“Stay at Svensby Cabins and you will be in for a treat”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Stayed there with Thorbjorg and her husband, who is one of the kindest people we have met in a while. you have a lot of amenities close and at the same time you totally get the feeling of being lost in nature. Ideal for watching Northern Lights, at the top of the little hill behind the cabin there is a treck that goes into the forest, but even if you stay just right at the top you will see them, away from lights or anything else that might disturb your view of Aurora. We drove for hours trying to avoid clouds and light and we always found that coming back to the hill just at the back of our cabin was the best thing, the best view and the best experience.
There is also a Sauna, very powerful internet, opportunities to book activities for much cheaper than from Tromso through them. This old couple pretty much run the whole of Svensby and they do it delightfully well! Highly recommended!!!

Room Tip: we stayed in a small cabin, but you have bigger ones that also have a fireplace

We stayed here for 3 nights in December in the hope to see the northern lights! The location of the cabins is beautiful set just above the coast line surrounded by snowy mountains!
Owners were very helpful and both speak English which was useful.
We booked a morning dog sledding which was amazing with incredible scenery!
We were fortunate enough to see the northen lights and sat on the veranda of the cabin as they danced across the sky, very magical.
