“Very good place”
Reviewed July 22, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Some months ago, with a couple of friends and my family (my wife and my daughter), we envisage a trip in Norway. We all are impassioned by bird watching.
Varanger quickly becomes the privileged destination and Ekkeroy occupies a central position between Nesseby and Hamningberg.

Thanks to internet, we found the concerning location (Ekkeroy Holiday House). The appartement is perfect for us and well equipped. For a first trip in Norway, the reactivity of Ingjerd gives confidence.

On the spot, there is no bad surprise. All is completely in conformity and even better ...
We live our dream ;-)

“A fabulous place to stay, with beautiful views of the sea on either side”
Reviewed June 16, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was a fabulous place to stay. It had all of the facilities you need, plus an outdoor sauna. The location is amazing, the house lying on a sandy strip, with views over the sea from either side of the house. When we arrived late in the evening, there were six Sea Eagles sitting on the beach behind the house and, from just outside the house, you could see Black-throated Divers, Long-tailed Ducks, and huge numbers of Kittiwakes being chased by Arctic Skuas. The house is pretty close to Vadso, where you can get food, and which is a famous site for Steller's Eiders & King Eiders. The accommodation is well situated for exploring the Varanger area and the area north to Hamningberg (the last part of the drive there is amazing). Ingjerd, who runs the accommodation, was very helpful and friendly.

“Beautiful, clean and cosy - could not ask for more.”
Reviewed June 4, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was a guest house we wanted to pick up and take home.
After receiving a warm welcome, we got to the house and it took our breath away. A beautiful, traditional wooden cottage on Ekkeroy island, a stones throw from the sea and looking out onto a colony of 20,000 kittiwakes.
The house was fully equipped and very cosy and comfortable. It truly was a home from home.
We can't wait to go back!

Reviewed June 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

An authentic and beautiful house on Ekkerøy - with everything you need to have a comfortable holiday. A nice and serviceminded host. The perfect place to explore the Varanger peninsula, or for simply being on Ekkerøy in harmony with nature. Amazing.

“Excellent - ecological ethos, location and facilities. Recommended.”
Reviewed April 9, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I strongly recommend the self-catering accommodation here: classy yet homely, with wonderful views over the fjord to the north and south. The owners' ethos is strongly environmental, the walls are coverd in local history and the shelves replete with visitor information.
