Nestled within beautiful surroundings in the mountain village Brokke in the heart of Setesdal, Brokkestøylen is a fantastic glamping destination. Founders and owners Gro Furset and Erik Berglihn have created an extraordinary nature resort that offers a peaceful stay, award-winning food, and unique experiences in pristine nature.

Brokkestøylen offers an exciting mix of old and new architecture, including six eco-lux glamping pods and two well-designed restaurants. The traditional Støyl dating back to the 1850s is an intimate rustic space where seasonal tasting menu experiences can be shared, while the modern Glasshouse functions as a gourmet restaurant offering tapas, wine, and gin tastings in addition to hosting events and conferences.

Excellent culinary experiences are a major focus at this stunning nature resort. In fact, Brokkestøylen has won awards for its food, most recently being named LUXlife’s Most Scenic Dining Experience. Furset and Berglihn rely on local, wild, and organic ingredients for their gastronomic delights, much of which is grown in their garden or foraged in the forest. “We really enjoy what we do. Welcoming guests, making delicious food, and creating memorable experiences – this is our passion,” says Furset. “Our work here is so rewarding. It reminds us to slow down, to breathe, to enjoy life.”

Spend the night in a glamping pod

The exclusive glamping experience is a calm and peaceful escape for adults, who can enjoy some much-needed peace and quiet. Guests can experience comfortable glamping pods made of recycled plastic in a traditional igloo shape. Luxury king-size beds, as well as high-quality hypoallergenic providing bedding, providing maximum comfort. “A good night’s sleep is so important,” says Furset. “Guests tell us that spending the night in our pods feels like sleeping on a cloud!”

The husband-and-wife team run a range of interesting courses and activities related to grounding, wellness and being present, such as breathwork sessions, yoga, sound healing, cold water therapy, and forest bathing. Guests can enjoy the modern and spacious sauna, and the stunning natural surroundings can be explored during hikes, bike rides, canoeing, climbing and more. Berglihn is a certified Wim Hof instructor, and the couple will also be offering an exclusive biohacking retreat this autumn.

“People can find the way back to their roots here,” adds Furset. “A lot has been lost in our modern society. We’ve forgotten some of the things that are so important for our bodies and minds – like breathing well, connecting to ourselves and spending time in nature.”
