8/10 Very good

Peaceful and Northern Lights!
Amazingly peaceful place to stay. Food excellent and got to see Northern Lights on 2 nights! Really enjoyed our stay. Only let down was the 'queen' bed in the cabin wasn't very comfortable.

8/10 Very good

Nice stay
Very nice stay. We were in the Viking suite which is by the stable so the animals are outside the window. On one night the sheeps started making a lot of noise at 4am which kept us awake and was very frustrating, but the other nights were fine. All other amenities such as sauna jacuzzi etc are charged extra so we didn’t use them. The place is beautiful and we saw the northern lights just outside our room!! Breakfast is lovely as well.

Absolutely loved this place. Amazing room, with direct access to all the animals. Great location for relaxing, chilling with the animals, moose spotting and of cause northern lights spotting. I was very fortunate to see them whilst being in the hot tub. Breakfast every morning was lovely. Chia pudding, oat pudding, their own hen eggs, soft bread, cheese and butter. They have an espresso machine which provided great coffees. The owners were very friendly and took interest in our stay and our lives. They also gave great tips on what to do and what the weather was up to. They also have the cutest little dog ever! A big thank you :-)

10/10 Exceptional

Where to begin!!! The property is beyond charming with breathtaking vistas from atop the hill, perfect for stargazing and catching a glimpse of the Aurora. Maria and her little shadow Ebla were warm and inviting and Silvia made the most incredible food we have ever tasted. The environment that the entire fantastic staff creates promotes total and complete relaxation. If you are light hunting, this is the perfect place to do it, as even if you aren’t lucky enough to experience them, your trip will not be a disappointment. This is a magical place, and staying in cottage #1 absolutely filled my heart with joy to be able to open the window and be greeted by all of the beautiful animals that reside right outside of your door. Loved Loved Loved it.

A perfect setting for a holiday, super clean, the most delicious breakfast and dinners! We were blown away with it. We loved that you had to take off your shoes, made it feel more relaxed and homey. The views were to die for, the animals so sweet and fluffy this time of year. They’re very accommodating and nice to English speakers. We’d come back right away if we could.

Amazing property and delicious food
Amazing space and delicious food. Would have been easier if the long driveway and walkway had been salted with so much ice, but otherwise a wonderful stay.

Hygge and comfortable stay
A lovely stay for us, unfortunately missed out on spectacular Northern lights show by one day :( Very cool, comfortable and hygge experience. Only slight gripe is there are a few hidden costs that could be included or packaged up- eg pay 250NOK each time for sauna, 150NOK for snow shoes hire etc. Considering this is Norway though, we can say that overall this was a very pleasant experience! Would recommend.

6/10 Good

Great: the dinner we had of curry baked cod was magnificent! We also really enjoyed the common area with very comfortable sofa for relaxing. And the snowshoeing was fantastic! Great opportunity to get some exercise and see the countryside. Overall the location overlooking the water and mountains was lovely! Good: breakfast was nice but would have loved some scrambled or fried eggs instead of hard boiled. Ok: the beds were very basic and you could hear the springs underneath when you moved. It did not make for a very good nights sleep. Disappointing: the cost of the sauna and jacuzzi was exorbitant. 250 NOK for jacuzzi per person per session was shocking to me. The only saving grace for us was that no one else wanted jacuzzi that day so we had it to ourselves. The owners were nice to open it at 1 pm upon our request, instead of the usual 9 pm. There was no auroral activity during our stay so we preferred afternoon jacuzzi before dinner instead of late after dinner.
