  • Description


    We are a family owned business which is open all year around and together with our guests we enjoy the diversity of each season. You will be working together with Ola who takes care of the day to day operation. Ola is 25 years old and the son of the owner. You will have your own small apartment and will mostly be cooking for yourself with provided groceries.

    Fishing Season (May - October)
    Fishermen and woman mainly from Europe come to our place to fish in the Lyngenfjord. We provide accommodation and boats. From the 18th of May to the 29th of July the sun never sets and we experience 24h of sunlight.

    Northern lights season (September - April)
    As we are located above the arctic circle the northern lights frequently appear in sky during the winter months. We have 2 Glass Igloos by the sea perfect for seeing the lights.

    Skiing season (March - May)
    Lyngen North is a great starting point for skiers as you will be within short distance to several mountains that have become popular for ski touring, both for their easily accessible terrain and for the spectacular views.

    Dogs allowed!
