“THE perfect break!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2013

March 2013, we've just had a more than wonderful trip to Ringstad Sjohus in Vesteralen. It is a beautiful remote location to stay, cosy and clean accommodation, good food, but it was the friendly and warm atmosphere and Ian and Karina's devotion to make their guests happy which made our stay really memorable.
Because of the lack of snow as well as the rapidly changing weather conditions Ian did an outstanding job making an alternative program in which we've done and seen even more! Ian shared his extensive photographic knowledge before, during and after the photography course and took us by car and boat to stunning locations. We saw eagles, fishing villages, art, northern lights etc. and hat a lot of fun together.
We would love to come back!

A great place to stay as to both the location at the fiord and the snug, cosy, very friendly and warm atmosphere, Ian and Karina (hosts) are always devoted to guests' wishes and needs; clean and spacious accommodation, tasty cuisine; I had the opportunity to enjoy a very interesting course in photography based on Ian's expertise in taking great shots. I do recommend that place to people who like tranquility, fascinating landscapes and light (not just aurora borealis, especially in winter.

We spent marvelous days at Ringstad, despite the partly foggy weather. Located within a group of small islands the place is splendid. Beside of our bike tour on Bo Island we attended spontaneously a photography course with Ian, who runs the place together with his wive. He is an outstanding photographer who teached us how to leave the automatic modus of our cameras behind us. What a difference, when we look at our fotos before and after the stay in Ringstad.

The only positive thing was the surrounding and housing which were good and clean and that there was enough fisch.
The internet connection was very bad and the opening of pages was extremly slowly. But despite of this it cost 10€/week which is too much considering its quality( even the skype did not work properly - there was only the sound but no picture). The owner of the property was an arrogant Englishman who accused us that we have scratched his boat although we did not and he took 250€ from us because of it. So if you are going there, check the boat properly so that it can´t happen to you. And make also a photo of it so that you have some proof.(I think we were not the first who he robbed)
The weather was changeable and the waether forecast was not acctual)

Room Tip: all rooms were same - small

February 2012, Just returned from an absolutely wonderful trip to Ringstad. Ian shared his extensive photographic knowledge and took us by car and boat to stunning locations. The rapidly changing weather gave us super photographic opportunities. We saw moose across the bay from the breakfast table (food supeb too, wonderful seafood, beautifully presented) eagles in the next bay and an otter from the window. Not forgetting the northern lights .Made really welcome and Ian and Karina did everthing they could to make our stay such a memorable and enjoyable experience. Ringstad is in a fantastic location right at the waters edge and the Vesteralen Islands are stunningly beautiful and remote. Come before any one else finds it! .

We was as a group of 5 Norway Greenhorns in Ringstad Sjohus - from August 23 to September 2th. We had booked the owner Ian as guide for the first day.
It was unbelievable - first catch after few minutes - a cod 117 cm and 15 kg. Wow!! The complete result from the first day 9 cods with over 110 cm.

The team with Ian, Ann-Karina, Mickey was allways tried to help us with infos, with shopping for us and many more. With Ian you can also book kajak tours, bird, nature and photo tours.

And when you trip to ringstad - dont forget to book the breakfast - we loved it each day !!

The rooms are clean, and have all what you need for a relaxed holiday time. The boats are in perfect condition and complete with gps, plotter and fishfinders.

I will allways recommend this location to other norway fans. Specially, when you search silence and directly contact to the nature - you will a perfect place here.
And I want come back to Ringstad in 2012. Then is the halibut on the catching list.

Ringstad was T H E highlight this year. Thank you to the Ringstad Sjohus team.
