Lerkekåsa is a small winery iin Norway (if you can believe it). They have 4 places to stay here; one cabin and 3 winebarrels (!!!). Me and my wife stayed in one of the winebarrels and found it to be an unique experience that I can recommend with all my heart. Now, the barrels aren't spacious. You have half a meter from the door to the bed, but you really don't need anymore. We are not the most mobile of the human species and it worked out fine for us. The toilets and showers are in the main building/barn (that is changes into a big dining room with a bar). Their fruitwines are delicious. Fruits grow easily in Norway, but wines made of grape (red, white and rose) are more difficult. Now, their rose and white where good. I liked them. The red whine was very young. For me it was interesting to try it because I believe that it will be perfected in the years to come. I also hope that they can up the production to a level that they can sell it wholesale and store the wine in barrels for some amount of years. In my belief, if they continue what they are doing we will have our first really good red wine from Norway in 7-10 years. Back to the present. The service the couple that live there provides is fantastic. They are welcoming and have a warm home. And with the few beddings they have it makes for a intimate experience with winetastings, tour of the area, dinner and breakfast. I highly recommend to stay in a winebarrel if you have the chance, and I am sure it will be an experience you won't forget.

Room Tip: Get a barrel. The cabin looks cozy with an unique bed, but the barrels is an experience in itself.

A wonderful and quiet place with hosts to take care of you. We stayed in a wine barrel, not much space, but a fantastic experience. Wine tasting, evening buffet and breakfast, all very well organized. Thank you for a memorable weekend.

Truly a beautiful place to spend a night or two. We stayed in the two bedroom cottage next to the main house. The surrounding area is beautiful and peaceful, the cottage is well prepared and clean. No wifi or Internet, which actually allowed us to retire early for the night. We didnt meet the host but her children, who were very nice and friendly. Just one hiccup in the whole experience. We didnt receive any instructions as to how to get into the cottage. We arrived early and no one was around. We waited thinking the check-in time would be strictly at 16:00, but 15 minutes after, still no one showed up, we called the host and were given the instruction. So make sure to get clear instruction beforehand to avoid time wasted in waiting around. The host was very nice on the phone and in emails.

Our first encounter with the Lerkekåsa vineyard was at the Travel Fair (Reiselivsmessen) in Oslo, where we learnt about the possibility of accommodation at a wine barrel. We liked the idea much so decided to see what it feels like to be a hobbit for a night. The whole stay was truly enjoyable. Right after arriving at the farm we were warmly welcomed by the hosts who offered us a delicious carrot cake accompanied by their self-produced wine. In the evening we participated in a wine-tasting session, trying (with varying luck) to guess what kind of wine we were being served, and admired a spectacular full moon. Before leaving on the next day we once again got a chance to hand-feed a bunch of friendly hens that were emitting funny sounds while strolling around the farm. The barrel itself looked really romantic, not only from the outside but also from the inside, and was surprisingly comfy to sleep in.

i visited lerkekasa for two days with some friends. the first thing that struck me were the fluffy hens running around the lawn, as i love hens. the hostess, wenche, is a nice lady. she was very welcoming and eager to answer questions and give suggestions for places to see in the area. the vineyard itself is very modest and cute. being the northernmost vineyard in the world (so they said), it's very hard to get grapes to grow up there, but they manage somehow. the village and surrounding area, gvarv, is known for it's fruit production, and at lerkekasa they use a lot of the fresh produce available to them in making different wines. getting to taste the wines are part of the experience and included in the price! i'm a raspberry guy myself and really enjoyed their raspberry wine, never tried that before. we were a big group and had to sleep elsewhere, but the rooms there seemed really nice and unique. very traditional-norwegian-looking and comfortable+clean from what i could tell. no wifi-though, which can be nice if you're looking to escape that sort of thing and really take in the nature surrounding the vineyard (which is amazing btw), but also rough if you're suffering from smartphine addiction. tl;dr: really liked the place, the people, the price and everything surrounding it. a unique experience.
