    Description

    Our place is on a small island in Vesteraalen, northern Norway. In summer you can see the midnightsun, in winter the northern lights. We have a fantastic wild nature around us with excellent opportunities for outdoor activities like hiking, fishing, hunting, skiing, rowing, picking berries and mushrooms, meditations.... We try to produce food on our own like growing of potatoes, herbs and vegetables, picking berries in order to make jams and juices, baking bread. We have some sheep of an old norwegian race . Possibilities to fish your own fish.
