A new hotel has been created on Sweden’s remote Hamneskär island, which is home to the famous Pater Noster lighthouse. It is on the site of the former 19th-century lighthouse master’s home on the rocky isle, giving a perfect view of the wild surroundings.
Guests arrive by boat from Marstrand or Gothenburg and are offered back-to-nature pursuits such as sailing, kayaking, scuba diving, cookery lessons, and meditation in the lighthouse itself. Short story writing is encouraged, and the quiet ‘gunpowder cabin’ offers the ideal writing den. Guests can also try deep-sea fishing and cooking their catch.
