The Arctic Hideaway is an architecturally stunning collection of five individual eco-friendly cabins on the remote Norwegian island of Sørværet.
Conceived by jazz musician and composer Håvard Lund and designed by local Norwegian architect firm, Fordypningsrommet, or the Arctic Hideaway is a cluster of cabins on the edge of a tiny island in the Fleinvær Archipelago deep in the Arctic Circle of Northern Norway.
Whilst it may look like a typical collection of cabins, what's unique about the Hideaway is that instead of renting particular rooms, the entire facility is 100% yours. This means that the kitchen, studio, bathrooms, sauna, and all five cabins (up to ten beds) are your private space and only the caretaker will be in the vicinity.
This means you'll have to bring your own supplies, although food can be organised by the management team for an extra fee, and you'll have the caretaker in the shadows to help with practical matters should you require it.
Thanks to its position above the Arctic circle, guests visiting from around September have a decent chance of spotting the Northern Lights dancing over the archipelago. Strategically placed across the terrain, each of the buildings affords incredible views of the ocean and nearby isles while offering guests the opportunity to get away from it all, revelling in nature and quiet.

The price is per person and is for exclusive rental of the whole cluster of houses. This is not a regular hotel, but a hideaway perfect for groups of 2 up to 10 persons.
Nestled into Sørværet of the Fleinvær archipelago in Northern Norway, these five cabins provide guests with beautiful views of the Norwegian Sea, nearby islands, aves, seals, sunrises and sunsets, the northern lights, the midnight sun and so much more.
To get to the Arctic Hideway (also known as Fordypningsrommet Fleinvær) you will need to take a boat from the nearby town of Bodø. The boat trip takes around 75 minutes and runs daily.
There are regular flights each day from Oslo to Bodø Airport with Scandinavian Airlines and Norwegian Air Shuttle.
