Embark on a tranquil adventure at Birdbox in Norway, a unique getaway that combines the allure of nature with the comforts of home. Located 15 minutes west of Førde, towards Askvoll in western Norway, Birdbox is nestled on a quaint mountain farm near an old summer barn. It’s only a 200 meter walk from the farm, offering a peaceful escape to the countryside.
As you settle into the contemporary Birdbox, you are immediately enveloped by the majestic views of the Blegja mountain range and Førdefjord. The surroundings are a symphony of nature’s tranquility, with birds chirping, rivers flowing and trees whispering in the wind. Here you’re encouraged to reconnect with nature and yourself, whether it’s by taking a refreshing swim in the fjord, hiking in the surrounding mountains, or simply relaxing with a book. Guests can enjoy year-round activities such as skiing, hiking, wild swimming and wildlife viewing. Despite their exposure to the elements, the Birdboxes are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions and provide a comfortable, safe environment.
The Birdbox has a comfortable, spacious bed that measures 220 cm by 200 cm and sleeps up to three adults or two adults and two children. Parking is available in the yard for those arriving by car. The bathroom, in keeping with the minimalist ethos, is located in the old summer barn that once housed dairy cows. Guests bringing dogs must keep them on a leash out of respect for the grazing animals in the area. While there’s a bus service from Førde, the nearest grocery store is also in Førde, so it’s wise to stock up on essentials before heading to the Birdbox.
Staying at a Birdbox is more than just accommodation; it’s an immersion in a luxurious yet wild camping experience. Enjoy the comfort of a king-size bed surrounded by nature for an unforgettable stay. The bird boxes, strategically placed to maximize the breathtaking views, are also available for purchase, allowing you to create your own private oasis with a minimal environmental footprint.
