Guests often search for this popular amenity
Authentic and romantic lodge originally built of timber and used for the first time back in 1850 as housing for as many as 10 persons. Situated between the sea and the forest and with the northern light as only light in the dark season this might be the perfect place to enjoy North of Norway. The perfect match for a couple, but will also function very well for up to four persons. It is renovated to a modern standard in 2018, with focus on maintaining the heart and soul of the old building.

The space
It is possible to make a fire outside the lodge, while watching the northern light (if conditions).
We will help you with recommendations for activities both close to the lodge, and other activities possible to reach with car.

Born 10. may 1979 Officer in the Norwegian Coastguard. The profile picture showing me at work holding one part of a Polar Bear head. Me and my wife moved back to Kvaløya in 2010, after 9 years in Bergen. Gradually we have renovated the Lodge, and back in 2017 it was finished. The two latest years our friends on visit often have sleept over. Our good neighbors rented the Lodge for three months in 2018, during the time they renovated their own house. They where very great full. This was the equalizer to put the Lodge out on Airbnb. Our neighbors advised us to rent it out for tourists. They described the Lodge as a authentic and romantic old building with hart and soul. Living with todays modern standard with heat cables in the floor, wifi, electric, modern lightning and at the same time the old timber wood walls takeing you back to 1850. When the building originally where built, it housed a familie of 10 persons! I am very found of sports, and contributes to my sons soccer team as a trainer. Me an my wife have two kids, 7 and 10 years old. I like cross country skiing, telemark skiing (almost same as slalom), biking, and mountain biking and hiking with my familiy. If you are interested in hiking or mountain biking i can give tips on trips just outside the door of the cabin:-) Be aware, to mountain bike it needs to be customizable dry in the forest. This for not wear and tear to much on the trails. I unfortunately do not have any equipment for rent/loan. This is possible to rent i Tromsø if you are interested. Looking forward to se you :-) Please write to me if you have any questions :-)
