Although hardly a day goes by without hearing about the next “it” tiny house, there are certain locales that make for a tough act to follow. Among them is Norway’s Ryvarden, a historic lighthouse located 30 minutes south of Haugesund that overlooks the North Sea. Trust us when we say that no matter where your tiny travels take you, you’ll be hard-pressed to find views quite like these.
The site was discovered by Floke Vilgerdsson in the year 868 when he became the first man to settle an unnamed island he called “Iceland.” In honor of Vilgerdsson’s historic journey, Holon Arkitektur has dubbed its collection of seaside cabins “Flokehyttene.” What’s more, each of the five structures is named after the famous Viking’s family and friends, with the largest being called Horda-Kåre for his grandfather. Within each cabin, you’ll find a minimalist wood interior, a suite of modern amenities, and a central fireplace around which to stay warm. Four of the stays include bedding for up to five, and Horda-Kåre is a double-size unit that sleeps 10. With little foundational anchoring and an enormous sea-facing panoramic window, each cabin is fully integrated into the surrounding environment. Available to rent now from $150/night.
