Villa Midnattsol is a holiday house build in1999, situated 11 km north of
the Arctic Circle. More specifically, you’ll find us in
Rødøy, a coastal community in the county of Nordland, in Norway.
Villa Midnattsol is easily get-at-able by road,
RV17, air or sea.
It is a two-storey high-standard rural-style building.
First floor contains living room (32 m 2 ), fully equipped
kitchen (15 m 2), bedroom and toilet. From the first floor living room of
Villa Midnattsol you can enjoy a magnificent and wide view of sea, islands
and mountains. For your use on evenings that you prefer not to spend either
in the garden or elsewhere outdoors, there is a snug open fireplace with
plenty of firewood.
On the ground floor of Villa Midnattsol you will find a small porch, an entrance
hall, a big bathroom and toilet, and 3 bedrooms with sleeping accommodation
for altogether 8 persons. In the garage there is a freezer for your use.
The sitting-out area in the garden is fitted with barbecue facilities, where
you can roast e.g. fish you have caught either in the sea or in nearby lakes.
Also from here you can enjoy a most majestic panorama of fjords and snow-capped
mountains, and, in summer, of the midnight sun. For your use there is a boat
with an outboard engine for fjord fishing, if you do not prefer using your
fishing rod from the beach or from a crag.
Depending on the season, and from an in- or outdoor position, you can experience
really lashing winter storms, or calm weather, rain or sun, warm summer evenings
when the sun simply refuses to dip beneath the horizon, or freezing cold
winter days when only a faintly pink horizon will tell you where the sun
is just now. All told, the scenery and the nature in which Villa Midnattsol
is situated is one that can be found only on the wild and torn coastline
The area surrounding Villa Midnattsol is well suited for outings and hiking
where you can watch a surprisingly rich fauna, in the air or on the ground.
The sea eagle nests and catches its fish here, just to mention one species.
You can go trout fishing to privately owned near-by lakes. Norway’s
second biggest glacier, the Svartisen, is not far from Villa Midnattsol.
We will be happy to help you arrange trips to the glacier.
Villa Midnattsol is approximately 70 m from the seashore and just 100 m from
the place of call of a
coastal boat service that can take you to or from Bodø airport
in 2 ½ hours. 20 km from Villa Midnattsol you can
a car ferry from Jektvik. Jektvik is a village-like community with a
