accepts guests from near and far, for parties, recreation, meetings and team rewards. The inn premises also house an art gallery, operated by Galleri Bekkjarvik.
