3 days - Remote Norwegian break, staying in designer accommodation.
"Here are no shops, and no cars. Here is no stress, and no dangerous animals. The arctic hideaway - simplicity at its finest"
Fordypningsrommet is the creation of Håvard Lund, a well-known Norwegian musician from the area of Gildeskål in Nordland, Norway. This Arctic sanctuary by the sea is architecturally unique set among the barren islands and skerries of Fleinvær - with the next stop westward being Greenland.
The place is created to take you away from the everyday hustle and bustle of city life. A detox from the modern world where the sky is big, and the stars bright. Enjoy the midnight sun in summer, northern lights in winter, and everything in between.
Our 3 or 4 night stays are designed as a relaxing island experience with a strong connection to the local community, and for you to connect with your inner self. Extend your break by ferry-hopping across to the Lofoten Islands. Håvard closes the sanctuary off to others when you arrive - you will have the place to yourselves. No interference or sharing the peace and quiet with others!
