How to get to Vassdalsvik
Vassdalsvik 66°48'23.7"N 13°36'02.5"E
Vassdalsvik is located on the coast approx 120 km south of Bodø, which is the capital of the county of Nordland. Bodø has the nearest airport to Vassdalsvik and is a 90-minute flight from Oslo. From Bodø you can take either a boat - Hurtig boat or Hurtigrutt - to Ørnes or Grønnøya or a bus to Ørnes. Both the boats and the bus take approx 2,5 hours. At Ørnes you will take a local ferry that stops 600 meter from Vassdalsvik Sea Lodge where we will pick you up or we will pick you up alreay in Ørnes with our boat depending on when you are arriving and weather conditions. From Grønnøya we will pick you up by car, which is a 15 minute drive to Vassdalsvik Sea Lodge.
Vassdalsvik is in the "middle of the nature" meaning e.g. that it is approx 7 km to the nearest food shop (Engavågen) and the local ferry to Ørnes (takes 30 minutes) to find a e.g. pharmacy, liquor store and more food shops. Since we dislike the thought of seeing you starve while staying at Vassdalsvik Sea Lodge we offer you to join us in our car to the local food shop in Engavågen every second day (free of charge of course).
If you would like to get to Vassdalsvik Sea Lodge in about 20 minutes and see some spectacular views of the jagged mountain peeks then we are working on the possibility to fly you with helicopter with Lufttransport AS http://www.lufttransport.no/ in 2017.
There are also possibilities to rent a car in Bodø and if you have any trouble with the transfer just let us know and we will help you
