Ekkerøy is the centre for all birding in the Varanger area and the Holiday House the perfect base for exploring the area. We stayed 5 days in 'Emilie', a beautifully restored, warm, spacious and well-equipped traditional house, only a few hundred meters from the Ekkerøy bird cliffs and stunning scenery all around. Ingjerd was our welcoming hostess and she runs...

Thanks Aulikki for a very nice review!

Nice and excellent apartment with all comfort you need! Location is simply perfect for bird watching on Ekkeroy and along the cost line of Varanger. The apartment Unfortunately 3 days was too short and especially this year too early (still a lot of snow on the landscape) to do all what I planned before. For sure I/we will come again...

Thanks for a very nice review and welcome back!! Best regards from Ingjerd

Ekkerøy Holiday Houses are high quality places to rent on Varanger Fjord, conveniently located only a few km from Vadsø yet in the heart of the beautiful wilderness. I have stayed here for many years and can highly recommend them.

Thanks Max for a lovely review! best regards and welcome back from Ingjerd

About the neighborhood
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...
