The area under 'The Lyngen Alps' (Lyngsalpene) are popular both for winter and summer vacations. In the darker months in mid winter you can view the 'Northern Lights' (Aurora Borealis). When the dark wither is turning more over to longer days the skiers appears in the spectacular mountains surrounding the house.
There is a restaurant/bar that have a seasonal opening hours. There is a local grocery store in 10min away.
In winter the local Husky Farm can give you a ride into the mountains behind a sled or you can go horseback riding.
'Northern Light Dog Adventure' is my neighbour where you can book you dogsled tour with Thomas.
In the summer you need to try the good fishing opportunities in the area. Fishing in lakes, rivers, creeks and the fjord is very popular. Go pick your own mussels on low tide.
There is an ancient "Sami Church" that is situated under a big rock formed as a church.
Between the house and the city center there are 3 bus connections per day.
The local host will help to bring you to the grocery store for little fee.

Other Things to Note
If you stay in a summer weekend you may rent a larger boat with skipper for taking the bigger fish in the fjord. The last few years have the number of halibut increased greatly. So watch out for halibut of 100 kg and above.
