“A perfect home away from home in magical Arctic Norway”
Reviewed 24 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

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.

“Magnificent stay on Ekkerøy”
Reviewed 14 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

My wife and me stayed 4 days in the modern and nice Bird View Apartment on Ekkerøy. Perfect situated on the Varanger Peninsula, -a paradise for bird watchers. With panoramic view against the bird cliff we also saw eagles and gyrfalcon, and at night exciting aurora borealis.
I am sure we will be back again!
Highly reccommended!

Reviewed 7 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

It was already the third time,that we came to Ekkerøy and definately NOT the last! The first two times we stood at the old "schoolhouse". Once in March and once in May. And this time, in june, at the "Puffin"! Everything you need is there and if not, Ingjerd gets it immediately!
There is only one thing to say: IF YOU ARE EXHAUSTED, BURNED OUT AND TIRED OF WORK AND LIFE, JUST VISIT EKKERØY FERRIEHUS!! THIS PLACE IS HEALING!!!!
