A verry special place. Not for the ordinary run of people, but for those who seek quietnes, rest and tranquillity, but also are a bit more practical than the ordinary run of people.
If you are still interested I have some more information. I suppose you are arriving by car.
From the end of the road there is 1,5 km til Andsletta. From the parking place there is a cross country path to the house. (20 min), At arrival and departure I will be there and give you transport assistance by boat , give you a hand to install you and give some useful information.
But you need some basic information to evaluate if the place is what you want. It is a fantastic nature out there. Good for hiking, not flat and easy, but it gives you the most spectacular views when the weather is good.. (HM Quin Sonja have walked a hiking path there).
The wildlife are very many and white tailed sea eagles can be observed daily, seal, king eagle are also observed and there are at least 3 otter families in the area.For the kayak people the region is an eldorado. (Artic Sea Kayak Race are arranged in the region every year), and you can have some nice trips with the boat that belongs to Andsletta. There are fish in the fjord for a nice dinner and for those who can there are sea trout also. If you are bringing a dog it is ok, the house are surrounded by a fence to keep the sheeps outside.
- To bee comfortable and able to do outdoors activities I will recommend a sporty dressing with good shoes. I have to admit we do not allays have midnight sun from a cloudless sky, we are in the arctic with the Norse sea at our doorsteps. - A food shop is "close", but you have to walk the path to the parking place and from there it is a 10 min drive to the shop. . Power is from a 220 volts aggregate if necessary, but most demands are satisfied by the 12 volt solar powered system. It gives light and charges mobile phones etc. It is good coverage for mobile phones (Telenor) By the way: it is light all day/night and the midnight sun is often a guest.
- It is a gas stove and a gas refrigerator and a gas heated shower. A good old wooden stove gives a good heating and is good for cooking too. There are no TV (Good forbid) washing machine or dishwasher there.
The place offers a comfortable living for up to 8 persons
- it is 4 bedrooms, 3 room with 2 single beds an one with a double bed.
A 14" boat with a 10 hp outboard motor is for rent at 200.- a day + fuel.
Interaction with guests
I will be present at arrival an departure. Renting out the place for less than 3 days will just give me a lot of stress, so 3 days are minimum.
