We spent two nights at this magical location at the end of a four week holiday. All of the staff were wonderful, as were the dogs, each with its own personality. The dog-sledding was one of te best experiences we've ever had, and the wild enthusiasm of the dogs to go running is incredible. Beautiful and quiet location. Accommodation clean,...

Spent two nights here before heading south to Finland, and it was one of the loveliest places on our trip. The house is clean and bright, with nice decorations and a family atmosphere. Julie and Elley made us very welcome, and couldn't have been any more helpful. It was a treat to eat dinner in the longhouse on our first...

We got a lovely room for two for only 400 kr. There was a fridge, a microwave oven with an electric cooker and a kettle. We had seen birds and awesome squirrels, trees and a scenic lake. And there were a lot of dogs, they were barking - but it didn't disturb us. May be we were too tired.

If you need to get far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life BIRK is a good option. The food is great, the rooms are comfortable, and the staff is helpful and friendly. BIRK is situated in the remote Pasvik valley, right on the banks of the Pasvik river. Ask for one of the rooms overlooking the river...

My wife and I stayed six nights in the guesthouse, our room was an ensuite double with views of the Pasvik river whilst in bed 😀. Free tea and coffee for guests, excellent food including Elk steak and King Crab legs. If you fancy an adventure and something different (not bucket and spade) this is for you. We had a...

Traditional norwegian house on edge of forest offering fabulous views, wildlife and dog sled tours. Some rooms ensuite and local food offered. Staff very friendly and helpful. We rented a car for stay but they do offer a collection service from Kirkenes if required.

The staff were welcoming and accommodating, and while the location is out in the wilderness, it was perfect for some hands on dog sledging and seeing the elusive northern lights. Our guide Max was personable and charming, and manager and chef Thomas was accommodating to our needs and made excellent meals with local produce. Great for couples and families and...
