Trine and Odd-Knut Thoresen are your perfect hosts! They live at the resort, and know everything about the surroundings. Odd Knut bought Skjærhaugen in 1989, and started Norquest AS.
He and Trine have completely rebuilt the place since then. Odd Knut is quite the carpenter, and has done the majority of the work himself. He mainly uses pine trees from their own property.
Odd Knut was one of the pioneers in dog-sledding adventure in Tromsø. With his more than 30 years of experience with arctic tourism, he has a unique insight over what to do and see in the area! He parked the dogs a few years ago, and now focuses his time on you and your stay at Skjærhaugen. Still: dogsledding trips can be arranged on request.
Trine is the heart of Skjærhaugen, and has a way of putting her own special touch on everything. By making homemade soap, growing her own food and spices, she is taking care of all the small but important things. The things that make the difference between a house and a home.
