Clarion Collection Hotel Arcticus is centrally located by the old harbour in Harstad, with sea and mountain views. You'll stay in modern surroundings, characterised by art, music and culture. Breakfast, a mid-afternoon snack and an evening meal are always included when you stay with us.
Clarion Collection Hotel Arcticus is referred to locally as the "Cultural House hotel", and has works of art by some of Norway's most famous artists, such as Kari Christensen and Geir Stormoen. Some of the best restaurants in Norway are within walking distance and Harstad's greatest attractions are also comfortably close by, such as the medieval church Trondenes Kirke, and the shipbuilding museum Båtbyggermuseet.
Clarion Collection Hotel Arcticus was built in 1992 as part of the Harstad Cultural House. The building is an old industrial building which was previously a sausage factory. Over time, the entire area has been rebuilt to create a cultural meeting place, with concerts and libraries, where the hotel is an important part.
