Amazing trip in December - we were very lucky to have been there when the Fjord was frozen over. We luckily got upgraded to the cabin with hot tub and sauna. We arranged transport from the airport (highly recommended) rather than driving in a blizzard.
Very well equipped cabin with a beautiful dining area, kitchen and lounge.
Woke up on the Saturday morning to a fresh fall of 50cm of snow which was amazing. Sitting in a hot tub over looking the Fjord is an experience I will not forget in a long time.
Highly recommend this experience if you want to relax, see beautiful scenery and get away from it all

we stayed for a week in august there was 12 of us adults and children ranging from 17 down to 1 year old and no one was bored the lodges are gorgeous ive never known such comfortable beds. the scenery is breathtaking the boys went on the fishing trip and brought there catch home to cook dave taught them to gut the fish ect we also hired 2 motor boats which i highly recommend we spent the full day exploring the fjords went to risor village we also saw seals on this trip which the kids loved even the 1 year old enjoyed the boats. the boys also did lots of fishing from the jetty and caught plenty of mackerel and cod the beach is small but pleasant and the walk to it is beautiful but steep the walk back is very tiring but worth it. dave and andy who seem to do everything are beyond helpful nothing is too much trouble for them. the villiage has a swimming pool and volley ball pitch which the kids loved the nearby supermarket is reasonably priced and the staff friendly but we found risor very expensive. all in all this was a fantastic holiday with plenty to do but quiet and relaxing we are going back in february and cannot wait

Room Tip: all the lodges are beautiful but if travelling in summer take insect repellant as its too humid to shut windows and the little beggars eat you alive

We certainly didn't regret our choice of location for a week's summer holiday. The lodges themselves are clean and tastefully furnished, with BBQ, outdoor patio, dishwasher and washing machine. Dave and Andy were great at suggesting things for us to do, and we had a great time on an organized boat trip, renting our own boat and going kayaking. The amenities are ideal: it has its own sandy beach, boat dock, football pitch, beach volleyball net and pool. The grocery store is a stone's throw away, and the picturesque village of Risor is a 10-minute drive. We might have liked a bit more privacy (our patio backed onto someone else's) and some more closet space, but it was definitely the right choice for our family of five.

Fantastic weather every day. The house was clean and tidy. Could have done with 2 bathrooms for seven of us. We could have done with a microwave also. Location is fantastic with just a short walk to the beautiful fjord. We had 2 boats plus mooring and the fishing was great. You need be reasonably fit for the walk back to the house. Nearby supermarket within walking distance has all you might need for basics.

We spent a week in this superb holiday village, in a luxury lodge, close to the fjord with all its attractions of fishing, boating, swimming etc. For us, the joy was the Risor Kammermusikfest and we attended concerts daily. We want to thank David Arnesen and his colleagues for their helpfulness, they made our holiday. Highly recommended, for families and groups of friends, supermarket close by is reasonably priced, and buses and taxis will get you to and from Risor.
