As the other reviews say this is a lovely place to stay. Andreas the owner and his staff are very welcoming and friendly. The cabins are fantastic with a beautiful view over the Fjord. We were lucky enough to see the Northern lights from outside the front door of the cabin. A memorable and very special place.

Our 3 bedroom cabin were spacious and comfortable. The view from the open deck was very beautiful. We were fortunate to see the Northern Lights here only at Lauklines during our 14 days in Norway. Suggest to buy/cook your own food as restaurants are quite far away.
Andrea was very helpful, he shutoff all the outdoor lights so we could see the Northern
Lights better.
All six of us really enjoyed our stay at Lauklines.and highly recommend to those who wants to see the Northern Lights.

Room Tip: All cabins faced the Lake , a middle cabin will give a wider view.

Had a great 2 night stay at the beginning of February. The staff are very friendly and helpful - Trudi especially. Cabin was super, lovely views- and had all the equipment you could need, though nothing in cupboards at all so bring everything except salt and pepper. Pillows not very substantial. Did see the Northern Lights on one night - amazing. Saw eagles but just missed a mother otter and her pups the morning we left. Hope to return sometime.

Room Tip: All cabins have a pretty good view!

These cabins are very warm and cosy. We stayed at the end of Jan 2014 when the outside temp was -7*C, and inside, we were warm as toast! The views from the decking are just amazing, and we were fortunate to see the northern lights every night! just surreal and stunning. I suspect there is a micro climate here, as my weather app on my phone listed Tromso as misty,but the skies were totally clear (and free of light pollution). Hanna and Andreas are helpful and friendly, and also loaned us a plug adapter. The cabins are not 5 star luxury but are very well equipped and comfortable. I would definitely come here again!

Room Tip: Cabin 6 probably has the best views of any approaching Northern Lights. There are no supermarkets n...

We (4 of us) stayed at Lauklines over Christmas last year, in the middle of the polar night.

The cabins are very spacious, homely, well appointed and amazingly located, with backdoors that open onto a terrace that is, in fact, a pontoon on the lake.

The "mornings" of the polar night give a couple of hours of blue light (no yellows) which renders the lake and the island in front of the cabins in stark and stunning contrast. Just behind the cabins (and a little down the road) there are snow shoe trails to explore and just up from the cabins there is a satellite shop for Tromso Outdoor who will rent snowshoes and the like.

It's a fantastic location and very soul-enriching.

Undoubtedly a bit of a pain to go shopping, but there is a well appointed supermarket about 25-30 mins drive away. It's only that long because you have to drive slowly on the snow-ridden roads. A car is a definite must for this location, unless you are going to spend all your time on the water, of course.

A couple of curious things to note: the supermarkets don't seem to serve wine. They do have some beers, ciders and pear-ciders though. And apparently there is a law in Norway preventing alcohol sales after 20h00.

As soon as I saw this place I knew this is where I wanted to stay, and It absolutely lived up to every single expectation.

We arrived late in the evening, about 9.45pm after a 40minute drive (very straightforward) from Tromso airport. My hubby went in the front door but I sneaked around the back and had a few private moments with the Northern Lights RIGHT ABOVE OUR OWN PRIVATE DECK!!!!

That was just the beginning, my hubby, who had grumbled about the price (its not cheap) said immediately it was worth every single penny and apparently 'I did good'.

We booked originally based on tripadvisor reviews. The price was a bit of a hair-curler but the communication was prompt and friendly. Payment options were limited, in that you can not pay using Paypal and you have to send card details in emails or do a bank tranfer. I opted for bank transfer as I considered this the safest option but was hit with charges, both for the deposit and balance.

My sister and her partner later decided to join us for the five nights which inflated the price by three hundred pounds, so even though you rent the cabin, It is substantially more expensive if there are more of you.

The location is just superb. Like I mentioned, we had an amazing view of the lights upon our arrival and we saw them four of the five nights! We were very lucky with the weather as it was clear skies for the entire duration of our visit. The light pollution in Tromso is just completely taken out of the equation.In actual fact, several months before our visit I booked an aurora hunt with Guide Gunnar mid-way thoughout our trip. We drove into Tromso, got on the minibus and he drove us to a location very close to our cabin! We were also happy as we got some lovely photos of the aurora reflected in 'our' fjord.

The drive to the Lauklines is very easy. Please do not be put off hiring a car and driving here. I imagine some people are put off worrying about the drive but it is great fun and a real experience. It takes about 40-45 minutes to drive from the centre of town, sometimes longer. I loved the journey, the views are spectacular.

Inside the cabins are just as everyone else has described. An absolute delight. I wont go into too much detail but I will say they are very well appointed, comfortable, warm, well eqipped and a real home-from-home.You will have everything you need and things you didn't even realise you need, but you do! The bathroom floor is even heated. The beds are heavenly.

Before we arrived I e-mailed and explained that we were arriving a little late, they replied telling us not to worry and to take our time. As we arrived there was a lovely, little personalised message at reception with instruction. It was a lovely touch and we were all impressed and excited by it.

There are lots of activities you can do from the cabin and we spent two mornings on a boat trip watching whales. We loved it.

The reception is only open for a few hours a day, between 9-11am I think. Our itinerary was action packed and we were up late most evenings watching the aurora. We missed them the last few mornings so couldn't pay the outstanding balance I owed them before we left for an early flight.This resulted in further bank charges so make sure you get all the information you require from the very helpful staff as you check-in.

I would definitely recommend this accomodation, and have done, to anyone who'll listen. The setting, the views and the absolute peace is something we'll all remember. It transforms an ordinary city-break in Tromso into a real Arctic Adventure!
