    Additional Location Information
    The flats is situated very close to the two beaches at Ekkerøy in Varanger. From the sauna - heathen by wood - its only 50 meters to the Arctic sea where you can take a swimming trip if you like to be a viking! Its also a very rich birdlife on of the beach. The view is marvelous and you can follow the special light in Varanger from the day starts, and to the evening. In the summer time you have the midnight sun, and in the wintertime you can see the Northern Light - Aurora Borealis.
    The 2 flats are very cosy and made with love. The furnitures are mainly from 1950-60, but the beds good and modern. You have all the equipments on the kitchen for making your own food.
    Only some weeks during the summertime you have some neighbors - the rest of the year you are by yourself in the village Ekkerøy where it lives about 30 persons. The flats are in a former chapel and is a very good start for walking. You can park just beside the flats - only 1-2 meter to go the stairs.

Also apartments have smaller bedrooms ( with low ceiling on upstairs, watch out for your head! ) than... more
