Arctic Mindfullness

The idea of traveling to recharge


The Northern Norway state of mind. A visit to the north is not a visit to an amusement park or something staged. We are all authors of our own stories. To absorb the surroundings and to recharge, rethink, reinvent, we need to do things more slowly. With all our attention and awareness of the details. This way we can enjoy the fresh, arctic air and to be one hundre percent present. We don´ t control nature. Not he whales, not the northern lights, not the snow, not the wind. Experiencing is a state of mind.

Be alone on your own beach

In Norway, the law of public right of access is strong. This right means that all of nature, including the greater part of the long coastline, is open to all. That means that anyone who wants, can anchor a boat, put up a tent, or, yes, spend a summer night on, for instance, a beach. There are summer days and nights in the north where you can sit down, undress, feel the heat of the sun and contemplate. Look at the horizon. Feel time being lost. Believing there is no time.

Beach

Lots of poetry

You unfold your towel and get comfortable in the low evening sun. Welcome to your very own sandy beach – somewhere in the Arctic. Norway may not be synonymous with the phrase “beach vacation”. If you search for the word “beach” on the Internet, Norway probably won’t show up among the first one hundred matches, and Northern Norway – maybe even less so. Nevertheless, beach life and Northern Norway are indeed a combination anyone who appreciates areas where land meets water should experience. The northern beaches are unique in a global context – and here, you will never have to fight for an unoccupied beach bed. Because there are no beach beds. Nor will you be bothered by pesky beach vendors – or by pounding assembly line music from cheap speakers along a crowded beach promenade.
On the contrary, the beaches in Northern Norway are found in the middle of unrivaled and majestic nature. Here, you’ll have a golden eagle soaring watchfully above you as you wander through the open landscape, looking for your own, completely private beach. The only thing you hear is the sound of the waves, beating against the beach the same way they have done for thousands of years.
