Nature’s own mesmerising light show
It’s dark, everything is silent. A glimmer of light in the sky caught your eyes. Discreet at first, suddenly vivid and sharp, transforming the black sky into an immense display of nature’s power.
Cascades of green, purple and red dance across the sky in silent harmony. It’s hypnotic and indelible. In Arctic Norway, the northern lights are a part of life.
Book our roundhouse timber cottage, the clean mountain air and nature attractions are a tonic for the stresses of modern life. You just need a pair of good boots. The possibilities are endless, go wild or go home rested.
We had an awesome time at the Roundhouse! We are SO GLAD we got out of Bodø. The drive to the place was worth it alone! The roundhouse is walking distance from the most beautiful beach and we took an amazing hike in walking distance where we saw wildlife as well. We opted to have dinner ready when we got there. Freyia and Daniel delivered the dinner to us in the roundhouse. It was delicious and so convenient! This place was magical. The entire setting, plus the hospitality made it our best stay in Norway.
Endroit parfait, dans une ambiance féerique unique le tout à côté d’une belle plage. Freyia et Daniel ont été aux petits soins avec nous, même en arrivant à une heure tardive, ce qui fut très agréable après un long voyage. Merci à eux et nous espérons à bientôt en Norvège ou en France!.
Freyia and Daniel provided the warmest welcome in all of arctic Norway. They greeted us as soon as we entered the drive way and explained all aspects of their property in detail. The photos don’t do the Viking Roundhouse justice. It is absolutely enchanting and feels like a fairy playground. The beach and nearby forest and mountains left us speechless. Views to die for. Freiya and Daniel are the loveliest. They made amazing recommendations for sights around the island, were available to assist with any issues and even tipped us on the northern lights forecast.
Really nice and cozy Viking Roundhouse in short distance from Bodø. Great interiors and creative and space efficient solutions made it a great housing, also if stay for several days. Many nature sights in neighbourhood.
I really enjoyed visiting Freyia's home. It's so warm and cozy and what super hosts! The drive from Bodo was spectacular and the Viking heritage of the area is amazing. As I stood on the beach just a short walk from the house I imagined that Vikings stood in the same spot, looking out at the same vista. It's magic!
Great hosts, cozy accommodations and beautiful scenery all around. Beach and nature walk right around the corner. Dinner was amazing! Great way to start off my Norway vacation.
We had a fun time in the Roundhouse. It is comfy and cosy and in a lovely rural area - beautiful beach and fantastic walk up the hill behind.
Beautiful authentic place. Five minute walk from a gorgeous empty beach by the sea with mountains next to it. Extremely helpful hosts, we got both dinner and breakfast. Delicious, home made. Thanks!
The Roundhouse is a work of art and an amazing statement of craftsmanship. It is an amazing place to chill and relax. We have literally had some of the best nights sleeps of our lives, it's so cosy! We would definitely love to come back, staying with Freyia and Daniel has opened our eyes to a new way of living which we have really fallen in love with. We have had such an unforgettable week.
A journey to the North of Norway is more than a vacation. The area offers easily accessible outdoor activities, such as hiking, fishing, cycling, high mountains, unique beaches, forest walking and more.
