I stayed here recently with my husband and two adult sons. We absolutely loved it. You really could not find a more beautiful location. There is something very special about this place that is difficult to put into words! When I looked out over the fjord at the beauty of the scenery it almost brought me to tears on several occasions. The cabin itself was large, warm, very comfortable and well equipped. The nearest supermarket which is a fair way off is really excellent - puts Waitrose and M&S to shame! As there are no restaurants nearby we cooked each night and even invented a new recipe which is Cod in Icing Sugar. This was entirely unintentional - the Norwegian word for flour is very similar to icing sugar and I bought the wrong product!
While we were there we went deep sea fishing twice with Marcus from Arctic Fishing Adventures and that was great fun. We caught lots of different fish and the boat was very spacious and comfortable. I would thoroughly recommend this holiday as an excellent escape from the rat race.
