We enjoyed our stay at Sollia and had we been given better accommodation it would have been perfect. The Staff were lovely and so were the owners. We travelled with another couple and had a small unit each with a kitchenette and sofa etc. Beds comfortable and everything very clean but badly designed. If you didnt close your bedroomdoor you...

We arrived in Kirkenes for a week of Northern lights (at that stage we were just keeping our fingers crossed) and were booked into Sollia for a couple of nights. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by Ann and a most welcomed evening meal before heading to our cabin apartment, when we looked up and there was our first Aurora... More

Better than expected stay in Arctic Norway thanks to a relaxed welcoming place, with great food and friendly staff. The dog team ride was a bonus and the enthusiastic and knowledgable Trina and Lars made it much more interesting. Of course the big plus was seeing the aurora many times for 2 out of 3 nights thanks to the staff... More

We started our Aurora Borealis hunt from Tromso, Hurtigruten Cruise brought us to Honningsvag and Kirkenes. We picked a very nice place to stay. Although we could no longer see the northern light after three encounters, we enjoyed our stay at the Sollia very much. The golden autumn scenery was breath catching. The owner is a nice couple: Einvind and... More

We stayed two nights in one of the rustic cottages with our teenagers. The cottage had a kitchenette, which was very convenient. The beds were very comfortable. We had a delicious breakfast in the main building both days, meeting fellow travelers for lovely conversations. We had dinner at the restaurant on the lake, freshly prepared, beautiful view. We had brought... More

Sollia Gjestegård is run by a lovely, hospitable couple who also run the excellent Gapahuken Restaurant, offering surprisingly delicate French-inspired cooking in the middle of a beautiful landscape on the Russian border. Peaceful views on a lake from the restaurant and the cabins, nice outdoor jacuzzi and fun husky safari. Clean, quiet, idyllic – I can only recommend the place... More

We had a very pleasant stay at Sollia. Be aware that the weather can be fickle - towards the end of June we had freezing rain and snow, never saw the sun or northern lights. It is right across the road from a lake, with Russia on the opposite shore. You can hike the dog sled trails in the summer.... More

I stayed at Sollia Gjestegard for just a few days, as I thought it looked like the perfect location to get some time away from things - and I couldn't have been more right. Welcomed on the first night at the airport, I was driven to the guest house, and enjoyed a meal upon arrival. The following day I took... More

My sister and I had a great time here. We travelled with Simply Sweden who booked us a 4/5 birth cabin. The bedrooms were small but adequate. There was a good size lounge with a kitchen area. There was a wood burning stove and electric heaters so we were very warm. We watched the Winter Olympics on the television from... More

We came over the Russia/Norway border (from Murmansk) and some 500 metres after the Norwegian post found this very comfortable guest house, overlooking a lake shared by both countries. A most welcome oasis of peace, with super friendly staff, comfortable huts, and pleasant home cooking (assuming you eat reindeer at home). Many Norwgian towns are very attractive, but Kirkenes is...
