“Fantastic cabin in beatyful surroundings”
Reviewed 13 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Because of a businesstrip combined with full hotels in Vadsø, I ended up at Ekkerøy. What a beautyful place!! I really enjoyed my stay in a wonderful cabin, and in surrounding to die for! I only wish I had more time to enjoy nature and wildlife. Maybe next time...
This was really an upgrade from a stay at a hotel in the city, and not too far from the city centre an airport.
I really recommend a stay here!!

We had a great stay in a luxurious
apartment beside the Arctic Sea. For birdwatchers and nature enthusiastics, as we are, the place is perfect. Great view to the sea and bird cliffs, beautiful surroundings, interesting local history, friendly people. We were really satisfied with all.

“Excellent, but not for everyone”
Reviewed 8 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

If you love it (like we do) to come down and if its quiet, then Ekkerøy Holiday Houses is a great place to be. We lived in the Emely House for 7 nights, from februar to march. There is all you need, it feels like home BUT it is simply - that was great for us.
At this time there was "low season" - we were alone. We go around the island and waiting for the northern lights. Ingjerd called a friend (Vidar) and we did a husky tour.
Beside the house is a sauna - just for 2 but a great experience.
So all over it was perfect for us and the host was always nice.

“Very good place”
Reviewed 23 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Some months ago, with a couple of friends and my family (my wife and my daughter), we envisage a trip in Norway. We all are impassioned by bird watching.
Varanger quickly becomes the privileged destination and Ekkeroy occupies a central position between Nesseby and Hamningberg.

Thanks to internet, we found the concerning location (Ekkeroy Holiday House). The appartement is perfect for us and well equipped. For a first trip in Norway, the reactivity of Ingjerd gives confidence.

On the spot, there is no bad surprise. All is completely in conformity and even better ...
We live our dream ;-)
