Stauran Art Café (Syltefjord/ Norway)

Stauran Café is a unique place at the very top of Norway, above the Arctic Circle. Trees can't really grow at this latitude so the buildings are handmade from Russian driftwood. You can even see shipworm's holes on some of the walls inside.
Apart from the café there's also little driftwood cabins for overnight stays, a camping area, barbequeue evenings, meditation and sauna. Crystal jewellery and intricate paintings on rock-slabs are available for purchase as souvenirs and personal guided tours with emphasis on geology, history and fishing are also offered.
They're open during the warmer season from May 15th - September 15th.
