The Nordic Isocation

The “isocation” (isolation+vacation) reimagines travel as we emerge from the Covid19 pandemic and begin to explore the world again. When the time comes, we’ll need reassurance as we navigate social distancing and learn how to be together once again. We believe the Nordic region is the best destination to begin your journey and we are here to help.

Space and Freedom in Scandinavia and the Nordic Countries

You’ll often hear that humans are outnumbered by reindeer, husky dogs or even polar bears in the wild regions of the Nordic countries. These anecdotes are telling, since a low population density plays a key role in creating space and fostering the feeling of freedom.

This is wilderness without restrictions enabled by the Right to Roam ( “Allemansrätten” ) which is practiced throughout Scandinavia and Finland. As a traveller you’ll feel safer here than many tourist hotspots of the world backed up by the world-class healthcare systems of welfare states.

Social Bubbles

A self-contained retreat in the Nordic region will answer the call of the wild when it comes.

Choose a glass igloo and gaze at the stars, or perhaps the Northern Lights.

Luxury Glass Igloo

Finnish Lapland

Discover a mix of panoramic glass igloos and igloo suites, for ultimate comfort and luxury. Gaze at the night sky from your bed or hot tub, and watch as the Aurora Borealis dances overhead if luck is with you. Explore the empty snow bound trails by day and enjoy gourmet meals delivered to your igloo.

Arctic Sweden

Cosy up in your bubble-encased cabin in Northern Sweden. With views overhead and in front, you'll be inspired by this fabulous Arctic retreat. 

Let's go

Shutting out the world is not about turning your back on your surroundings, but rather the opposite: it is seeing the world a bit more clearly, staying a course and trying to love your life.

Deserted Cities

A normal day in Kristiansand (pictured) would not look out of place among city lockdown photos. With a population density of just 25 per square mile compared to London at 11,760, it’s no wonder the Norwegian city feels calm.


Feel safe and cacooned in a room in the trees. Whether for a winter getaway, or summer vacation, the tree rooms offer a bird's eye view on the Nordic surroundings.


Swedish Lapland

Each room of the world famous Treehotel feels secluded and full of imagination and wonder. In other words, a perfect retreat when adventure and luxury call.

The Road Less Travelled

Whether by bike or by car, isocation can be found on Scandinavia's empty roads. Exploring Iceland's spectacular Westfjords provides an off the beaten path self-drive holiday. Or perhaps embark on a journey from Finland's capital Helsinki passing the Arctic Circle to Rovaniemi. And then there's Norway's many tourist routes which are anything but touristy such as the vast plateaux of the Rondane National Park. 

Island Bliss

If the pandemic has shown us anything, it is that "no man is an island". But island nations can show us a thing or two about isolation. When the time is right, why not consider an island escape to widen your horizons once again.

Arctic Lodge

Northern Norway

The journey from Tromso takes nearly four hours - a testiment to the seclusion you'll find at Arctic Panorama Lodge on the island of Uloya. Absorb the views and relax in the safe hand of yours hosts.

Let's go

Houseboat Hideaway
