“Bjornar and his wife are really nice. Their home is really sparking clean. Everything is organized. They helped me to get out of the snow causing my car stocked in the snow. For the location, it is just 7-minute driving way from the supermarket. You can see the northern lights just at their home. The house is really better that the picture shows. I will recommend this house strongly and hope I will come back one day.”
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!”
Cozy, fully equipped cabin with three bedrooms sleeping up to 6 persons, ideally located just by the foot of the impressive Lyngen Alps. Just 100 meters from one of the most popular excursion points, and 8 km from the village Lyngseidet.
“Silje's Cabin is a cozy, rustic accommodation in the middle of nature. For us, the hut was a perfect starting point for snowshoe tours in the Lyngen Alps (hiking trails start right behind the hut) and for exploring the area around Lyngseidet. The hut is clean and has a small wood stove with which the entire hut can be quickly and comfortably heated. The kitchen is perfectly equipped to be completely self-sufficient. We felt very comfortable and would come back anytime.”
