I made a reservation for this "Sjous" in January, in order to assure me a pleasant stay in this beautiful place. When I arrived, after a rather long trip, the receptionist at first gave me a key, probably thinking I was someone else, then decided to check on the computer.

We loved staying at Ringstad, both Ian and Ann Karina were incredibly hospitable and helpful. The steak that Ann Karina cooked for us was absolutely delicious and so tender. The location was magic too and we were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights thanks entirely to Ian, who very kindly knocked on our door one night to alert us.... More

Ian and Ann Karina you both made our visit to the beautiful Vesteralen a big success. As you both know, we had the worst weather in years, but thanks to your hospitality and making every effort to make these days to a success for us, we will come back. The food and views are spectacular. Gladly on our final days,... More

We had an excellent day with Ian on a sea eagle safari. He gave a thorough explanation of what we would be doing in order to maximise our understanding and enjoyment of the sea eagles. He has a lot of knowledge of the eagles, their habits and ecology. As there were two photographers on our trip, he advised on the... More

Beautiful location, excellent hosts and service and surrounded by wildlife. This really is a fantastic place to stay, with wonderful authentic Norwegian food, cosy warm rooms and overall great service. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay and discover Northern Norway at anytime of year.

A big surprise in the middle of nowhere. We really liked the reindeer goulash although it was Not on the menu but a very good advice given by the excellent waiter. The Cod was a good choice with a surprise of bacon underneath. As a dessert we had the home made apple pie with ice cream (who doesn't like ice... More

March 2013, we've just had a more than wonderful trip to Ringstad Sjohus in Vesteralen. It is a beautiful remote location to stay, cosy and clean accommodation, good food, but it was the friendly and warm atmosphere and Ian and Karina's devotion to make their guests happy which made our stay really memorable. Because of the lack of snow as... More

We spent marvelous days at Ringstad, despite the partly foggy weather. Located within a group of small islands the place is splendid. Beside of our bike tour on Bo Island we attended spontaneously a photography course with Ian, who runs the place together with his wive. He is an outstanding photographer who teached us how to leave the automatic modus... More
