NOW that’s what I call a view! New isolated lodges overlooking a Norwegian fjord put you right in the heart of Mother Nature’s scenic splendour – with a unique perspective.
The Bolder StarLodges are three luxury cabins high up above lovely Lysefjord, one of the country’s most spectacular waterways, surrounded by pine trees and Ice Age glacier boulders.
They stand amid 170 hectares of untouched land with unspoiled views, and floor-to-ceiling windows giving guests the feeling that they are almost floating in the mountain air.
The new cabins, designed by architects Snøhetta feature tall ceilings, panoramic windows, and distinctive decor comprising carefully curated brands and quality materials.
There are also two smaller SkyLodges, both of which feature two double bedrooms, a designer kitchen, fully equipped bathroom and a dining room with a view to die for.
Architect John Birger Grytdal has designed a two-storey cube – wrapped in Canadian cedar wood, and built on a single column to minimize the footprint in the landscape.
Be warned that, due to the unique design, they will gently sway on windy days!
Lysefjord is a base from which to explore some remarkable scenery including Kjerag, Fantahola, Fantapytten, Flørli, Lysebotn and, not least, the jewel in the crown – Preikestolen ‘The Pulpit Rock’.
