Et av de beste stedene i Vesterålen for å oppleve nordlyset! Stille og fredelig plass - hvor roen virkelig får senket seg. Koselig lite hus med Internett, vedfyring, og en atmosfære som bare må oppleves!
“We stayed there for 4 nights & can definitely recommend this place, if you're looking for a quiet & peaceful spot to relax. Steffen is a very sympathic and helpful host, who showed us around his farm with goats, sheep, selfbrewed beer and a very friendly poodle! :-) It's also a good place to see the northern light, if your a bit lucky with the weather!”
Helt ny Saltdalshytte leies ut med flott beliggenhet og utsikt
“As a family we spent 4 very nice and relaxing days in the cozy hut of Hilde. The view is fantastic and the stove has made the stay in the house even more comfortable. Hilde also gave us great hiking tips. It fell in the second half of October, although some snowflakes, but the weather has played along. And we could also admire a small northern light. Absolutely recommended!”
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.
“Mr. Kjell's cottage by the sea is like a fantasy, a beautiful dream. Its the most comfortable and classy wilderness cottage I have ever seen. It has running water, electricity, a warm shower and an inside toilet (a proper bathroom) and also a large fridge with even a freezer (for fish or ice cream!). You will not find any of these comforts in most wilderness cottages hosted on the internet so this place is pretty unique. Heating is thru 2 wood fired heaters in both the dining room/ kitchen and the living room. The cottage exudes class and quality from the the kitchen appliances to the rooms adorned by tasteful wall paintings and decor. The shiny wooden floors are spotlessly clean and the overall house construction is of superb quality. Everything looks brand new. Windows in all the rooms have amazingly beautiful views of the mountains and the sea. While the cottage from inside boasts the comfort, cleanliness and decor of a hotel, the moment you step outside you find yourself on a beautifully deserted sea shore full of sea birds with scenic peaks in the distance. While looking to the other side you see towering lush green mountains around you and you hear delightful chirping birds in peaceful greenery. And what's more, there are no houses for miles around! The atmosphere is really soul soothing, rather dreamy (reminded me of a scene from the famous movie 'Inception'). Its indeed a hidden gem in thousands of cottages hosted on the internet. And that's not all. Mr. and Mrs. Kjell are one of the kindest and nicest old couple. I was deeply moved by their warm welcome when on arrival I was greeted with a delicious dinner from Mrs Kjell. Mr. Kjell not only picked me from airport but also visited me later with some supplies I requested. They made every effort to make sure that I was totally comfortable, safe and enjoying the stay. Mr. Kjell also had the kindness to invite me for a day of fishing on the sea in his motor boat where we caught lots of fish. He even helped me clean the fish for dinner. Not to mention Mr. Kjell's playful and lovable dog Orion; we became friends in minutes. Mr. Kjell keeps a high power binoculars in the living room for you to observe wildlife on the sea. Some practical points to note are : 1) Being on a sea shore, it's sometimes windy outside, and on rainy days the wind can get pretty cold even in summer as you're in the Arctic. 2) The area around the place is somewhat marshy /boggy so fully waterproof (preferably long) shoes are recommended if you want take a stroll or hike around the area. 3) The boulders on the sea shore are quite slippery near the water so be careful. 4) The region experiences the beautiful midnight sun in summer so have an eye cover for sleeping. 5) Be sure to get a phone SIM which has good signals here like Telenor because mine was crap (MyCall). 6) The warm water in the shower can get suddenly cold during continuous use so note the instructions from Mr. Kjell. Although I came from a far away place, I would really wish to be at this lovely place again.”
