This first Scandinavian-inspired glamping site combines wellbeing and refinement. Located in Kyushu, the 140 or so Goto Islands are renowned for their unspoiled beaches, breathtaking nature and historic UNESCO World Heritage churches. It is in this heavenly setting, accessible by plane or by express ferry from Nagasaki, that the Nordisk Village Goto Islands are found. In collaboration with Nordisk, a Danish manufacturer of outdoor equipment, and its Japanese subsidiary, Nordisk Japan, this new glamping site banishes the perception of camping as exceedingly uncomfortable. To stand out from the rest, the Nordisk Village Goto Islands took inspiration from hygge, a Danish concept that promotes wellbeing in an intimate and warm atmosphere.

Nordisk Village Goto Islands has kept the main wooden building of a former elementary school to house the reception, coffee shop, communal kitchen and three modern and comfortable rooms. Outside, 11 tents welcome those guests who wish to be closer to nature, while still satisfying their need for comfort with spacious beds. The decoration has been carefully thought out to be soothing, based on light tones.

With a white sand beach just a five-minute walk away, Nordisk Village Goto Islands also offers numerous activities such as diving, fishing, horseback riding, stand-up paddle boarding, kite-making and ceramics workshops.
