About the neighbourhood
Some of the flats are situated by the beaches at Ekkerøy. From the sauna - heathen by wood - its only 50 meters to the Arctic sea where you can take a swimming trip if you like to be a viking! Its also a very rich birdlife on of the beach. The view from Sea Apartments is marvelous and you can follow the special light in Varanger from the day starts, and to the evening. In the summer time you have the midnight sun, and in the wintertime you can see the Northern Light - Aurora Borealis.
The Sea Apartments are very cosy and made with love. The furnitures are mainly from 1950-60, but the beds good and modern. You have all the equipments on the kitchen for making your own food.
Getting around
Ekkerøy is a perfect place for just hiking close to the sea, and look for all the birds in the birdcolony. Its marked hiking-trails around this half island.
If you like to go for a longer trip we will reccomend to use a car to come around.

You can for example drive to Vardø - 45 minutes away - and there you can see the amazing witchcraft memorial 'Steilneset' . Its a memorial of the 92 witches that was burned in Vardø in the 1600´s. Here you also find some interesting street-art and of course the bird-island 'Hornøya' where you can see a lots of arctic birds and huge amount of them.
