Staying in a turf house for guests can be a truly unforgettable experience. The thick walls and earthy materials provide a sense of warmth and security, while the natural surroundings offer a peaceful and serene environment. If you have the opportunity to stay in a turf house during your travels, it is definitely worth considering. If you are more than 4 guests (adults) we can offer an external turf house with two single beds. The big Finnish sauna contains a changing room, shower, and toilet an is very convenient if you need a comfortable and relaxing sauna experience. The river is only 50 meters away and allows you to easily access the water and enjoy a refreshing swim or dip after a relaxing sauna session. The wood fire pizza oven is a great addition. It's a fun and unique way to prepare meals and you will have the opportunity to cook and enjoy pizza outdoors during summer.
We have lived in Kokelv since 2010. We have three dogs and love mountain tours, cross country skiing or sit at the outdoor fireplace enjoying life. Just across the river which divides the village, we have another property for rent. This cabin is built in 2017 and have a more modern look that our "hobbit" houses on the east side of the river.
Kokelv is known for its scenic beauty and outdoor recreational opportunities. The village is surrounded by mountains and forests, and the nearby fjord provides opportunities for fishing and boating. There are also several hiking trails in the area that offer stunning views of the surrounding landscape. The Sami people have traditionally inhabited this region, and their culture and way of life still play an important role in the community today. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in Sami culture and traditions among both locals and visitors. The tourist road to Havøysund starts in Kokelv. The road is called the Havøysund National Tourist Route, and it is a scenic route that winds its way along the coast of the Arctic Ocean. The road is approximately 66 kilometers long, and it takes you through some of the most beautiful and rugged landscapes of northern Norway. Either you visit Hammerfest, Alta, Lakselv, Honningsvåg (North Cape) or drive along the National Tourist route towards Havøysund with its unique landscape, Kokelv will be the perfect starting point.
