Is there anything about Norway that isn’t perfect? Heavily adorned with mountain towns and pristine waters, everywhere you turn there is a painting worthy scene to behold. Norway is full of tradition, and that simplicity we crave. Folks come here to mentally escape, to get in on the world-renowned fishing, or to just dive into an indulgent culinary scene of fine cheeses and tender meats. Should you find yourself inspired to visit, consider staying at one of these breathtaking cabins that are so flawless they don’t seem real.
The interior of this little red cabin is simple enough, with a stove and sleeping quarters being the majority of the amenities. But you’re not here to stay inside, because this dwelling sits on its very own island, and is surrounded by crystal clear Atlantic waters. Hop in the provided rowboat to explore the surroundings, and traverse the remote secluded land. The off the grid experience is nothing short of memorable.
Come stay on a farm in Norway! Enjoy some of the world’s best scenery while being able to observe cows, and shop at a self-service farm store with fresh eggs. But the surroundings are the most jaw-dropping of anything. Gaze toward the vast fjord, and up to the mountains where a glacier resides. Inside the cabin, find traditional decor with beautiful patterns, and an overall bright feel.
Things get a little bit sleeker in this cabin, with a contemporary kitchen and bathrooms, and lovely sleeping spaces. Enjoy a huge open deck that faces outward to the waters. Guests will also have access to the marina to launch a boat. But what we likely love most about this cabin, are the giant windows that reveal the most spectacular mountain views.
Sitting right on a fjord, this cabin is a kayaker’s paradise. The hosts even have a kayak that guests can borrow, so you don’t have to worry about bringing your own. There is an option to rent an actual boat as well. The cabin can sleep up to three guests, and features living spaces and a cleanly styled kitchen. But we’re pretty certain most of your time will be spent on the terrace, which faces towards the water.
If fishing is on the top of your list during your vacation in Norway, you will absolutely love this cabin. On a teeny tiny sliver of land that juts out into the water. It can seem as if the dwelling itself is floating among the waves. The cabin scenically faces toward Mount Hornelen, and guests can cozy up on the deck to enjoy the landscape. Inside there is a specific counter for prepping fish!
Talk about looking like something straight from a Disney movie! These little abodes are completely basic with wood construction and a living roof. A living roof basically means foliage is growing on top, and it’s breathtaking. Unbelievable hiking terrain is steps from the property. After a long day of exploration, travelers can enjoy a meal at the super cozy nearby pub.
Located in an area that has the best of both worlds, travelers can go on a fishing excursion, and hike through lush trails, while being able to visit a wonderful restaurant in the evening. The rental itself has all of the amenities. But what you’ll likely notice above everything else are the two enormous parallel windows that open up to the mountain hills and water to bring them into your living space.
With the ability to sleep up to 11 guests, this cabin is beyond perfect for a large family, or just a group traveling together. Travelers can spread out amongst the terraces, and for an additional fee, the hot tub can be rented. This dwelling also has magnificently large windows so the unreal Norwegian terrain can be best enjoyed.
Designed to optimize views of the surrounding trees and fjord, guests will also be nestled amongst birds and other wildlife of Norway. A large circular window takes up a full wall and pulls the outdoors inside. Optimally named the “bird box“, be sure to take plenty of time to reflect and just soak in the natural scenery.
Yes, you can escape to the shoreline complete with beach and awesome swimming areas, while still being close to the city. The ocean cottage/cabin is its own oasis, but Oslo is a quick journey away. So spend the day leaping from the dock into the water, kayaking or diving, then head to civilization to enjoy great food and shopping.
