Surrounded by the timeless, picture-perfect mountain scenery that characterises North Norway, Volda Floating Home is privately anchored on a shimmering fjord in ancient Tromsø.

Positioned at the ‘gateway to the Arctic’, there’s no better location from which to watch diverse wildlife… or the elusive Northern Lights, for that matter.

And since Volda sleeps up to 14 guests, you can invite a long list of favourite people to enjoy the captivating sensory experience with you. 

Whichever of the seven bedrooms you choose to slumber in (there’s a mix of kingsize, double queensize and twin rooms), you’ll certainly find it hard to believe that you’re on board a former car ferry!

Beautifully restored and restyled with classic, clean-lined Scandi décor and furnishings, there’s plenty of sociable space for you to catch up in… and two TV rooms for when you’re all talked out.

Meanwhile, three indulgent bathrooms means awkward morning queues will be kept to a minimum.

Once you’ve freshened up, you’ll discover plenty of activities to enjoy in the surrounding area. Take a whale-watching tour, try your hand at fishing, or visit the world’s northernmost botanical garden.

However you spend your day, popping open a bottle of bubbles to go with your night-time search for the Northern Lights will be the most beautiful way to end it.
