We welcome outdoorsy guests to our lovely cottage in Holmsundfjorden in Gildeskål, 1 hour drive south from Bodø. The cottage is idyllically situated and unsecluded to the sea all the way down to the sea. The cabin is equipped with a 14 foot boat with 15 HP outboard engine.
The hot tub on the terrace is popular for both big and small, especially after a long mountain hike and a fresh dip in the sea.
Formidable hiking and fishing opportunities await you in Gildeskål, and we are happy to suggest top tours and smaller family trips for you.

The space
The main cabin has 3 bedrooms with a double bed in each bedroom. There are also optionally extra sleeping spaces in the loft. The cottage also has an annex with 4 beds (a double bed and a bunk bed).

Formidable hiking and fishing opportunities await you in this area of Gildeskål and we are more than happy to suggest top hikes and smaller family trips for you. Popular attractions nearby are Saltstraumen (35 km), Langsanden on Sandhorn Island (18 km), Sandhornet (29 km), Kjerringøy (104 km), Gildeskål old church (30 km) and Svartisen (95 km).
Less than 1 km from the cabin you will find Polar Spot Norway, where you can rent other types of boats, also with a guide, and buy a dinner. Grocery stores can be found at Sandnes (5 km) and Lake Nygårdsjøen (7 km).
Bodø, 60 km north, offers a lot of fun for big and small: bathing areas, the world's most beautiful library (in our opinion :)),good restaurants, Norwegian Aviation Museum, Jektefartsmuseet, cinema and Northern Norway's largest shopping center, City Nord.

NB: the cottage is unfortunately not handicap friendly. There is a road almost all the way, but you have to go down some rather steep stairs from the road and down to the cabin, which makes the cabin not suitable if you are bad at legs.

Guests must clean the cottage themselves after use. Optionally pay NOK 2000 for washing out. Bed sheets and towels can be rented for NOK 200 per set.

Use of the boat is included in the rent, but guests must refuel at the same rate as used, or flip an amount for this. The boat is used at your own risk, and should only be used by people who have experience with the boat. Fishing gear guests must bring themselves, except for the cheats found in the naust. Replace swallows if they go missing (can be bought at all the grocery stores in the area).

We think it's nice to be able to rent out our cottage to outdoor enthusiasts, responsible and positive people during periods when we don't use the cottage ourselves. So far, we only have good experiences with rentals, and we think it's a nice thing that you can "share a little" on the cabins in this country. You are welcome :)
