I did alot of research before our trip to Tomsø and this place offered what wewere looking for. Very rarely does a place measure up to its website. This one exceeded it. The cabins are clean, perfectly equipt, two great sized bathrooms, the beds are comfy and the rooms spacious. We are a family of five and the cabin was perfect. The incredible view oof the fjord from the front rooms and upstairs bedroom and the deck made this a perfect stay for us.Although we spent as much time as possible outside enjoying the view. I loved that we could enjoy the view just as much from inside...loads of windows. If you want to splurge on the activities, there is a host of things that can keep you busy... you may just need to save up for a while. We have three little kids so our activities were low key. We did snow shoeing and kick sledging.
Sometimes the person at reception is not a 'local' so you may not get very accurate info regarding distances to things like walking paths etc. We did meet the hosts however who I think are available if you need to ask specific questions. Communication before our arrival was always prompt and informative which made it easy when travelling from abroad. This place is worth a visit, especially if you want to experience the Aurora.
