As other reviewers have said lovely location, clean and spacious accommodation, very cosy and warm. Andreas was very welcoming and helpful...and we thank him for the emergency chocolate bar fix!
Step out onto your own deck right on Fjord and excellent location to view the Northern Lights. You can even wake up at night and check on them from your bedroom window overlooking the fjord! We saw them out on two nights, during our four night stay.
We stayed here in mid Feb with significant snow (for Brits) and some winds. Despite the fairly remote location some 35km from Tromso airport, we were astounded at how regularly and well the roads were cleared including the minor road to Lauklines. We only had a small hire car (Polo) which was fitted with winter tyres and this coped admirably with the road conditions, which are totally unlike anything you will see in UK...usually! A car will certainly add flexibity to your stay here. Do not be concerned about distances from Tromso city to here.
We would certainly return to Lauklines and would heartly recommend it to anyone else wanting a very special winter or summer location for their stay in Tromso area.
