A weekend getaway that provides peace and harmony

Sometimes we have an need to retreat from the stresses of everyday life. Bodø & Salten is full of secluded places in wild and beautiful nature where you can be completely alone, relax, and recharge your energy.
Here are our tips for comfortable places and experiences that can help you regain balance:

Bjørklund Farm

The dome at Bjørklund gård is tucked away in the scenic Sørfold region. At the farm, you can pick raspberries and strawberries from the fields during the season and enjoy homemade cinnamon buns and raspberry juice at the nearby café. It’s a perfect place to cultivate romance.

The Arctic Hideaway

This architectural gem is located out in the open sea on the island of Fleinvær. There are no roads, no cars, no shops, no queues, and few other people. All the facilities are distributed among different buildings – a sleeping house, a kitchen house, a toilet house, a living house – so you’re forced to immerse yourself in the fresh therapeutic air of nature. It’s the perfect place to find zen.

Tranøy Lighthouse

At Tranøy lighthouse, you can wake up to the sound of waves and birdsong. This place is a little paradise with a genuine soul and hospitable hosts. You can enjoy morning swims all year round and indulge in delicious food made from local ingredients at the restaurant.

Tip: Keep an eye out for exciting events happening here – they have hosted “free, wild, and happy retreats” and outdoor yoga sessions several times.

Treat yourself to some well-being

Treat yourself to some well-deserved self-care and relaxation. Pamper yourself with a rejuvenating spa day or wellness retreat in Bodø. Indulge in a soothing massage, luxurious facial, or body treatment at one of the city’s top spas. Take a dip in a serene pool, unwind in a sauna or steam room, and let the stress melt away. Recharge your mind, body, and spirit as you enjoy the tranquil ambiance and professional services. You deserve a little indulgence and rejuvenation, so go ahead and treat yourself to a well-deserved wellness experience in Bodø.

Følvika Northern Retreat

At Sandhornøy in Gildeskål municipality, far away from the noise and bustle of the city, you can enjoy the autumn weather and the view of beautiful nature from a warm and cozy glass dome. Cuddle up in bed with a cup of cocoa and savor the silence: Here, you have complete privacy despite the glass walls and roof.

Hike in National Parks

Salten is home to five national parks with diverse and stunning nature, where you can hike for hours without encountering a single person. It’s therapeutic. Grab your hiking shoes, backpack, and tent, and set off on an adventure.


The award-winning architectural sea cabins at Manshausen hang over the edge of the dock, giving you the feeling of waking up out at sea. Stay cozy and warm in the beautiful design cabins while experiencing the breathtaking nature of Northern Norway up close.

Sami safari camp

At the innermost part of Mannfjorden in Hamarøy, you can go on a lavvu glamping experience far away from people and noise. Join in on forest bathing and experience Sami spirituality. This is the place to go to revitalize yourself in completely untouched nature. Sami Safari Camp offers a three-day mindful nature retreat where you can restore your connection with nature.

Arctic cabins

In Misvær, just outside Bodø, you will find Arctic Cabins. These cabins are located close to forests, mountains, and the popular skiing slope at Vestvatn, which is frequently visited during the winter. It’s a great place to stay whether you’re alone, with your loved one, or with the whole family.
