Ever dreamt of owning a private island in a breathtaking Norwegian fjord?

Well, dream no more - let your dreams come true!

Welcome to Ulvsnes island located close to Bergen « the capital» of the Norwegian Westland. A complete island community with immense possibilities. Truly a rare opportunity!

This island has a massive potential, be it as a private and exclusive residence or summer home for you and your family, converted into and run as an exclusive boutique hotel, or as a holiday rental property with ECO-farming possibilities and immense income potential.

The perfect retreat for almost any use:
• Escape the big city madness - and enjoy the tranquility of being surrounded by water and gorgeous nature wherever you look. Reach a zen-like state of mind…
• Pick self grown herbs in your garden, relax under the shadow of a three in the meadow while reading your favorite book, let the kids explore the island in a completely safe environment, feed your own stock of alpacas, sheep, goats or whatever you wish to have of livestock.
• For the adventurers, take to the fjord in a speed-boat and hook yourself up on a wakeboard or water skis, have fun on a surfboard, throw a line in the water and catch your own dinner…
• Evenings with fire on the grill and barbecued fish that goes well together with a nice bottle of red

Be green and self-sufficient;
The property has been operated as a fully functional farm with animal husbandry and cultivated land, and has been adapted for ECO-farm operations. Until recently there were horses, sheep, alpacas, pigs and poultry on the island. There are also several greenhouses for organic food production.

If you are into the business side of things, there are wast opportunities to be made:
• Most of the buildings can easily be rented out as they are, on a short or long term basis.
• There would also be the possibility to have someone local live full time on the island as caretakers and to facilitate airbnb rentals or similar.
• The existing owner also has had several offers to rent the whole or parts of the island for summer camps on a regular basis, and even one of the leading holiday rental companies of the Scandivavian region has made contact…
• The main building would be convertible into a boutique hotel, and opening the island for a wider public use is most definitely something local authorities would welcome.

Description:
The island lies perfectly protected from the elements by steep mountainsides diving directly into the crystal clear waters. Ulvsnes Island has a wide variety of trees and plants, a football pitch, beautiful hiking trails, several bathing areas, a big wharf and spectacular 360 degrees views of the fjords and mountains that can be enjoyed from all around the island – there aren’t many views that can rival this!
