Our hotels are located in Norway’s most beautiful region. It is a short way to the far end of the ocean gap – to our most beautiful fjords where we have the majestic “Sunnmørsalps” as a backdrop. The hotels tailor experiences and have existing activities for our guests adapted for all seasons of the year. This in collaboration with local activity providers.


In the 2010s, Havila focuses on transport and tourism. 

Transport of passengers and goods enters the Havila Group in 2011 through ownership in Smyril Line, which runs between the Faroe Islands and several European countries, and not least through Havila joining the ferry company Fjord1.

In his hometown, Fosnavåg, the Havila Group was a natural part of the joint promise made by the business community to develop the local community with the construction of Sunnmørsbadet, a hotel and concert hall. Thon Hotel Fosnavåg opened in 2014. The Sævik family believes that tourism is a business area where one can create activity and profitable jobs.

In 2017, Havila Holding buys Hotel Ivar Aasen in Ørsta and takes over all the shares in Fjord1. For the ferry company, the journey goes to listing. Through Fjord1, we also co-own The Fjords, Fjord Tours and Widerøe,

In 2018, Havila expands its tourism investment by buying Hotel Raftevold in Hornindal and had thus built a tourism axis from mountains to fjords and fjords. The company Havila Hotels is founded. And in the Faroe Islands, construction begins on a new hotel in Torshavn.

From 2020, Hotel Geiranger also became part of Havila Hotels, and will be named Havila Hotel Geiranger.
