Our hotel in Fauske
Fauske is known for its beautiful marble and is located in the Nordland region on the shore of Skjerstadfjorden. As it is situated in the Arctic circle, the town has 24-hrs of daylight from May to August, and midnight sun from June to July. It is close to glaciers, mountains, lakes, national parks and nature reserves. If you want to go caving, the cave Svarthamarhola is nearby or why not visit the Fauskeeidet wetland area with its rich bird life. Our hotel in Fauske is centrally located close to the fjord.
Scandic Fauske is located in the centre of Fauske, close to Skjerstadfjorden. Our hotel is well suited for meetings and conferences, and is a great starting point for exploring the surrounding area. For lunch and dinner, we serve delicious food made from local ingredients.
Fauske is located in the inner part of Salten at the border of Bodo municipality to the west, Salten municipality and Skjerstadfjorden to the south, Sorfold municipality to the north, and Sweden to the east. You’ll find one of the world’s most beautiful train, car and bus trips on your way to Fauske whether you’re travelling from east or south. The mountains surrounding Skjerstadfjorden make the trip an experience all year around.
Fauske is near glaciers, mountains, lakes and national parks. If you want to visit some caves, you’ll find Svarthamarhola amongst others nearby. Svarthamarhola is Scandinavia’s largest cave. Here you can walk in spacious halls and more narrow corridors. A cave visit is a special natural experience, unaffected by the weather, wind and time of year. There are guided tours to/in the caves througout the year.
Svartisen, the second largest glacier in Norway, is another natural phenomenon that we recommend seeing. A glacier walk on Svartisen is an adventure for most people. If you join a guided glacier walk, you’ll be equipped with helmet, rope, ice axe and crampons. If you don’t want to actually walk on the glacier, you can walk to Brestua restaurant and enjoy the views to Svartisen. Walking up to the glacier is also a special experience for those who haven’t been close to a glacier before.
From Fauske, you’re also close to Sulitjelma village. Visit and experience one of the most beautiful areas of Norway, and hear stories about the mining industry that once existed here.
If you’re interested in birds, Klungsetfjaera and Fauskeeidet nature reserves are the places to visit. Klungsetfjaera is located in Klungsetvika near Fauske, in Skjerstadfjorden. At low tides, the mudflats stretch across 600 metres, creating a paradise for hungry waders during their migration.
