The Arctic Hideaway, Norway

About

The Arctic Hideaway is a place where you could rent a sleeping room and get access to a mono functional series of houses. We wanted to create the worlds most beautiful working space, but it seems that we also have created a very nice village to rest and reset.

The art of doing nothing and simplicity at its finest

We think that better places exists if you have the needs for speed and action. The place has nothing with religion to do, it is just so, that its nothing here. Here on the island there are no shops, and no cars. Here there is no stress, and no dangerous animals.

We bought the first estate in the arctic archipelago of in 2004, then we dug with spoons and forks the first years before we met Yashar & Andreas from TYIN architects in 2013 ,who immediately introduced us to their need for prof. and mentor Sami Rintala from RintalaEggertson architecture. This was totally perfect for us. Suddenly we had the two most published architect offices in Norway on our team. After ideas were thrown forth and back for some time, we began in August 2014 with a workshop for architecture students. After eight workshops with students from all over the world, and two years of building processes led by multi-skilled architects and designers Andrew Devine & Ruben Stranger, and actually no carpenters, we now have ten small houses in our little village. Let’s see if it stops there…

The experience

To get here

Public speed ferries run from the port in Bodø just 12 min walk from the airport. There are an average of 2 daily departures to and from the island. We will assist you with choosing right boats, or even chartering a privat boat for you, so you don’t have to bother when to land. Choose between rib & closed boat (Targa).

Caretakers

Our caretakers meet you at the dock upon your arrival to Fleinvaer. These wonderful people make sure that everything is running as smoothly as possible from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave. They are here to give guidance on the facilities, and to guide you as to how to live in and around our ten house village for the duration of your time on the island.

Eat & Drink

A self-sevice breakfast is provided by our caretakers. All other meals except for hotel guests are self-catering, with the ingredients included in the cost of accommodation. We provide a well stocked local focused kitchen for our guests, although the availability of fresh ingredients will vary seasonally. If you have booked the whole hideaway, we could also book a chef who is expert on local food for you. Price after agreement.

If you have any special requests or specific dietary needs please let us know in advance when you make your booking. For lunch and dinner we have a open pantry which offers ingredients for lunches and a variation of dinners.
