Description

Remote Norwegian break, staying in designer accommodation.

Fordypningsrommet is the creation of Håvard Lund, a well-known Norwegian musician from the area of Gildeskål in Nordland, Norway. This Arctic sanctuary by the sea is architecturally unique set among the barren islands and skerries of Fleinvær - with the next stop westward being Greenland.

The place is created to take you away from the everyday hustle and bustle of city life. A detox from the modern world where the sky is big, and the stars bright. Enjoy the midnight sun in summer, northern lights in winter, and everything in between.

Our 3 or 4 night stays are designed as a relaxing island experience with a strong connection to the local community, and for you to connect with your inner self. Extend your break by ferry-hopping across to the Lofoten Islands.

Unfamiliar

By: Igofish


Reviewed on: 09 Jul 2017

Given that 59 Deveees North is in Norway, they had no presence in Greenland whatsoever. While they were able to arrange the activities we requested, we had no single point person in Greenland. We felt on our own on a daily basis. This may have been due to a lack of personal experience with Greenland and more specifically the town where we visited. Since this is a national heritage site, I would have expected greater familiarity. However, we were able to fend for ourselves when neededttt

50 Degrees North

Did not get what we had hoped for overall on our trip to Iceland. The only part of our trip that was planned for us and we loved was at The Blue Lagoon. Did not get "guided" tours, got pick up and drop off at destinations. Planning done on own and helped put together by our agent was better than what 50 Degrees North did for us.

My travel agent worked directly with 50 North in planning our trip. I can say that all of our tours were professional and fun. Also, when the weather caused restrictions on some of the planned activities, the company was quick to find a suitable alternative. Everything was exactly as described to us and we had a fantastic trip!

Well planned, learned a lot

By: Connerss


Reviewed on: 09 Apr 2018

Hotels were very nice, tour operators were good, private guides were stellar and informative, particularly those with Mountain Guides. Would definitely use 50 Degrees North again. Only complaint was one tour operator (Artic Adventures) had buses that were so compact we all had to turn and leave our legs in the aisle, and I'm not tall. While the sites were beautiful and the tour guide knowledgeable, the long sardine-can bus ride was very difficult. Perhaps they were the only operators sending trips to our desired locations, unsure of that detail.

I would definitely use 50 Degrees North again. They planned our trip, which was perfect. There were 4 people in our group and they had something for all of us, and we all enjoyed everything we did. Leena our tour guide was absolutely wonderful. She made the walking tour a lot fun and we learned a lot. Hotels they choose were great and I couldn't have asked for anything more.
