The cabin is located 120 kilometers from Tromsø (1 hour and 45 minutes by car), and 6 km from Skibotn center. It’s the perfect place for hiking, northern lights watching and fishing. There are also various possibilities for both off-road cycling and skiing. The panoramic view over the Alps of Lyngen, the fireplace, the sauna and the traditional outdoor compost toilet, make the place exotic. In winter you must fetch water from a nearby river/well, and use the sauna oven or the stove to heat it.
“Trude is very friendly and helpful, she will answer your questions in no time. When you arrive at the parking lot, which is very well described, you have to climb up to the hut on a rather steep climb. Bringing breadcrumbs or spikes is recommended for the ascent in winter. Trude also provides you with two pairs of MicroSpikes in the hut. The hut arrangement consists of three individual huts, a short distance apart, and a separate outhouse. The main cabin has a fully equipped kitchen including a dining table for 6 people, a 1.80x2.00m double bed, fireplace, electric heating, hi-fi system and a window front with an incredibly beautiful view. The first annex, which is directly connected to the main building, has a room with a double bed and separate entrance and a storage room. Another room with a guest bed is integrated in the sauna building. To get from the main hut to the sauna or toilet, only a few refreshing steps (~ 15 meters) through the snow are necessary. A shower area is integrated in the sauna building, where you can either shower with the pump shower provided or with a bucket. Both the main hut and the sauna can be heated very well with wood, at least we didn't have a day on which we were freezing. Water for personal hygiene is obtained in winter from the nearby river, drinking water is refilled at the gas station 5 km away and pulled from the parking lot to the hut using the sled provided. If it snows heavily during your stay in winter, it is recommended to bring a shovel, we had to dig out our rental car several times. We enjoyed our stay very much and would come back anytime. Many thanks to Trude for sharing such a dreamlike place with us!”
Koselig eldre hus i landlig rolige område. Huset ligger plassert mellom mektige Kåfjordfjell, perfekt utgangspunkt for Fotturer/fjellturer/skiturer/toppturer både sommer og vinter. Det er en veldig fin plass å oppleve nordlys siden det er lite lysforurensning på eiendommen.
“Ørjan is a very friendly host and the location of his house just wonderful - totally calm, great views to the fjord and the mountains. As it says in the description the interior is like a little trip back in time, lots of charming little details. We were passing through and stayed only for one night but would have been happy to stay longer. We hope to return one day.”
