Well my first trip to Norway and I certainly hope it won't be the last. We went in February 2012. Lauklines was a beautiful, clean and perfect lodge to stay in. Our trip to Norway was mainly to see the Northern Lights (which didn't disappoint) So that is why we chose Lauklines as it was in the Arctic circle and far enough away from the city so more chance of seeing the incredible Aurora. The lodge was warm, clean and had a very comfy living area and bedrooms. Andreas was so helpful and couldn't do enough for us. We stayed in the last lodge which was ideal. We were on our jetty every night looking out at the stunning views across the fjord. The fjord itself has so much wildlife we even seen a Porpoise and sea eagles. In the winter months Humpback whales come in! We had arranged transfer to and from the airport with one stop on the way to Lauklines to stock up on food/drink for our 5 nights in the lodge. (food and drink is very expensive but we knew this so we tried to take what we could over there and just buy the essentials there) We did a couple of trips, skiing, dog sledding and a Northern Lights excursion trip. All were very good.
Now onto the lights... WOW WOW WOW absolutely incredible. We seen them every night which we couldn't believe. If you do go make sure you take/hire out a DSLR camera and a tripod to get the best shots as my fiancé is a keen photographer and knows how to take long exposure photos.
Don't hesitate to go, if you want to see the lights then it is well worth the money
