My adult daughter and I stayed here for 4nights in January. Well what a magical place. The staff were so lovely, the owners were warm and friendly and the staff they employ are all so lovely and helpful, they all love the huskies and their job which is a real treat to witness. We had a sauna and Jacuzzi in the open air with the setting sun, and then sat around the open fire (wonderful). A brilliant sleigh ride up to the base camp and a lovely reindeer stew for dinner. Regular daily walk down to the Russian border. And the last evening was the icing on the cake with a husky ride up into the hills, across 3 frozen lakes, simply magical. They huskies were amazing, so full of energy and cannot wait to run. Amazing views across frozen lake from the cottage we stayed in, and up to the hills in Russia. We stayed in the 1 bedroom cottage, which was absolutely perfect for our needs. Nice comfy twin beds, TV, shower and toilet, kitchenette with hob rings and fridge. They even had WiFi, which would come and go, but that was fine. Food was lovely, we had breakfast each day, continental and sometime eggs and bacon. We also had dinner each night, the last evening we had a special 3 course dinner which was smoked whale starter (this was lovely, like salmon but more subtle), reindeer fillet for main (this was amazing) and local berries with ice cream for dessert. We will definitely be back.
We loved every minute. There was nothing we didn't like.
- Sollia's location outside town but close to the action (border, woods, lakes, skies..) - Sollia's equipment (overalls, c. c. skis, luges, gloves, hats, etc..) - Sollia's management - Sollia's huskies - Sollia's food, although not enough variety over four days
- no Northern Lights in four nights.. - some missed opportunity to make us feel at home (family split in two houses far from each other, no welcoming staff upon arrival) - high pricing in Kirkenes hardly justifiable without the aurora bolrealis
Friendly staff, comfy studio cabin, amazing views and scenery, Northern Lights
Dinner (in the main house, not the restaurant) was simple and filling but it was a bit expensive. There's no nearby shopping so if you want to prepare food, get supplies in Kirkenes.
Great view of country side. Husky kennels and able to have tour. Staff very helpful Very clean. Walking distance from Russian border
13kms from Kirkenes and Taxi expensive. Only one bus to building but we couldn't find it.asked a number of people.
Very very little, but the breakfast was reasonable and the guy serving it was at least helpful (the only one who had been). There is a kitchen area where you can cook something if you wish.
This hostel looks nothing at all like the picture given, which we were told was a picture of the restaurant. That must have been a long time ago and it wasn't immediately near the hostel. We were sent to a room which hadn't been made up. They didn't seem to know this. The hot water is rationed for each room which means watch out if you are having a shower. It might just run out in middle of this. We were just left to get on with it with no follow up or help.
Very nice and helpful staff Beautiful scenic location
inconvenient to get into town and very expensive. expensive by cab from airport Breakfast not included and expensive, but full kitchen access available
The relative isolation and closeness to nature; gathering blueberries from the woods above the hotel; wonderful food cooked by the host Einvind in the beautiful lake shore restaurant (eg reindeer stew; Artic char) with views of the Russian border post; learning about the husky dogs, and about the history of the main house, one of the very few buildings left standing after WW2; staff helpfulness and hospitality; comfortable apartment.
Nothing really! The weather during our stay in August could have been better (wet, grey) but obviously good weather can't be guaranteed anywhere! I was surprised the sauna and hot tub cost extra, it would have been nice if these were included. A toaster in the apartment would have been appreciated. But these are small points.
We were lucky to have the entire cabin 11 (10 rooms, if not more) empty, only for us, which increase significantly our comfort, by allowing us to have the common living room just for us; otherwise, room was for dwarfs, but warm and clean, good wi-fi the Hungarian guy who accomodate us was extremely kind, helpful and supportive
TV in the room was as unexistent (only one Norwegian channel), the location is quite far, far away from any populated area (if you are excluding, of course, Norwegian-Russian customs border) and the price(breakfast excluded) was not friendly at all...
Nice wooden cottages. Near the border with Russia and about 10 km from Kirkenes. Nice breakfast.
reception empty, dont answer phone or sms
Excellent restaurant Multiple services and activities
The location is a bit awkward, just outside Russian border, that's the only thing we could think about :)
location, new buildings, good brekfast
poor wi-fi, small TV set
Ann was an excellent hostess, handling nearly all aspects of my stay. She was very friendly, conscientious, and hard-working. The setting was very beautiful, and it was a nice place to relax.
The internet was in and out, and some of the other guests were not good about keeping the shared kitchen facilities clean. The restaurant was rumored to be good, but it was extremely expensive, without any modestly-priced options. I ended up going to Kirkenes to find a meal under 300kr.
Nice room. Excellent kitchen/common area. Country location 1 kilometer from Russian border. One of the best showers ever.
Location near Russian border, Midnight sun, visit to on site Husky Training Facility, friendly staff, good Sunday night buffet at restaurant. Would stay again.
Cabins very basic, more camping style than a hotel but adequate, wifi slow.
Liked the free-standing cabin with a good sized sitting room and liked the closeness of the lake and the hiking trails. Staff were friendly but not very flexible. If returning, I would stay here again but take my French Press and plan on a season when I could take advantage of the huskies and the lack of light pollution to see the Northern Lights.
Sadly, we were there on Monday so did not get to enjoy the restaurant. Also, the bedrooms were very small, and the kitchen had no coffee maker, not even a French press. Yet coffee in the lodge was not available until 8 am. Surprised that there were no black out curtains, but did enjoy the midnight sun even though impeded sleep. Seemed a bit pricey for the level of rusticity. Also, even wanted to charge us just to look at the huskies they own.
Good value, very clean, great staff. Restaurant can serve a real treat!
The internet was dropping and often for many hours.
The staff were wonderful, the location is unique and the restaurant excellent.
Nothing really but understand the cabins are quite basic compared to the high quality restaurant
Location is marvellous
Staff attitudes. As a paying customer I expect good service without the feeling that I am somehow causing them trouble.
Superb, the owners and staff could not be more helpful even had a tour round the husky farm next door..
nothing to dislike
Staff was very friendly
The location - a short walk from the Russian border, a beautiful view of the lake and access to walks up the hill to a terrific viewpoint. Friendly and efficient staff.
Only i OK but very expensive restaurant in the vicinity. Didn't know before arriving that there were cooking facilities in our cabin.
We visited Sollia Gjestegaard early April. We had a very pleasant stay! I liked it being there in April, for me it was a perfect combination of a comfortable cool temperature, snow and blue sunny skies. So there was snow and the lakes were still frozen, then of course we made the dogsledge tour, with 8 lovely enthusiastic dogs. It was a very unique experience in a postcard pretty scenery. The owner/cook made us a Salmon Pasta dinner, which was delicious! The site is a bit away from the centre of Kirkenes, but check out their website or call them for the pick-up possibilities, it’s worth it travelling some (about 15) extra kilometers for a Norwegian style holiday experience.
Wonderful stay at Sollia!!! Einvind and Jurunn are truly wonderful hosts and it was a very memorable experience to stay at their cabins. Better than a city hotel. So close to the beautiful nature, and we were able to catch Northern Lights in the woods behind the cabin. Very unique experience compared to regular city chase. They also have dog sledding at night! Einvind is a fantastic cook too and filled us well with delicious meals like creamy pasta and melt in your mouth salmon. Overall, definitely strong recommedation to stay. We want to go back in summer and experience it differently along with the beautiful lake side restaurant.
Wifi is surprisingly good for being so far out but do note it's not strong enough for streaming. As city folks, we learnt to enjoy the peace and quiet and read as opposed to be connected all the time! And sleep early! The sunrises are beautiful!
Very happy with our stay at Sollia Guesthouse. There were facilities we hadn't realised it had, such as a kitchen with washing machine and dryer, a sauna, and various trips such as dog sledding and chasing the northern lights. Our meal in the restaurant was delicious and the staff were really helpful. It is only15 minutes by car from the airport. Would love to return one day.
There was nothing we didn't like.
