12 of Norway's Most Cosy Log Cabins

Picture of Danai Christopoulou
Updated: 25 September 2017
Luxury hotels and sleek urban apartments are perfectly alright. But when it comes to planning your vacations in Norway, there’s nothing like surrounding yourself with nature in all its magnificence. And there’s nothing like a log cabin to make you feel one with the elements, while at the same time keeping you warm, cosy and secure. From mountain lodges with stunning Aurora Borealis views to breathtaking cabins overlooking fjords, these are the top places to go for your authentic Norwegian holidays.

Ongajok Mountain Lodge

If you want to spend some quality time with reindeer and quite possibly catch some Northern Lights viewings, then the Ongajok Mountain Lodge, 30 km from Alta airport, is the place for you. The remote lodge offers traditionally designed rooms and local cuisine, but there’s also WiFi because you’ll want to Instagram things.

Stranda Booking

Love skiing? Then you should consider one of the cottages of Stranda Booking, situated just 4 km from Stranda Ski Center (some cottages are a mere 300 meters from the ski lifts). But even if you’re not a ski enthusiast, there’s always canoeing, fishing and golfing to keep you occupied – you know, in case just relaxing and taking in the magnificent views is not enough.

Kvebergsøya

This is how you travel back in time: by staying on a refurbished farm from the 1600s (but with WiFi and all the modern luxuries). Kvebergsøya Gard is situated next to the River Grimsa and the nature reserve and from there, you can also visit the Folldal Mines – yet another travel back in time, as they date back to the 1700s.

Lofoten Panorama

The Lofoten islands are a magical place, that’s a given. Get some of that magic to rub off on you, by choosing a picturesque village such as Stamsund for your home-away-from-home base. The Lofoten Panorama lodges are right on the waterfront, which means breathtaking sunrises and sunsets and, of course, Aurora Borealis viewings.

MIT Fablab – Solvik

What do you get when you combine brilliant scientific minds with Viking architecture? MIT FabLab: a cluster of cabins on the Lyngen Fjord built in traditional Viking style, as a place for scientists to gather and work together – but which are now fortunately open to those of us who don’t currently hold a PhD. Who knows, you may get your Eureka moment yet.
