Your holiday cottage in the Arctic

A place far north, above the Arctic Circle – right at the end of the road….

Where we can hike and sail and fish in the summer, and ski and snow-shoe in the winter.  A place to escape the world, read books by the fire and breathe fresh air.  With views that we’ll never get tired of.   A place to share adventures with friends.  Watch birds, whales and all sorts of wildlife.  Close to a network of mountain huts for longer expeditions – but good for short walks too.   Somewhere ideally positioned for Northern Lights in the winter. With its own stretch of beach.  On a regular bus route so we don’t need a car – and only 1 hour from the airport!    – Welcome to Paradise!

Solli under Northern Lights‘Solli’: The original Little Red House

Simple and traditional cabin or ‘hytte’. Ideal for couples or small groups of friends. Sleeps 2-4 (5 if you are very friendly) in two small bedrooms and a sofa-bed in the living room.

And now there is another one… the same in spirit but yellow and with a few little luxuries:

River House in summer. Photo (c) Karin Silk‘Huset ved Elva’ the house by the river.  Perfect cottage in the the tiny fishing village of Oldervik, with four small bedrooms (up to 6 people), land stretching down to the river and of course fabulous views over the sea and mountains. Washing machine, microwave, dishwasher and wi-fi internet too.

Both houses are:

  • On the water-front with views of the spectacular Lyngen Alps
  • A stone’s throw from the sea
  • Backing straight onto the mountains for hiking and skiing
  • Ideal for watching the Northern Lights
  • Wonderfully peaceful and quiet
  • Great for spotting wildlife. Eagles, dolphins and otters can be seen from the windows
  • Just 1 hour from Tromso.

Summer: Playing under the Midnight Sun. Perfect for walking, cycling, bird watching, fishing, rock-pooling, swimming, BBQs on the beach and simply messing about in boats.

Winter: Superb playground for cross-country and nordic ski touring, randonnee ski mountaineering, snow-shoeing, watching the Northern Lights and curling up in front of the fire with a good book.

This is our idea of heaven and we hope you’ll agree?  Come and find out for yourself!

You are very welcome,
