Description

In case you need some nature - we can give you some experiences in the arctic zone in North-Norway. Ekkerøy Holidayhouse is sertified as an ecotourism-business and its a perfect place of residence for bird-watching and hiking.

Ekkerøy Holidayhouse rents out renovated Sea apartments and are excellent night stops as they are close to the arctic sea, the well-known bird mountain and bird-life in general in the area.

Ekkerøy is a beauty spot in northern Norway (Europe) and is situated in Varanger in eastern Finnmark. The peninsula Ekkerøy has a perfect location to the unique bird-life in Varanger. In addition to Pasvik, Ekkerøy has the richest diversity of birds in Norway as a whole.

The accommodation Ekkerøy Holidayhouse offers is based on do-it-yourself housekeeping with a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, sitting-room, bedrooms and you will find a birch logs sauna. From our Sea apartments there is a beautiful view to the Varanger fjord. Birds can even be seen from the windows whether it is stellers eider, sparrow- and snipe birds, redshank, oyster catcher, ruffs, red-breasted snipes, lapwing or sanderling.

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.
