Lofoten Links, one of the world’s most northerly golf courses, now offers the opportunity to stay in one of the most uniquely positioned golf resorts in the world as it launches a range of accommodation in the beautiful setting of the Lofoten Islands, Norway.
Lofoten Links sits 95 miles north of the Arctic Circle at 68 degrees latitude and provides unique experiences to golfers such as teeing off under the Midnight Sun and viewing the Northern Lights, which are visible from late August until April.
Potential residents can choose between newly opened lodges and apartments. The cosy Lofoten Links Lodges, which are set next to Hov Beach, around 1km from the course itself, have three or four bedrooms, kitchens, spacious lounges with fireplaces and terraces with sea views. Prices for the Lofoten Links Lodges start from 550 Norwegian Krone (around £52) per person per night.
The Lofoten Links Apartments range between one and three bedrooms, and are situated nearer the links itself. Guests can look forward to golf course or ocean views, plus kitchenettes, living rooms and shower rooms. Lofoten Links Apartments start from 495 NOK per person (around £47), based on two sharing.
Lofoten Links is offering special golf and accommodation packages to coincide with 24-hour golf and the Northern Lights. Meals for all accommodation guests can be arranged to be taken at the clubhouse, with the added possibility of breakfast served at their door.
“We are delighted to open accommodation at Lofoten Links and it marks an exciting new chapter in our history,” commented Frode Hov, Managing Director at Lofoten Links. “Our mesmerising location lends itself perfectly to an idyllic getaway and many of our visitors in the past fed back to us that they would love to be able to stay close to the golf course. So we decided to create our lodges and apartments and are looking forward to offering our visitors the full package of golf, hospitality and accommodation.”
Additionally, the lodges are the perfect base camp for a range of outdoor activities, such as horse riding, hiking, kayaking and cross-country skiing.
Whatever the time of year, Lofoten’s distinctive scenery with dramatic mountains and peaks, open sea and sheltered bays, beaches and untouched lands makes it one for every traveller’s bucket list.
