The Hamsun Centre

The Hamsun Centre is located by the vicarage ruins on the banks of the Glimma River in Presteid in Hamarøy Municipality in Northern Norway. The centre is situated in a beautiful cultural landscape surrounded by nature that remains virtually as untouched as it was in Hamsun’s time. The centre’s tower offers an impressive view over the realm of Hamsun, the area that inspired the author to write such world renowned books as Pan, Growth of the Soil and Wayfarers.

  • Magical experience. Knut Hamsun is controversial, and the Center does not try to hide this. Built is wonderful, and with lookout records around to the beautiful nature of the experience is just better. The staff are pleasant, utadvente, engaged, and thoughtful. Definitely recommended, and remember, it's bigger than it looks.
