Go Off-The-Grid for Your Next Vacation on This Tiny Private Island in Norway
Stargazing, kayaking, and doing absolutely nothing are on the itinerary at this cozy cabin rental on Norway’s sunniest island.
We’re all looking for ways to unplug a little more, and what better way to do just that than by marooning yourself on a gorgeous little island that's free of WiFi and TV?
Off the coast of southern Norway sits Hvaler, an archipelago in the North Sea that has the highest number of sunny days in the country. Sound like a great place to host a digital detox?
If you rent this tiny cottage (and we mean tiny—it’s only 108 square feet!) on a rugged dot of land in Hvaler, you can do just that.
The bare-bones solar-powered cottage comes with a mini-kitchen and foldaway bed for two, along with another bed in a lofted space that can accommodate two more. But you’ll also have the whole island at your disposal, so go ahead and spread out.
At low tide, private beaches appear, begging you to dip your toes into the crisp, clear sea. Lie out in the garden by day, and host a barbecue at the fire pit by night. Go all in on your off-the-grid status and take advantage of the ample board game supply and “book swap” shelf. (Bring and leave behind one of these perfect coastal reads.)
If you get the itch to explore, head out for a cruise on the island’s very own motorboat (included with your stay!). But with a private, sunny island paradise like this, we have a feeling you won’t want to be away for too long.
Book your stay at the island of your dreams here (starting at $243 a night), and keep scrolling for more lovely cottage views.
