Marianne's Cabin

THE CABIN  
We have a cabin, approx 1 hour twenty minutes drive south from Tromsø.
We can supply transport from airport to cabin and return for 1500 Norwegian Krona .
The cabin has solar power in summer months  only .
It has a wood burning sauna and hot tub and candle or L E D lights.
It's Perfect for viewing the Aurora which can be seen most night's when skies are clear and there is some solar activity.
The area is a heaven for summer or winter activities, Fresh and salt water fishing ,Wildlife and landscape photography ,hiking ,ski , snow shoeing and boarding or just chilling out around the cabin and area.
At the moment the cabin is not suitable for children under 10 years old due to some ongoing construction , Sorry.
The cabin is not suited for the faint hearted and there is a certain level of fitness to walk through the birch forrest to reach the cabin.
There is a 100 meter gradual walk through the birch woods from roadside to cabin which is not suitable for a suitcases.
There is a sledge at entrance to birch woods which you can use.
A rucksack is highly recommended for going up and down to the cabin area.
We do have 2 or 3 rucksacks that you may use , if needed they are kept on the cabin porch.

At the cabin there will be warm all in one snow suits , boots, hats , gloves , snow shoes , skis , ski shoes , snow board and boots , sledge , crampons , please state your size of shoes when booking .

While in doors there are plenty of ways to amuse your self , telescope , binoculars,  acoustic guitars, harmonica  , tambourine  , board games , playing cards , numerous books, dab radio , and plenty of books for you to read if needed , or just chill around wood burning stove arm in arm telling stories .

 
The scenery around this area is fantastic , with trails all around the natural birch wood forests that surrounds you. 
And if driving theres no end to the magnificent fjords that make up Tromsø region.
The light in this area is unique and its a photographers dream summer and winter.
We are directly under the Auroral Oval and if there is some solar activity the Aurora can be seen almost every night that the skies are clear.
If you are lucky there is an abundance of wild life to be seen including Humpback and killer whales , dolphins , seals , otters,  moose , reindeer , golden and white tailed sea eagles , and millions of wild migratory birds that return each year , too many to mention. 
We have bird feeders around the cabin which attract some very rare birds on there migration journeys.
The Cabin area has a living room with wood burning stove where all the water is heated continually.
It has two kitchen area's, one in side , one out side, summer and winter.
There is mobile phone charging all year round and a reception can be found in various areas of the properties.
All cooking is with bottled gas, same again, in side ,and out side. summer and winter.
The main bed room has a double bed and cupboard space for clothing.
The smaller bed room has two bunk beds and small storage area's.
All areas heat up easily once the wood burning stove is going.
You can use as much wood as you like.
The sauna area has a double bed settle where you can sleep if you wish and adequate cupboards for clothing etc.
The sauna and hot tub are both powered with a wood burning oven.
Hot tub will be closed during the winter as water supply freezes from November until mid April.
All drinking water will be kept inside the main cabin so it does not freeze.
There is plenty of area's to relax and just watch time go bye.
Instructions for every thing is available at the cabin.
Once the owner shows you around they will leave and you will be on your own until your departure date.
Please follow all the rules and regulations and have a safe and wonderful time at my cabin.
The cabin was built in the sixties and we have kept it that way , and we try to create that feeling of surviving in a wilderness area ,which is not far wrong ,even although everything needed for your stay is at the cabin.
There is no electricity in the cabins in winter.
Solar power in summer months only.
It would spoil the beauty of the wilderness and that feeling of being out in the middle of no where.
There is solar mobile phone charging and a reception on most mobile networks.
We are aurora hunters, guides and photographers and when the northern lights are dancing over your heads at the cabin, i guarantee you will be awe struck.
The cabin area is still very dark with minimum light pollution as we call it , and is growing like a cancer and very soon there will be no dark areas to view the night skies .
And in summer we have 24 hour day light and that is an experience on its own.
We have parking on road side directly below the cabin.
There is a slight walk up to the cabin around a 100 yards or more .
It entails a steep gradual walk up a hillside through the birch tree's which could be covered in snow in the winter months.
A good level of fitness is required for this rural winter wonderland.
Temperatures can fall to -20 in this area and all outside water supply will be frozen all winter.
Hence we use the wood stove to thaw out any frozen water in the winter months.
If you do not have a car and would like us to pick you up and return to the airport please state this when booking.
There is a fee for this service.
There is a daily bus service from Tromsø but entails at least 3 bus changes to get there ,please state if you would be using this ,and we will run you through the procedure.
The cabin is self sufficient and all groceries should be brought from Tromsø.
There is a super market about 10 kilometres away and out of walking distance
The whole idea of the cabin is its remote location that the cabin is in, and thats what makes this cabin location so unique. and an unforgettable  Experience.
Hope to see you soon.
Marianne.
