  • Description


    Update 3. Juli 2024: We always want to open our doors to curious travellers like ourselves, but don't always have the time or space. Now we have an opening and want to welcome someone to stay from 18th of July and onwards. You need to love dogs, be prepared to work outside and spend some time on your own.


    Welcome to our a cozy little cottage by the fjord. Here we live close to nature and it´s arctic seasons. Winter nights with dancing aurora lights and long summerdays under the midnight sun. Here you can go fishing with our dinghy, read a book in the hammock, enjoy bonfire nights or relax with a sauna.

    For this summer we need help with preparing wood for the winter, painting, gardening, taking care of the dogs, some digging, building chicken coop and other maintenance that may come up.

    There are lots of outdoor activities to be done just outside the door. Hiking, climbing and kayaking are just some of them. The city of Tromsø is a 30 minutes drive away, you can take the bus or get a lift. Nearest grocery store is 4 km away.

    Situated close to nature you will get a unique experience of arctic wildlife. The fjord gives home to seal, whale, otter and lots of fish and birds. There are also reindeers, moose and fox to be seen. The change in seasons gives a different way of living, you´re really depending on nature.
