Holiday village

Finnhamn has 23 cabins with four beds and six with two. The cabins have electrical power, but no running water or WCs. Water is fetched from a nearby pump. There are several dry toilets close to the cabins, and shower facilities in the centre of the facility. A common room can be used for activities such as communal dinners.

The “summer centre” is now available for rent by school classes and other groups during the spring and autumn, with self-catering. It offers 50 beds distributed among several buildings. The facilities include a large self-catering kitchen, dining room, showers with WC, and sauna. The summer centre is used as a hostel during the summer season.

There are two buildings known as “Sjölängorna” here, each containing three 4-bedded apartments. They have the same standard and equipment as the cabins, and are situated on Stora Jolpan.
