  • 100% recommend Maria’s place! It is in such a beautiful and peaceful area. The cabins are lovely and have everything you could need. Our highlight was definitely sitting in the spa watching the northern lights. The ferries were easy to use and all up it took us approx 1.5 hours to get in and out of Tromsø. Would definitely recommend staying here!

  • If you want an authentic experience of one of the most beautiful, peaceful places on earth look no further. The cottages are beautiful, cosy and fully equipped with everything you need, the hosts are considerate and go out of their way to make your stay comfortable providing information, advice, lifts, taxi bookings etc The fact that we were lucky enough to be invited to the islands annual skrejfisk party finishing the evening with a northern lights show made this trip a fantastic memory for life. Thank you!

  • This place is splaking clean. The view infront of the house is very beautiful.

    Sasiphim2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The lodge is simply superb! Extra cozy, very clean and with modern furniture. The view and the feeling right next to the sea is extraordinary - just as Maria‘s hospitality! Top experience!

    David2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful place away from all the lights at Tromsø. Quiet, beautiful, and solitary. Great hikes to do during the winter, even without snowshoes. However, Maria did provide some, which really improved our stay. Overall, a wonderful, clean, beautiful place. Definitely will return in the summer!

  • Excellent place! We went on two Northern Lights chasing tours from Tromsø, but failed to see any lights. But in our short (but very relaxing) two nights stay at Maria’s, we saw the lights on both nights. The hot tub is fantastic, the kitchen is well equipped, the beds are super cosy! We didn’t have any milk, so Maria’s father was kind enough to drop a whole carton of milk for us! The hospitality was outstanding - Maria’s dad came to pick us up and drop us off from the ferry port (I had mentioned I have elderly parents and lots of luggage to Maria; she sent her father herself!). On Christmas day, he even took us in his car to show us around the village! One of the best places I’ve stayed at. If you come to Tromsø, you *must* head to Vengsøya and stay at Maria’s!

  • I have just returned to the UK after taking my partner to Maria’s beautiful cabin in Norway to propose under the Northern lights. We had an absolute nightmare on the way out there, as our airline failed to transport our luggage with us correctly and there was a 5 hour delay on arrival. Shattered and frustrated we both arrived at the cabin, and having my objective clear in the back of my mind, I was growing increasingly worried that everything was going to go wrong. HOWEVER, Maria, her father, their amazing Alaskan Malamute and simply spectacular premises made all the difference in helping me to completely turn it around, not just to selvedge the trip, but completely smash it out of the park. We have travelled many places in our time, paid less and more, but I can honestly say, that if there was a perfect checklist in how to be the ideal host and provide the idea location, these guys tick EVERY box. From the moment we arrived, we both nearly instantly forgot about our travel woes, as we were greeted with possibly the most stunning displays of the northern lights directly from the hot tub. Surrounded by the festivity of Christmas lights and fresh snow it was like being in the middle of Whoville. The temperatures inside the cabin were perfectly maintained, clean and modern with all necessary appliances, whilst also maintaining the true winter cabin experience. You will have everything you need and more! The views inside and outside of the cabin are spectacular. In my days of travel, usually it has been the country and experiences that have stayed with me.. only will there be a few very special places that I remember for where I stayed. Our stay with Maria in Vengsoy will forever be one of those special ones! If your thinking about it, stop thinking about it and do it, your lucky you’ve stumbled across this place before committing to something else where you will almost certainly get less for your cash when it comes to value for money!!! Thanks Maria!!! - Oh yes.. and she said yes, phew!

    Tim2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Maria’s place is wonderful. It’s the perfect getaway, quiet, peaceful, and beautiful. There’s a grocery store across the street, and it’s around the corner from the ferry. Great place for northern lights viewing! Highly recommend!

    Spacious and cozy apartment with a gourgeous view over the fjord and the mountains. Newly renovated and high standard. The apartment has cable TV, free Wi-Fi, a luxurious veranda and fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher. Transfer from the airport is possible. Great opportunities for hiking and northern lights. There are fishing boats for rent if desired. The owners live in nearby and will be available if you need any help.
    Our apartment is the type of accommodation about which you might say that it has its soul. It has been newly renovated and has everything one might need on holiday, but we tried to keep the spirit of home, avoiding the empty hotel feeling. We made it cozy and warm to make your stay in Tromsø unforgettable :)
    The apartment is located in a quiet area of Tromsø - on the island of Kvaløya, which in translation from Norwegian means "The whale island". The name speaks for itself - it is famous for great whale watching opportunities, as the whales come very close to the shore during their feeding period. If you are lucky, you might see the whales right from the spacious veranda of the apartment. The place is also perfect for observing the northern lights, as there is no light pollution, which disturbs the show. In addition to that, you will most likely see a lot of reindeers and other animals in the area - the place is perfect for reunion with nature and relaxing, while being still very close to the central part of Tromsø - it takes about 40 minutes to drive to the city center, and 30 min to the airport. We recommend to rent a car when travelling to Tromsø, but there also busses running form the place to the city center. We provide free parking.
  • Nice and clean apartment. We had a small problem with a tap but Sergey fixed it straight away.

    Jolanta2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great location with a very nice view. We had a good stay and I would recommend.

    Tiemen2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean apartment away from Tromso. The apartment has everything you need for a winter stay. The house is very warm. The host does not impose himself, but if you need help, he is always next to you. Good communication skills. Beautiful view from the living room. It is a place away from the city for people who want to reset their heads and relax from the hustle and bustle of the city. I need a car to visit the fjords and go shopping. recommend

    Beata2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great pleasure to stay in Sergejs' apartment. We fully recommend this host!

    Judyta2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • We saw the aurora burst and starry sky here, it was really beautiful, the house was big and clean, suitable for friends and couples, I will choose this place next time I come to Tromso.

    2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • The room was very clean and warm, and I saw Aurora in the yard. The very large window in the living room can see the iceberg outside, which is a very stunning view. Great experience and great memories. The host was very nice. Perfect listing. Need a car. This house is really great!

    Huixin2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Many thanks to Olga for hosting us. The arrival was smooth, the apartment is fully furnished, the kitchen is nice and the terrace overlooking the fjord is a must ! Too bad the weather did not allowed us to enjoy the northern lights...

    Lorene2019-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • A quiet place, very friendly people. And they solved us up to the transport problems. They have been very patient with us and nice. We hope to return.

    Nyere moderne hus med uteplass med pergola, bålpanne/bålplass, hundegård, egen strand, utepeis og vedfyrt badestamp i fjæra. Idyllisk beliggenhet med lite naboer, og nærhet til fjæra, skogen og fjellet. Flere utfordrende fjelltopper en liten kjøretur unna, og et nærområde som er perfekt for fysisk aktivitet og nærhet med naturen. Gode forhold for å fange nordlyset.
    Vi har god plass og uteområdet er idyllisk og trygt. Her kan barna boltre seg i frilek, mens mor og far kan sitte å slappe av i pergolaen. Stranden er flott og her kan man plukke skjell og ta en spasertur. Også flott om man ønsker å ta nordlysbilder. Vi kan være behjelpelig med tips om andre plasser på øya som har 0 lysforurensing. Det er fiber installert og trådløs Wi-Fi, tv-stue oppe i 2 etasje, med diverse spillkonsoller, samt tilgang til canal digital kanaler og Netflix. TV-krok nede også.

  • Our stay at Liz and Ednar’s place has been an amazing experience. Their kindness, fast-response and advise helped us to have one of the best holidays in our lives. The house is sparkling clean, with little touches that make you feel like you are in a special place. The hot tub, views, silence and the sea have made our stay the best Airbnb experience so far, out of many.

    Eduard2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • What an outstanding property and fantastic hosts. We holidayed as 2 family’s with 5 children and the house was perfect for all of us. The snow was perfect to make snowmen, the northern lights popped by twice, and we saw lots of reindeer. Would highly recommend

    Jen2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Words cannot describe how lovely our stay was. We were picked up at the airport and helped with anything from shopping, lifts to local tips and aurora notifications. Liz and Ednar were absolutely lovely and very welcoming. We were hosted for dinner with local food and stories which was a great addition to our Norway experience. We got to see the northern lights too every night (watching them from the hot tub was a unique kind of emotion) We will definitely be returning to this beautiful home again. Highly recommended :)

    Miglena2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • The house and welcoming was amazing , Liz and her partner were very kind and extremly helpful to us . Their house is just so amazing even better than in the pictures , a beautiful and cosy house in an extraordinary environment , they have on top of that a beautiful jacuzzi with an unique view . The hosts and place made that journey amazing and I recommend highly this place for unique memories . :) :) :)

    Ait Mhand2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • I can't recommend this place enough. Liz and Ednar are wonderful hosts. They are kind, helpful and sociable yet were very respectful of our space. They stayed in their old house, around 30 metres away from the air BnB house, so could be with us whenever we needed. The house is totally stunning and luxurious. It is sparkling clean, warm, spacious, stylish, homey and functional. There were lots of lovely touches when we arrived, such as: candles all over the place, a selection of buscuits on the kitchen counter and the woodburner had been lit. There are all sorts of appliances available including a coffee machine, blender, food processor, dishwasher, microwave, oven and cool high tech hob. There is every sort of pot, pan and general kitchen equipment you could ever need. The setting is tranquil and beautiful. The house overlooks a beach, fjord and mountains. There is a little outside area next to the house with a large wooden table and stools. It is lit by fairy lights and has sheepskins, blankets and a heater to keep you warm. Liz and Ednar heated the hot tub for us on both days of our stay and decorated the area with fairy lights and candles. This made our trip extra special. We sat in the hot tub both evenings and listened to the sea and prayed for the Northern Lights. We also ran from the hot tub into the ice cold sea and back again! There are two bedrooms with velux windows which enable you to stargaze and (if you're lucky) watch the Northern Lights whilst in bed. All the beds have thick mattress toppers on and feather duvets and are extremely comfortable. Upstairs, there is a large lounge area with an L shaped sofa and huge TV. The shower is powerful and warm. There is also a freestanding bath. Organic, natural shampoo, conditioner etc is provided. We hope to return with our whole family!! Thank you Liz and Ednar!

    Patrick2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • As a group of five friends we set off for Skarsfjorden, about 45 minutes to drive from Tromsø airport. This scenic route alone was worth every minute driving. The cabin gives you all the comforts of home and even more as you can enjoy a sauna and a fireplace. The area keeps you standing still experiencing the stunning view on the fjord and the mountains all around this place. We were fascinated by the raw and proud nature, by eagles passing by, wild reindeers walking just by the cabin and seals raising their heads out of the water. We fell in love with a small beach near by. Just walk to the end of the path and even further. It will be there waiting for you. We were intrigued with the sound of silence except for some seagulls. You could even hear the snow falling. Speechless were many moments in three of our nights when we watched the northern lights just from behind the cabin. One can only bow to this place as it has given us exactly what we were looking for and surprised us with so much more! And last but very much not least an enormous thankyou to our host, Siv. She has a perfect sence of balancing taking care and giving her guests also their privacy. She helped us every time we needed it. Thanks a lot Siv, for caring - unforgettable! Alex, Christian, Kathy, Robin, Kath

    Alexandra2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • The location was perfect for us! If you are looking for peace and quiet, Siv is the right place for you. The house is next to 3 others, which were uninhabited in our time, right on the water. Siv was always helpful and easy to reach. We want to come again :)

    Leonie2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was amazing! we really could unwind and relax in the most beautiful wintert worderland and the cabin was so cozy and nice with the fire place and the most amazing view. Also the northern lights;)

    Rebecca2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very cosy cabin. Nice place to enjoy the beautiful nature and the silence. Just perfect to see the nothern lights.

    Julian2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was fully exceeded by the beautiful accommodation and the exceptionally quiet location overlooking the Fjord. We spent a wonderful week for three and could just relax. The view from the large windows showed a different picture of nature every morning. Fortunately, we also had the opportunity on 2 days in the evening to be able to view the northern lights from the terrace. Perfect.

    Rene2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a super nice holiday in the house. It was wonderful to be able to observe the polar lights directly in front of the house. If you are looking for peace and nature you are right in Siv's house.

    Kathrin2019-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • We were a group of 4 friends from Germany and stayed 7 days at the beginning of March at Sivs beautiful cottage. The cottage itself is really lovely placed magically just at the edge of the fjord with a breathtaking view over the sea and mountains just in front and behind of you. When you wake up with that kind of view anything else seems unimportant. The description fits very well so you know what to expect in puncto driving conditions, distance to Tromsø and groceries (about 1 h drive) and the equipment of the cottage. We didn’t meet Siv personally but she was available over phone anytime and responded very quickly over messages. The stay is perfect if you are looking for both- a little adventure in trips into the perfect nature around you and also enjoying lazy and lonely days only with your people in between sauna, the cold and the silence of the snow and some visuals of the reindeer :) If you are as lucky as we the cottage and it’s loneliness gives you the peace and perfect conditions to let you feel the amazement of standing just underneath the most beautiful northern lights! Overall we had memorable days up north- Thanks Siv for letting us stay!

    Skarsfjorden, Troms, Norway

    A cabin by the sea only 25 minutes from the city center of Tromso by car. The place have excellent sun conditions for summervacation. Possibilities for fishing in the sea or lakes (icefishing at winter) in closest vicinity. Hiking in the mountain. Its an ideal place observing the northern lights in the wintertime as it don’t have the lightpolution from the citylights. Woodenfire in the cabin, a truly cosy experience :-)
    The place consist of one main cabin with fully equipt kitchen, livingroom, bathroom with watertoilet and shower, 2 bedrooms with one queensizebed and one bunk bed (in total room for 4 persons). Fireplace. The second, smaller cabin, equipped with 2 doble beds, electric heat. A infrared sauna at the property for guests to use.
    The cabin is located right bye the sea. You have the sea, mountains, nature and lakes in the closest vicinity. The city center is a 25 minute drive away.
  • Fantastic location. Close to Tromso but after enough away not to have the light pollution. Cabin is right in the fjord side. Amazing wildlife all around you. Otter, moose, reindeer and eagles all visit the garden. Great spot for northern lights. Great communication from Svein.

    Richard2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Svein's place is amazing. Clean, cosy and if you are lucky you will get to see Northern lights! If you can try to arrive at daylight, the place was a little bit hard to find in the dark (and snow) but otherwise everything went smoothly and we really enjoyed our stay.

    Zuzana2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time in this beautiful holiday home, right on the fjord, very close to the water, very quiet and in the middle of nature. The house has a great interior with everything you need. Sevin is a very friendly and courteous host, the communication worked very well and we didn't have to wait long for answers. Highly recommended!

    Kathrin2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • - Top holiday home with a great view of the fjord and proximity to the water - Quiet, idyllic location with little traffic - Super interior and nice opportunities to sit outside - Communication worked very well (quick answers) - Svein is a very friendly and courteous host We had a great time there, highly recommended!

    Julian2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend this house! The house is near the sea, away from the interference of urban light pollution, and the aurora was photographed on the balcony on the first day. The scenery outside the house is charming, which is very suitable for taking pictures. It must have another flavor in the summer. As I said, the house is far away from the city center, so it is a little inconvenient for people who do not have a car, but if you rent a car, you do n’t have this trouble-of course, if you do n’t have a car, you can also call a taxi, which is also very convenient. . Believe me, although the house is relatively remote, it is definitely worth it for those who want to relax. The host Svein is full of taste, and the room facilities are complete. Although there is no wireless network, various board games in the house (both are well-known and easy-to-use board games, you can find a complete game explanation on Baidu / Google) and vinyl records. Our life in the house is not boring at all. Traveling to Northern Europe is a journey to relax yourself and should not be tied to electronic equipment and the Internet. The host is very enthusiastic, responds quickly and praises! I look forward to visiting Tromso some summer in the future, and I will choose this house to feel the beauty of summer here.

    2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Svein place is absolutely great. We stayed there three nights with family of four persons. Our children slept in smaller cabin and they really liked to be there. The pictures give very good feeling about the house and surroundings. During our stay it was almost all the time sunny so we had great memories from the island of Ringvassoya. Two places really worth of seeing; take a hike to Rismålhøgda och Tennvatnet (starting point near house at Simavika parking place) and other is Ringvannet (easily reachable by car if you don`t like so much hiking). And both places are great place to fish, got some evidence. We didn´t met Svein but all the communication went fine and fast. So warmly recomended to have a visit this place. With best wishes, Janne Puhakka

    Tromsø, Troms, Norway

    We welcome you to a small but charming Island. If the aurora is what you seek then Vengsøya is the place to be! Just a small hike and you're surrounded in complete darkness. All cabins have excellent sea view and a chance for aurora spotting right outside your window. The ferry to Vengsøy is at Belvik, around 30min from the airport. The ferry ride to Vengsøy also takes 30min, We will pick you up at the airport and take you back after your stay. Please see the last pic for ferry schedules.
    staying on vengsøya is an unique chance to see the outskirts of Tromsø. The Island is remote and if what you seek is nature, privacy, northern lights or fishing then this is the place to be. The Island is also very dark in the evenings with the only streetlights on the road. This makes it very easy to spot the aurora when you only have to walk 500m from the cottages to get away from any strong light. There is also a general store for any necessities just 500m from where you will be staying. If you're interested in watching the northern lights or just fish in the middle of the sea then we will gladly take you out with one of our motorboats. We also invite you to see vengsøyfjorden, a beautiful fjord experience by boat. Please contact me for this as we can discuss a price. We also have two mountaintraces with different difficulties (Vengsøytinden and vengsøytravesen), the latter we highly encourage caution as it may be dangerous for any adventurous group/person. We will show you both traces by car and guide you in the right direction. Both traces are also marked so you won't get lost. There is also a fishery right on the side of where you will live.
    As you probably red above, Vengsøya is a stretched society with only 100 people, this makes the neighbourhood very quiet and relaxing. The houses around are built as traditional norwegian houses, from wood and in different colours.
  • Frank is very nice and hospitable! Today, we stuck on the road because of the heavy snow. Frank came to help us immediately, and he also asked his friend to help us! Thank you so much! We really enjoy the time we spent here. If we have a chance to back here, we’ll book this stay again! Thank you so much!

    Hsin I2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little space for four people with a beautiful sight at the island's mountain. The kitchen has good equipment. Although we had our stay during the cold season we had no issues with temperature in the house. Also, Frank was a very nice host and very passionate to answer questions.

    Velkommen til Hytta i Glimbukt! Den ligger i et flott og stille naturområde, omringet med hav og fjell. Der er flere fine fjelltopper i nærheten, som er populære turmål for topptur-entusiaster og Randonne-skikjørere. Området er også flott for å oppleve spektakulært Nordlys, og det er mulig å se nordlys fra hytta. Havet/strandsonen ligger ca. 50 m nedenfor hytta, og der kan man fiske, padle eller seile mm. Mars og April er også gode måneder for å oppleve nordlys og gå på ski! Velkommen!
    Hytta er ei tømmerhytte fra 1992, som holder godt på varmen. Den har et inngangsparti, bad, et stort soverom, kjøkken og stue i ett, og et mindre soverom innenfor stuen.
    Hytta ligger litt avsides, og det er flere hundre meter til nærmeste nabo. Et firma som driver med Nordlys-guiding er å finne ca 600 m fra hytta, i Bjørnskaret.
  • It was very nice to stay at Helene’s place, the view is truly amazing. The area far away from the city and the light pollution so it is perfect for people who wants to enjoy northern light. There are also a lot of skiing possibilities around. I recommend it!

    Agathe2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing cabin 40 mins drive from Tromso with a spect view

    Luca2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin is very well located if you want to see northern light. It is a bit out of Tromsø, that’s make it perfect to get away from the light pollution from the city. The house is very charming and functional. Our 2 daughters enjoyed it too with a lot of nature around the cabin as well as some toys available inside.

    Alexandre2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view, not far away from Tromso. Walking along the fjord is a pleasure and in the montain above also with snowshoes. we regretted not meeting Helen. Thank you

    Marion2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The house and its location is superb. We had a great stay, there are many hikes to do around Hélène's. We thank him for his responsiveness. I highly recommend this accommodation if you want to find yourself in the middle of nature.

    Luxurious apartment in the quiet area of Tromsø with a fantastic fjord view. Newly renovated and high standard. The apartment has cable TV, free Wi-Fi, a spacious veranda and fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher. Transfer from the airport is possible. Great opportunities for hiking and northern lights. There are fishing boats for rent if desired. The owners live in nearby and will be available if you need any help.
    Our apartment is the type of accommodation about which you might say that it has its soul. It has been newly renovated and has everything one might need on holiday, but we tried to keep the spirit of home, avoiding the empty hotel feeling. We made it cozy and warm to make your stay in Tromsø unforgettable :)
    The apartment is located in a quiet area of Tromsø - on the island of Kvaløya, which in translation from Norwegian means "The whale island". The name speaks for itself - it is famous for great whale watching opportunities, as the whales come very close to the shore during their feeding period. If you are lucky, you might see the whales right from the spacious veranda of the apartment. The place is also perfect for observing the northern lights, as there is no light pollution, which disturbs the show. In addition to that, you will most likely see a lot of reindeers and other animals in the area - the place is perfect for reunion with nature and relaxing, while being still very close to the central part of Tromsø - it takes about 40 minutes to drive to the city center, and 30 min to the airport. We recommend to rent a car when travelling to Tromsø, but there also busses running form the place to the city center. We provide free parking.
  • At Sergejs we found a stylish and very clean apartment. In the kitchen there were the usual items of equipment, such as an oven, microwave, coffee maker, kettle, refrigerator, etc. The apartment is more than big enough for 6 people. In the 3 bedrooms there are 7 beds (a double bed with a single bed as a bunk bed, and 4 single beds that can be put together). The hosts are very nice and answer your questions when you approach them. But they don't bother you with their presence. There is a table on the balcony that you can certainly use in summer. We do not know whether there is a grill. You have a beautiful view of the fjord. On two evenings we could see the northern lights and take pictures from our balcony. The only thing that was a little distracting was the street lights that shine through the night. There was enough parking space on the property. All in all a wonderful place to stay, where you can feel at home.

    Ilona2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • I love Sergejs place n our stay there was priceless. The view was breathtaking and soothing to the soul. The location was 40 mins away from Tromsø city but coming from the tropics we were not confident with driving on snowy terrains. Sergejs was kind enough to offer us a private transfer n pick us up from our lodging in the city and then to the airport when we left. He also drove us to the grocery store when we ran out of rice. The house was spacious where our family of 6 each had a good relaxing time and not step on each others’ toes. Our more active child played safely on the deck where we could monitor her from the comfort of the living room and kitchen. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything I needed to whip up many different dishes the whole time we were there, provided u bring enough provisions to last your stay. What was most precious was that we were able to catch the aurora from the deck and take amazing pictures without paying to join gruelling aurora hunts with tour companies. I really recommend this property. I myself would love to come back perhaps in summer next.

    Asni2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • I really loved this place. Everything was super clean and beautyfull and comfortable. I had the best few over the fjord and one night I saw the northern lights right from my balcony. Olga and Sergejs where so nice and helpfull! I hope I can come back one day.

    Isabel2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was perfect for us! Sergio always answered really soon and gave all informations we needed! There were towels and bedlinen in the apartment, salt, sugar and so on! The rooms were really clean. I can really recommend the apartment - specially if one wants to be in a calm region, but near enough to reach the center of Tromsø really fast!

    Martina2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Good location+perfect landscape= Sergejs house Good living experience

    2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was just perfect. The location is amazing if you want to be far away from the city and just be in the nature. Amazing hiking routes, silence and chill spots. There is a supermarket like 3km away so you can walk there. The hosts live just under the apartment and are always available for everything. They took us out with the boat for fishing and exploring the fjords. In the apartment is everything you need and it was really really clean. We were all super happy with our stay!

    Nadja2019-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • The Apartment was Perfect. It was clean and the location was awesome. From the balcony you had an amazing view over the Fjord. The Apartment had all the Equipment we needed to cook our own meals (plus: a dishwasher!). It‘s a 45 Minute bus ride into town, the Bus stop is a 5-Minute Walk away. It‘s Necessary to Look up the Bus Times online because it doesn’t run very often. We got picked up and dropped off at the Airport of Tromsø which was Nice. There was a Person close to the apartment to help in case there was anything we needed. It was possible to watch Northern lights and Stars right from the balcony. Overall an amazing experience and we would love to come back at some point.

    The cozy and modern villa is about 1,5 hours drive from Tromsø on the island Ringvassøya (without ferry to reach). It has 8 bedrooms and it can accommodate a maximum of 10 people. Mikkelvik has the perfect combination of mountain and ocean. Excellent area for skiing/ Northern Lights and for hiking and fishing in the summer.
    The floor-to-ceiling windows of the living room allow a fantastic view of the sea. Connected to this is a modern open plan kitchen with all the appliances needed to supply itself and a dining area for up to 10 people. Either from the cozy sofa or on the large terrace you can look at the northern lights.
  • We spent one week in Mikkelvik Brygge and it has been a really nice experience. The house is really nice, has a good design and it is located in a wonderful zone. The hosts are really nice and made us everything very easy and practical. Besides the rando we foresaw and did, we were able to walk up and down and take the ferry to Rebbensoy and look at the renos, eagles and the wild nature of this area.

    Olga2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to get away from everything. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Went in Feb and managed to see the northern lights too.

    Umeet2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Mikkelvik! The communication with the owners were excellent, they are very friendly people and always ready to assist when we had some question. We have nothing to complain about.

    Timo2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a beautiful new years eve in Mikkelvik. The house is absolutely perfect in every way. You have loads of space and the house is super tidy, cosy and well equipped. Everything worked out as it was promised. The two double-bedrooms are providing you a nice view towards the sea and the mountains. Every day we used the little amount of daylight for a vacation in that amazing landscapes. We can recommend to take the ferry which is nearby and do a hike at the island Rebbenesøya... and definitely use the sauna! The place is everything you need if you want to be far away from the rush...

    Tim2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for nature lovers - it is about 1.5 hours outside Tromsø , a peaceful place with great views, comfortable and well furnished chalets. We highly recommend the boat trip to the fjords and fishing with Oliver, we had a lot of fun with the reindeer sleigh ride ( although please note reindeer and dog sledding are all done from the other side of the city , so the transfers to and fro can add to the cost) . The Mikkelvik team gave our kids sleds to use as a nice Christmas surprise , they were very happy! We were extremely fortunate to catch the spectacular Northern lights on our last night right outside our chalet as the location is outside the city, near the sea and mountains. Overall, great place and service !

    Suryani2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Spectacular. Cozy. Complete. Mikkelvik’s place is the perfect home after a long ride from Tromsø. It’s beautifully designed at the edge of the shore where the mountain hugged the sea. We were all grateful to Oliver and Katja as they were both very welcoming. The house was warm and cozy with everything you could ever need. Although it is a little far from the groceries, it is a minor incovenience as long as you have a car. The warm water never ran out, nothing malfunctioned. A variety of activities were provided by our hosts at a fair cost: boat fishing, barbeque house, and camp fire. A complete experience.

    Tanchanok2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place is owned by Katja and it's located at Mikkelvik. Although the place is 1hr30mins from the Tromsø city centre, I will highly recommend it because of it's classy interior design, the stunning view from bedroom, wonderful hospitality of Lena, and high chances to see the Northern Lights just from it's deck area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this place. Highly recommended!!

    Kaustubh2019-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Mikkelvik is a haven of peace in the Norwegian polar circle, perfectly equipped and with a warm welcome! The view is superb, the traditional sauna is very nice, the beds very comfortable ... ideal for a family trip to discover the great north!

    Only 23 km from the airport in Tromsø. Built in 2007. Perfect conditions for watching aurora borealis because you are well away from the lights of the city. Many aurora guids bring guests to this area. If you are very lucky you can also watch killer whales (orcas) from the beach just below the cottage.
    You can travel by bus but we recommend to rent a car. There are a small grocery shop in Kvaløyvågen, about 10 km from the cottage. You will find larger shops at Kvaløysletta in about 20 km distance.
    15 cottages nearby but not very often in use during winter.
  • The house is really nice and cozy. We stay there for abut 10 days and see the Northern Lights there. Communication was very quick and easy and Morten gave us a nice wellcome and explain all. We also use the snow blower because it was very, very much snow and with the snow shoes in the house we make two nice tours. The kitchen ist very good with all things you need. We can recommend this beautifull place. Thank you

    Heike2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Rakkebu is a great place to stay. We spent 7 days and enjoyed every moment. We were able to make several trips with Morten’s snow shoes and also we were lucky and saw the Northern lights (spectacular!). You can watch it from inside the cabin, but we stayed outside and enjoyed. There is a great fireplace outside and even without Northern lights this is a good place to sit. The cabin is a place we felt home from the very first minute and Morten is a great host we like to thank for the stay and his hospitality!

    Christina2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! Views were fantastic! Saw the Northern Lights from the cabin. It was so cozy and comfortable. Had everything we needed. Easy drive to Tromso and airport. Highly recommend!

    Meredith2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Morten place is fantastic there is everything and more that you need. Very cosy and comfortable. Loved the outside fire area. Which if the showing of the northern lights..would have been fantastic That was the only disappointment would definitely recomend. Thanks Jill and co

    Jill2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at this lovely house for 5 nights and it was just perfect. The house is super cosy and the sauna is perfect for the cold and dark winter days. It is a quite and extremely beautiful area - just perfect if you want to relax. It's only a short drive to Tromsø if you want to explore the city. We really enjoyed our stay and were lucky to see the northern lights in front of the house. We can highly recommend this place.

    Katharina2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very friendly host. Reacted asap on questions. Everything you need in the cottage. Very quiet and cosy.

    Georg2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Morten’s cabin is perfect for Northern Lights viewing, only 15 minutes from Tromsø airport. Comfort? The underfloor heating and wood stove make this a very toasty place to stay and the wifi is Netflix-good.

    Guy2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Morten’s cottage was beyond expectations. Location was superb. It far enough to free from light pollution for northern light. Amenities is amazing, heated flooring, sauna , snow shoes, sled, plenty of logs for fireplaces. Kitchen is well equipped. Thanks for taking time to receive us during our arrival. Would certainly recommend anyone without a doubt.

We were blessed to see the lights 5 nights out of 7. We had a great view of the local wildlife including White-tailed eagles and Seals. Highly recommend!

We have a big bathroom with shower, toilet and a hot sauna. 3 bedrooms for 6 people. Please read and follow the house rules

  • This cabin is amazing. So comfortable and beautiful views. We enjoyed the peace and comfort it provided.

    Kathy2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great hosts, helping us out in a tough situation. A great spot to get a feel for rural Norway, without being too far away. Nice and dark location - we saw the northern lights almost every night!

    Elisabeth2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin is beautifull located out of the centrum of tromso. Because of this it is easy to view the northern lights from the house! Which we where lucky enough to view! The beds are good and soft, the fire place makes it cozy and warm and the water from the shower is good and hard! There are lots of suppliece for cooking and all, it is clean and elin response fast! Al in al a good place to stay.

    Bob2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    Quentin2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • You can see the aurora in the garden for two days when you come to Elin's home! It's really warm and lucky! Home is warm! Kitchen supplies and food are readily available! The shower room is large and there is also a Mini sauna! The location is about 30-40 minutes from the airport by car. It's a little far away, but because you can see the aurora! There is also a chasing Aurora bus to the garden! The house faces the sea! It's really comfortable and beautiful! Elin also responded very quickly! The great journey begins in Tromso!

    Dongxian2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed and from the moment we opened the door we knew this was the perfect place with a perfect host. It was spotless and the facilities excellent. Everything was as described. During our stay we almost paid to go on a Northern Lights hunt but didn't. So glad we didn't as that same night out came the lights exactly over the cabin and it was spectacular. Nothing blocked the display from where the cabin is situated. Seeing the lights being the purpose of our trip combined with the cabin and host we have no hesitation in highly recommending both.

    Mark2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Elin is a very attentive and responsive host. His chalet is very cozy, super well equipped with a magnificent view of the surroundings. From your living room, you can stay warm and scrutinize the northern lights. It was a great experience to celebrate Christmas in this beautiful Norwegian chalet. To do again !!!

    Beryl2019-12-26T00:00:00Z

    Skaret Lodge welcomes everyone to stay at our high-end cabins with 4 bedrooms, fully equiped kitchens, living rooms and the beautiful wild northern Norwegian nature right outside your door. It is the perfect place to start your MTB adventure and fresh water fishing in the summer months and the northern lights hunting from September until March.
    The cabins are located in the mountains about one hour drive from Tromso Airport. With close to no light pollution it is the perfect place to watch the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). From right outside the front door of your very own cabin you might see the spectacular show from our "Lady Aurora". Eventhough many people think January and February are the best months to see the northern lights, most people living up here in the north regard mid September to the end of october and March as the best periods.
    In addition to the three units we have, there are a few other privately owned cabins as well. You might walk into a few neighbors if your outside. They don't bite so don't be afraid to say hello ;)

    Cabin on Ringvassøya. Only 40 min car drive from the airport. Dark location to see the Northern Lights. You have to got your own car or rent a car. I recommend a all-weel driv 4x4 car in the winter. Fantastic sea-view with nature bluntly. Surrounded by beautiful mountains. Good hiking opportunities. Ski in/out. Excellent base for touring summer/winter. See Visit Tromsø for Arctic Adventures. Also see the bottom of the page in my Guide
    Cabin at Bjørnskar on Ringvassøya. Three bedrooms with a total 5 beds. Heat in the floor in the hallway/bathroom. Shower, toilet and washing machine. Towel. Kitchen with stove, dishwasher, fridge/freezer. Kettle and Waffle iron. Corner sofa. Large terrace. Heating using electricity. No fireplace. Huge selection of DVD movies. No Wifi. But 4G coverage. XBox one available. In summer it is bright around the clock. But because of the high mountains you don't see the midnight sun from the cabin, but one doesn't have to go far to experience it. It is possible to go on a mountain hike up to the Bjørnskarvatn. There are also opportunities to go on several top trips nearby. In the winter time if you are lucky with the weather this is the place to be able to experience the Northern lights at its very best. Try winter activities, tobogganing, skiing, and STIGA Snowracer are available for free. Would you like to get away from the bustle and the rush of the cities, to relax in tranquil surroundings this is the place to be. If you are lucky you can get to see different animals.

  • The experience is very good, will refer to my friends in case of they travel to Tromsø! And I’d like to stay here again! Thanks Irene:)

  • A great place to stay! The cabin in clean, modern and cosy. Saw the northern lights 2 nights out of the 4 that we stayed. Irene is a great host, would definitely stay again.

    Diana2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice accommodation 40 km east of Tromsø. Very clean and top equipped. We had just 5 nights and days for relaxing and northern lights viewing. A lot of snow and a lot of Fun in the days and we had the chance to see northern lights on three nights directly above our cabin. Absolutely wonderfull. We had a great Time and like to thank our host Irene for the wonderfull cabin.

    Rüdiger2020-02-05T00:00:00Z

    Venkat2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great cabin in a very quiet and natural area. The cabin had everything we needed, even some sleds for the kids and an Xbox were there. Irene responded very fast to our questions and gave us nice tipps about northern lights and the road conditions.

    We welcome you to a small but charming Island. If the aurora is what you seek then Vengsøya is the place to be! Just a small hike and you're surrounded in complete darkness. All cabins have excellent sea view and a chance for aurora spotting right outside your window. The ferry to Vengsøy is at Belvik, around 30min from the airport. The ferry ride to Vengsøy also takes 30min, We will pick you up at the airport and take you back after your stay. Please see the last pic for ferry schedules.
    staying on vengsøya is an unique chance to see the outskirts of Tromsø. The Island is remote and if what you seek is nature, privacy, northern lights or fishing then this is the place to be. The Island is also very dark in the evenings with the only streetlights on the road. This makes it very easy to spot the aurora when you only have to walk 500m from the cottages to get away from any strong light. There is also a general store for any necessities just 500m from where you will be staying. If you're interested in watching the northern lights or just fish in the middle of the sea then we will gladly take you out with one of our motorboats. We also invite you to see vengsøyfjorden, a beautiful fjord experience by boat. Please contact me for this. If you can prove that you can drive a boat we will let you rent one for 1000NOK per day, we have a total of 6 engine boats. If you want a guide we will add an additional 500NOK each hour. We also have two mountaintraces with different difficulties (Vengsøytinden and vengsøytravesen), the latter we highly encourage caution as it may be dangerous for any adventurous group/person. We will show you both traces by car and guide you in the right direction. Both traces are also marked so you won't get lost. There is also a fishery right on the side of where you will live.
    As you probably red above, Vengsøya is a stretched society with only 100 people, this makes the neighbourhood very quiet and relaxing. The houses around are built as traditional norwegian houses, from wood and in different colours.
  • A place of charm at the end of the world (in winter at least). Apparently in summer much more people (fishermen) but for those seeking calm, in winter, it's great (20 'boat access). We recommend

    Michel2019-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Frank was a fantastic host who went out of his way to make sure we had a great stay whether it was driving us around the island or calling the local supermarket to open for his guests. In the winter time, there is not much to do on the island but it was still nice to relax and the views were stunning.

    Vengsøya, Troms, Norway

    Beautiful and rustic house by the sea in the countryside 1 hrs drive from the city of Tromsø. The area is great for hiking, skiing, fishing and watcing the midnight sun in the summer and aurora borealis during winter. Our guests can also book the ocean spa, with woodfired hot-tub and sauna placed on a big outdoor deck with an fireplace and a cosy indoor chill-zone, and a pier. Experienced boatpeople can rent our 17tf, 60hp boat during summer. There is a 12ft rowboat to be used for free.
    The scenery, the view, the hickingterrain, the fishing, the skiing, the midnightsun and the aurora borealis.
  • We had a great time. The house is ideally located to admire northern lights, enjoy the arctic landscape and wildlife and go for snowshoes hikes. The sauna and hot tub by the fjord are a highlight of the house.

    Caroline2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We spent wonderful holidays in Urd og Trygve's cabin. It is a very pleasant and cosy place to live and enjoy simple moment. Cabin is fully equiped and clean. Perfectly located to see auroras and reindeer from the house. Trygve sent us a note and even video to give all the tips and tricks to know how to use everythings. Very easy and reactive communication. We also went for daytrip with Trygve. Snowshoe walk, icefishing on the lake, lunch directly cooked on woodfire. It was such an amazing moment. I would recommand it.

    Etienne2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Dafjord for seven days. Prior to our trip I was in direct communication with Trygve. He provided us with amazing tips like a list of amazing restaurants (which we all tried), some amazing tour companies and beautiful hiking routes. Every question or concern were answered in a heartbeat and we felt really ready to take this trip. The house is gorgeous and properly clean. The interior was incredibly cosy and the fire place was the icing on the cake. The area is very secluded which made it possible for us to see the northern lights 5 times!! Directly next to the fjord was the amazing spa, complete with a cosy cabin, candles, a sauna and hot tub. The both provided us with a detailed instruction video on how to use it and during the stay we were welcome to send them a message when we could not find something or did not understand how it worked. The response was immediate and very helpful. We saw reindeer walking on the roads and somewhere by the spa you can maybe catch a glimpse of Otto the otter. This week was the most magical experience out of our lives, the beauty and vast nature stole my heart and Trygve and Urd made us feel so very welcome. We will be back again very soon. Thank you for everything and so much more!

    Romario2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Probably the best Airbnb house ever. It was simply INCREDIBLE. The communication was excellent and we were helped very quickly with everything. The house is perfect. To relax and just switch off. Not to be surpassed in comfort. We are blown away and are already planning our next stay. If you travel to tromsö you should live here. You will not be disappointed.

    Ottmar2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great Location, Urd and Trygve are perfect hosts. They are very nice and super responsive. We have been there for 7 days with two families and enjoyed the arctic winter, preferably in the sauna. A great place to enjoy nature and relax.

    Stefan2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • As a family, we had a relaxing winter week with many excursions and a special Christmas in Dafjord at the fjord. All our expectations for the house, the sauna and for experiences in arctic Norway in winter were met. Our hosts Urd and Trygve had everything well prepared and always provided us with valuable tips before and during the stay.

    Ulf2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Trygve and his wife Urd were extremely welcoming and provided us with all information we needed for our stay. We (four adults) stayed in their beautiful and cosy "cabin" for one week and would have loved to stay even longer. The location was very clean and tidy with plenty of space for relaxing. The kitchen was perfectly equiped just like at home. The cabin is mainly heated by a wood-fired oven which supports the cosy atmosphere. It is located in a very quiet spot surrounded only by few other houses and a lot of beautiful nature. Just a small street separates the cabin from the fjord shore. We definitely recommend to book the private spa area which is directly located at the fjord shore. We loved the sauna and the outdoor hot tub! Seeing spectacular northern lights while having a glass of wine in the hot tub is a memory that will last for ever! Also do not hesitate to ask Trygve and Urd for activities and trips in the surrounding area. They recommended us some very cool excursions and we went on a sailing trip with them on their own yacht. Although we were not lucky enough to see wales or orcas, we had an awesome time with them on the boat and saw northern lights at night while sailing through a breathtaking landscape. Thank you Trygve and Urd for making all this possible! We had a fantastic holiday!

    Florian2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely property if you want peace and quiet and an experience of rural life in Norway. It is not cheap but if you can afford it you will not be disappointed. We stayed in late October so snow was on the ground throughout the trip. We also had plenty of snow showers and temperatures of 1 degree to minus 14 degrees. This place would also be wonderful in the summer. The house itself is very simple, clean and comfortable. Arrival and departure were easy. The house would easily sleep 6 people and more for a family group. There is plenty of parking and space for cooking and eating together as well as places to sit by the fire in the evening. We did not try the television but the Wi-Fi signal was good. The bathroom is simple with a lovely steamer shower, it is located downstairs. Downstairs there is a bedroom which could sleep up to 4 small children or a couple and 1 or 2 children. The lounge has a day bed and two further seats which could sleep 3 or 4 more people. Upstairs there is a main loft area with a very comfortable double bed and television. This could be used as an additional lounge. Off of this are two double bed rooms. To access these you need to pass through the main loft area. I f you are a larger group it may be worth asking the owners for a floor plan to decide who sleeps where in advance. If you do decide to hire the sauna and spa it is expensive but it is a great experience. We only used it for 3 nights of our stay so the fixed price of 2500Kr averaged out as expensive plus the price of wood on top of that. If you can afford it and can organise your day for the 2-4 hours to heat the spa it is worth it, it will make the holiday even more memorable! Dependent on the time of year you travel you will need to leave at least an hour for the drive from Tromso airport. If you are not used to driving on snow leave plenty of time and take care. Your hire car will be fitted with snow tyres but consider hiring something with 4x4 as an addition, particularly if you are going out at night. There are some lovely 1-2 hour drives nearby and a petrol station / store 20 minutes away. We were blessed with a variety of weather and wildlife and saw the Northern Lights in all their glory (from the house, the spa and the nearby hill top) seals, moose and wild reindeer locally. If there is one draw back it is the staircase, which is used to access three of the 5 sleeping areas. Though traditional it is essentially a steep ladder with no rails so would be tricky for people with restricted mobility. Also take care with smaller children as the hatch is not guarded. It was no problem for us but could cause problems for some groups. Anyone needing to use the toilet in the night will need to either sleep on the ground floor or use the ladder. Otherwise, if you can afford it, this is a wonderful home to stay in. We hope to return again and will definitely visit in the winter, it is a wonderful special place. Dan & Carrie :-)

    This is a charming small house by the sea. The house is newly renovated and contains all you need for a few relaxing days; electricity, hot water, TV and comfortable beds. It is romatic for a couple. 4 bedrooms and a nice kitchen with a big table makes it possible to be a small crowd. Stunning view over the fjord gives a peaceful atmosphere. Just a short walk up the mountain behind the house leads to a magnificent view of the fjords and surrounding mountains. A small rowing boat can be borrowed.
    Dåfjord is an hour drive from Tromsø city. This cosy small village has a stunning fjord, beautiful mountains and is the best spot to see the aurora borealis. The northern light can lit up the entire fjord on the best nights. Lengter du etter: Stillhet og ro, Hav og fjell, Sol og bølgesus, Midnattsol og Nordlys - Lange turer i vakre omgivelser - Lukten av saltvann og fjære - Fiske i et fjellvann - Da må du komme hit. Her finner du alt kroppen trenger av påfyll - både fysisk og psykisk. Her finner du ro. Velkommen.
    Går man over veien på forsiden av huset er man ved sjøen. Går man andre veien kommer man opp på fjellet. Vandrer man langs veien går man i naturskjønneomgivelser langs havet. Veien slutter ca en times gåing fra huset, men man kan fortsette videre på stier.
  • We spent four nights at Ragnhild’s place and loved every single minute of our stay. The location is gorgeous and the house extremely cozy and homy. Ragnhild even spoiled us with some Christmas treats. Definitely recommend!

    Michela2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and cosy house with a breathtaking view.

    Stefan2019-02-13T00:00:00Z

    Philipp2018-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • It is a wonderful place. We only stayed 3 nights but loved our stay. It is best to go shopping in Tromsø and then enjoy the calm, serenity and incredible view of the location. We went snowshoeing and slept very well (the beds are very comfortable). thank you for everything

    Brigitte2018-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Ragnhild is very kind. We lost our drive license before areiving to Tromso, and she came to the airport to help us. During our staying there, she was very quick at replying to us. The cabin is perfect for a family or a group of friends to stay. The location is very nice as well. We can see the See from the window and enjoy the northern light outside the house every night. BTW, a car is needed to get to the cabin and do some shopping.

    Ji2017-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Ragnhild's wonderful home. It was clean, spacious, and in a fantastic location. We saw an incredible showing of the Northern Lights over the water and stayed nice and warm inside during the chilly afternoons and nights. I'd definitely recommend this house for nature lovers!

    Bright and cozy house located in the small village Dåfjord about 60 minutes (60 km) driving from Tromsø Airport. The house is at the end of a road surrounded by sea, high mountains and forrest, which makes this the perfect place if you want a quiet and peaceful holiday. From the balcony you will have a beautiful view of the fjord where you can watch the Northern lights and sometimes spot whales. Would recommend renting a car in Tromsø since public transportation to the area is poor.

    This is a beautiful cabin/house in a rural environment where the sound of cars and trams are non-excisting. Instead, enjoy the sounds from birds and the waves slamming. This place got built in 2002 where we wanted to have the luxury, like for example, be speared of having to wash everything by hand but still maintain the cabin feeling. However the best with this place is, see the sunset going down by the horizon while taking a bath in our jacuzzi! Or the NORTHERN LIGHTS in the winter time
    The Cabin is located 30 minutes drive from Tromso airport. From there you will be taken out by boat for 20 minutes to the location. It is also possible to do a 2 hour hike that takes you along the water line and continues in the woods to then again bring you to the trail of the little cottage village that will take you to the cabin. This hike is very beautiful and a great way to be out in nature. NOTE! if weather conditions are so bad that we will not have the capability to take guest by boat guest will have to do the 2 hour hike. If weather conditions are so bad that there will not be any way of getting out to the cabin MyCabinNo do not account responsible for the cancellation and there will not be any compensation for finding a new accommodation. Deposit will be returned.
    What makes this place unique is its presents in nature. It has ocean view, beaches, midnight sun, hikes to fishing water and hikes to mountain tops with spectacular view.

  • Wow. What an amazing Airbnb. Vengsøy is a beautiful, small island that’s perfect for a couple of days relaxation if you live in the city. The cabins are nicely furnished, well equipped and cosy. And the welcome from Maria and Nils was top too. Thanks for a brilliant few days. I hope to be back soon!

    Rhys2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had such an amazing time here. We came to see the Northern lights and were lucky to see them 3 out of the 4 nights we stayed. The cabins are lovely - warm, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and lots of lovely small touches. The shop across the road is well stocked, full of spices and anything you might need to make a decent meal. Nils brought us robes and towels to use with the hot tub. Overall an outstanding stay - we could happily have stayed even longer!

    Ashley2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • The lodges that have been developed by Maria and Nils are lovely and are in such a beautiful and tranquil location. My fiancee and I had a fabulous time and will most definitely be returning. Absolutely first class from start to finish! Thank you :-)

    Jonathan2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing!!!!! Hospitality is the best. So extremely caring, helpful and quick. Cabin is cosy, comfortable and everything you need. Location is fab to escape the hustle and bustle of everything. Not too difficult to access and the food shop is right across the road. For those planning to use the jacuzzi, suggest you bring some dressing gowns and footwear with you. We absolutely loved our stay and would go back in a heart beat! Book it!

    Vanessa2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great cabin, lovely interior and nice and warm! Stunning views. The ferry is very easy and reliable. Maria rang us to check we were ok following a bad storm leading to a road closure. We went up to the football pitch for the best view of the lights- although they weren’t very strong when we were in Norway.

    Jacquie2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay. It’s a cute and cozy cabin in a strikingly beautiful landscape. They hosts were super helpful and accommodating. They gave great advice for local hikes and made sure we had everything we needed. Thanks again Maria and Hallvard.

    Phillip2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had two absolutely wonderful days at Vengsøy Rorbuer. An absolutely magical place to come. We got help with ferry times and tips for trips in the area and messages and tips for action regarding opening hours at the local shop. Although it might be a bit steered to travel to an island this way, it is well worth it! The cabins are large, clean, modern and functional. Everything is thought of! There is access to the basics: coffee, tea, oil, spices, and the rest we shop at the food nook which is just across the road. The people on the island are welcoming and the scenery is amazing. We were given snowshoes by the hosts, which gave us a very unique experience as we made our way to Vengsøytinden in glorious winter weather without a wind blow! Both evenings were spent in the Jacuzzi with beautiful views of the Northern Lights and moonlight. We were lucky with the weather, but this place we think is unique and magical even in inclement weather. We want to return both in summer and winter. A thousand won for a truly unique and memorable experience!

    Brita2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • It’s a journey to arrive there but when you do...we had 3 nights booked but wished for a week. It’s very quiet and peaceful on the island. This is a great place to just stop. The cabin we stayed in was lovely. You can tell that much effort and care was put into these cabins, everything was high quality. Maria was a great host and super responsive firstly during the booking process and also during our stay.

  • The house is surrounded by nature, by a lake. It is very comfortably furnished, with sauna and massage bath, fireplace and the largest fridge I have ever seen. Directly on the lake is a small hut where you can make a fire. Our landlords welcomed us with cake, the fridge was well filled, the wood in the fireplace already layered. We felt very welcome and enjoyed our stay very much. The trip from Tromsoe to the house took about one and a half hours in winter. We were advised by Steve to go shopping near the airport. The nearest shop can be reached from the house in about half an hour. We were there over the turn of the year. Accordingly, it was dark most of the daytime, only about four hours of dim light, very great mood. The lake was frozen, we had a lot of snow (about 30 cm fresh snow). The road was always easy to drive. The snowplower even cleared the driveway to the house.

  • it was the best choice to stay with Maria during our travel to Tromsø. We were afraid of driving and catching the ferry, but it wasn’t problematic at all. Taxi for 6 persons costs around 1000 nok and the ferry is for free. On the way we saw reindeers :D we don’t recommend renting a car just to get there, because on the island there aren’t many roads to drive. Cabin was tidy, stylish and very comfortable. View is amazing and worth any penny :D the hosts were great as well. Helpful with organising taxi, jacuzzi, tracks. Thank you Nils for answering so many questions and drinking Zubrowka with us :D he arranged jacuzzi for us and gave us good tip, where to see Northern lights. Btw we could see there big and long aurora :D and in Tromsø is very rare :) I highly recommend going to Vengsoya instead of staying in Tromsø and paying for a 1 day trip to see the lights. We experienced beautiful adventure there. Best greetings guys :)

  • We had a wonderful time at the cabin on this remote island. Maria and her father were great hosts and made us feel very welcomed. The communication was fast and easy. The location of the house is really nice and the house was very clean. We took a bus to the ferry, as we wanted to save some money. You only have to change one bus from Tromsø city center. We would recommend everyone to stay at Marias cabin and would definately come back again.

  • Such a nice place for one or many days ! This cabin is very quiet, like the island ! Not small at all (we were two, the cabin is for 6), very well designed and tastefully decorated, there is everything you need ! Maria payed attention to every little details. I can’t speak about the view from the window, amazing. Finally we were lucky to enjoy the hot tube outside with the great view ! I recommend ! Thanks for all Maria

    Vengsøya, Troms, Norway

    We welcome you to a small but charming Island. If the aurora is what you seek then Vengsøya is the place to be! Just a small hike and you're surrounded in complete darkness. All cabins have excellent sea view and a chance for aurora spotting right outside your window. The ferry to Vengsøy is at Belvik, around 30min from the airport. The ferry ride to Vengsøy also takes 30min, We will pick you up at the airport and take you back after your stay. Please see the last pic for ferry schedules.
    staying on vengsøya is an unique chance to see the outskirts of Tromsø. The Island is remote and if what you seek is nature, privacy, northern lights or fishing then this is the place to be. The Island is also very dark in the evenings with the only streetlights on the road. This makes it very easy to spot the aurora when you only have to walk 500m from the cottages to get away from any strong light. There is also a general store for any necessities just 500m from where you will be staying. If you're interested in watching the northern lights or just fish in the middle of the sea then we will gladly take you out with one of our motorboats. We also invite you to see vengsøyfjorden, a beautiful fjord experience by boat. Please contact me for this as we can discuss a price. We also have two mountaintraces with different difficulties (Vengsøytinden and vengsøytravesen), the latter we highly encourage caution as it may be dangerous for any adventurous group/person. We will show you both traces by car and guide you in the right direction. Both traces are also marked so you won't get lost. There is also a fishery right on the side of where you will live.
    As you probably red above, Vengsøya is a stretched society with only 100 people, this makes the neighbourhood very quiet and relaxing. The houses around are built as traditional norwegian houses, from wood and in different colours.
  • Frank is an amazing host, very kindly and generous ! A beautiful place to stay, to see Northern lights or to climbing into the mountains !! It was too short ! I would definitely recommend this place !

  • Frank is one of the kindest host that we have ever met. He went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. We highly recommend staying with Frank! His cabins are very comfortable with all the things that you will need for a comfortable stay.

  • One of the best places I have ever stayed in. The house is beautiful, hosts are kind and helpful, kitchen is amazing. We were even able to see the Northern Lights from our balcony... It was an incredible experience.

  • Perfect for seeing the northern lights when there are some because back away from the city and little visual pollution
