‘The ocean has always fascinated me. All that energy in constant motion, in continual flux, its mood changing from minute to minute, hour to hour. Out here, beside the vast horizon, using the sea is the best way to experience nature.
Jan Thomas Rantaniitty is the manager of Skaarnesheimen Raw Ocean Lodge. Together with three other entrepreneurs, he started one of south-west Norway’s most westerly places to spend the night, on Sandve, just south of Karmøy. Whether staying in a bungalow, cottage, one of the two hotel rooms, or the jewel in the crown – the dome – you are guaranteed to wake to the scent of the salty air and the sound of waves whispering in your ears.
