Enjoyed Ekkerøy and surrounding area. The drive up the Varanger peninsula was very scenic. Really enjoyed the wood fired sauna.
Visited Ekkerøy Feriehus on a study trip for Up Norway, and was warmly welcomed by host Ingjerd who shared some of her extensive knowledge about the island’s witchcraft history and rich bird life. Stayed in one of the new bird view apartment; very comfortable and an enjoyable direct view towards the sea and bird mountain. One night is not enough. Recommended for birders and nature lovers!
Ekkerøy is the centre for all birding in the Varanger area and the Holiday House the perfect base for exploring the area. We stayed 5 days in 'Emilie', a beautifully restored, warm, spacious and well-equipped traditional house, only a few hundred meters from the Ekkerøy bird cliffs and stunning scenery all around. Ingjerd was our welcoming hostess and she runs the place with a "no problem" attitude. A 5 star experience.
Nice and excellent apartment with all comfort you need! Location is simply perfect for bird watching on Ekkeroy and along the cost line of Varanger. The apartment
Unfortunately 3 days was too short and especially this year too early (still a lot of snow on the landscape) to do all what I planned before. For sure I/we will come again and exactly to this accommodation.
Thanks for all, Ingjerd.
Ekkerøy Holiday Houses are high quality places to rent on Varanger Fjord, conveniently located only a few km from Vadsø yet in the heart of the beautiful wilderness. I have stayed here for many years and can highly recommend them.
