Our towerhouse - the Njalla- is an iconic playfull version of a Sami food and storage house. Our coloumn is out of steel, and measured for winds up to 100 m/s. Winds that we never had here. The Njalla is only offered a few times as sleeping pod. We want most of the year to let it be a shared reading house, but sometimes you need to sleep there. Ex in december and january when Aurora brings her purple-green dress and dances over the sky.

Other things to note
Nature is raw and beautiful, and facilities are basic as they are on a remote island. There are a few things that need to be taken into consideration by all guests who stay at the Hideaway. A water plant creates fresh drinkable water out of sea water, but it is not the unlimited resource you are used to in daily life. This must be kept in mind; therefore, when showering, washing dishes, toothbrushing, and so on. The trash is shipped off the island in bags. Guests are asked to be respectful of this policy and sort their trash, dispose of organics. This makes it possible for the facility to run much more smoothly. And if possible, take back whatever they brought onto the island.

The island is remote, and one great quality is that there are no supermarkets and shops at all. The caretaker will facilitate a great start to the day, with a continental breakfast which included in your booking fee and you will all eat together around the long dining table.

Dont bring any food, our open pantry offers as fresh as local ingredients to make lunches and a variation of dinners. We urge the guest to make food together (and tidy up). Please tell through communication about special needs.
We sell alcohol at the Hideaway. If you have any favourite food or snack, we urge you to bring your favourites with you.

Where you’ll be

Gildeskål, Nordland, Norway

Our island is an old fishermans village, with around 25 houses. We have no cars, only friendly neighbors and in case you didn't know: you can walk anywhere in Norway. Pay though attentions to dog leash restrictions and know that you should walk on the paths in may and June in order to save the nesting birds on the ground

Welcome to the Arctic Hideaway, a very special cluster of tiny houses the arctic norwegian archipelago Fleinvær, outside city Bodø.
Our place is an architecturally playful and stunning collection of eleven individual buildings, where five are sleeping cabins. The shared areas are the iconic tower house , the kitchen house, the studio building, the bath house, the crab trap (a shelter for outdoor cooking) and the sauna. Periods for offering cabins for rent on Airbnb will vary, as we also have direct booking through email.

The Arctic Hideaway is an experience like few others. Our space is as much as a mindset as it is a physical location — a place to unplug and unwind. It is a place that will give you visual tranquillity and no noise. It is truly a transformative experience staying here. Simplicity at its finest gives the opportunity to explore the art of doing nothing.

The whole compound can sleep up to 10 guests. It is an ideal location for retreats and workshop! If you are interested in visiting us at another time or arrange an event, please do send us an email and we will do our best to help you coordinate and epic experience at our facility.
