About us

Let's together explore our little corner of the world, during all the seasonal variety of our region in northern Norway

In the wintertime you’ll be dazzled by the polar night’s beauty; low temperatures and a silent atmosphere under sparkling stars and the dancing northern lights.  In our area of the northern hemisphere, you might also experience the total opposite winter element, windy snowstorm.

As winter fades and the midnightsun reappears, the temperatures grow steadily warmer. The snow melts away and uncovers the landscape, revealing completely new scenery compared to the wintertime.

From spring to summer we proudly present to you the land where the sun never sets. A region of lush, green forest, and fields of blooming flowers. Rushing rivers, nesting birds and other creatures become more active and are really worth the trip to explore!

Let us introduce you to the wonders of our region and make sure you’ll have a quality experience to remember. It’ll be an honor to bring you on an adventure around our home; either at sea, along the roads, or out in the ground field.
