Part of our nordic tour, we included Kirkenes in our itinerary and decided on Sollia and we were glad we made that decision as it turned out to be a wonderful stay!
Forget hotels in town...if you want a slice of peace and waking up to spectacular winterscape then Sollia Gjestegard is the place. Run by the wonderfully warm and humorous couple Einvind and Jorunn, along with their team Geir, Trine and Christina, their cabins were a real delight! Modest but cosy and equipped with what we needed including perfectly heated rooms and shower with surprisingly good water pressure (much needed!), we thoroughly enjoyed trekking and exploring the forest behind the cabins. And playing in the snow! Fresh, sugary powder!!!!
Best of all, as I thought, it was secluded enough to catch the Northern Lights! And we did...lovely experience!
We didn't feel a need to travel out of the area and only did when we signed up for an activity. All meals were taken care of by the talented chef Einvind and were absolutely delicious!
Pity their beautiful restaurant on the lake was closed for winter, but it'll be another reason for us to visit again.
Thank you to the lovely people there, we had a beautiful and unforgettable experience!
