Amazing place, Lofoten is better than Cape Town,
excellent holiday lodge
This lodge is very well placed in a beautiful location. 4 of us stayed here for 2 weeks over the summer solstice and used it as a base for sightseeing and hiking. A car is probably essential. There are excellent hikes available on the island including Himmelstind and lower mountains including Nonestind above Unstad, all easily accessible by car. The owner was very helpful and communicated efficiently and rapidly. The lodge is well equipped and was clean and comfortable. In particular the upstairs room and the kitchen/seating area and outside space are very good. The bathroom/toilet and additional sleeping is downstairs and work somewhat less well as there is less space and storage. We had some minor problems (eg with a broken blind and a loose cable on the sound system) but Helge was very easy to contact and sorted these out rapidly. It was difficult to sleep in mid summer because it isn't possible to cover all of the windows with blinds etc, but we expected this to be difficult and the whole point of going to Arctic Norway in the summer is to enjoy the light so this isn't a criticism (I recommend taking eye shades).
Thank you so much. Pleasure is on our side.
Hope to have you back in winter.
Thanks for improvement suggestions. I am working on a solution for the first floor.

Super Haus auch für Regentage
Das Haus hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Es ist modern eingerichtet, hat alles was man braucht und eine schöne Lage mit Blick auf den Fjord und die Berge.
Wir hatten während unseres Aufenthaltes sehr oft schlechtes Wetter und konnten nicht viel unternehmen. In dem gemütlichen Haus konnten wir es aber gut aushalten.
Von Vorteil ist auch die zentrale Lage, wenn man die Lofoten kennen lernen will.
Alle Orte sind vom Haus aus schnell zu erreichen.
Wir können dieses Haus nur empfehlen.
Dear Ingeborg and Rolf:
Thank you so much. I am really happy that you had a good time.
I was checking Lofoten weather many times during your stay and I saw you had a rain storm in Lofoten at your stay.
It feels very intense to be in this house when the storm/orkan is passing.
Welcome back Ingeborg and Rolf.
Kindly Helge Cato
Tolle Lodge in traumhafter Umgebung
Unsere Erfahrungen während unseres zweiwöchigen Aufenthalts waren sehr gut! Das Haus bietet sehr angenehmen Wohnkomfort mit einigen ausgefallenen Ideen. Mit dem Kontakt zum Vermieter waren wir sowohl vor der Reise, als auch während unseres Aufenthalts wirklich sehr zufrieden. Helge gibt sich sehr viel Mühe um seinen Gästen einen tollen Urlaub zu ermöglichen. Dazu zählen neben Anreisetipps auch Vorschläge für Wanderungen und mögliche Besichtigungspunkte in der Umgebung. Die zentrale Lage des Hauses auf Lofoten ist ideal für Ausflüge in der nahen Umgebung (Unstad, Eggum und Utakleiv sind leicht zu erreichen), aber auch Ausflüge nach Reine (1,5h südlich) oder zur Kaiserroute (1,5h nördlich) sind ohne größeren Aufwand möglich. Wegen der teils großen Distanzen ist ein Auto sehr zu empfehlen. Auch dabei hilft Helge gerne mit persönlichen Kontakten zu Mietwagenfirmen weiter. Ich würde nicht zweifeln und dieses Haus definitiv weiterempfehlen.
Wanderbegeisterte können sich über www.ut.no über zahlreiche Routen informieren, die weit über die typischen Touren zum Reinebringen oder Matmora hinausgehen (obwohl diese natürlich ebenfalls toll sind).
Dear German friend:
Than you very much fo your visit and all the good comments about improving the concept of Lofoten Fjord Lodge
I transfer your feedback from German to english here:
"Our experience during our two week stay were very good! The house provides very pleasant comfort with some unusual ideas. With the Contact of the Owner, we were really pleased both before the trip and during our stay. Helge allowed a great holiday. Besides Arrival Tips include suggestions for hikes and possible sightseeing points in the surroundings. The central location of the house on Lofoten is ideal for excursions in the surrounding area (Unstad, Eggum and Utakleiv are within easy reach), but also trips to Reine (1.5h south) or the Emperor Route (1.5 hours north) are no larger effort. Because of the sometimes long distances a car is highly recommended. Here, too, Helge happy to help with personal contacts to car rental companies. I would not doubt and recommend this house definitely. Hiking enthusiasts can check www.ut.no numerous routes through the typical tours to Reinebringen or Matmora go far (although these of course are great also). "
fabulous house with your own fjord!
This property was absolutely fabulous, and I would recommend it to anyone. And even though we never met our host, he was extremely helpful and communicative both before and during our stay. The house is impeccably cared for and the view from all rooms is gorgeous. In the morning, you can watch a huge flock of sheep cross the mountain from your window. Be sure to do some hiking right from the house before heading off to other destinations. The area is really beautiful. We spent a week here and could have stayed longer. We were lucky enough to be there for the midnight sun, so we could enjoy the views every night until we couldn't keep our eyes open. I can't recommend this place enough!
Dear American Guests:
Thank you so much for your kind comments.
I am particulary happy for sharing the use of my summer Lodge with someone, and that they enjoy it as much as I do myself :)
Want you come back as soon as you can....
