1. Følvika Northern Retreat

At Følvika Northern Retreat you can sleep in the "open air" inside a warm and cozy dome, perhaps with the northern lights as an evening show instead of whatever is on TV. You will find the place on Sandhornøya in Gildeskål, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Here you get peace and quiet at the same time as you get close to nature.

2. Bjørklund Gård (farm)

Secluded at Styrkesnes in Sørfold, it is also possible to spend the night in a romantic dome at Bjørklund Gård. From the top of the raspberry field you have a view of the fjord and the beautiful landscape. In summer there is also the possibility of picking your own rasberries and strawberries.
