The house was more like a little hotel under construction than the typical home I expected. There were many other people that had rented other spaces of the house and a group of volunteers working on it. Despite the room was confortable and the kitchen has a nice wiew to the harbour, the room's door cannot be closed with key, so you are forced to trust many other people in addition to the owners, that were not at home those days. Though they are close, neither the description or the pictures match exactly the room, the kitchen or the bath we used, but probably others in this big house. As there is no ring in the house's door and the house has 3 floors, nobody heard us when we arrived and knocked the door. We were afraid of coming into a house that is not your own, so we waited without knowing what to do until other couple, that had rented another room, went out of the house and we could talk to them and find the people in charge. Despite of all this, Henningsvaer is a nice town and the overall experience was not bad.
We stayed for one week in Lena's house in Avan, near Lulea. We didn't meet Lena in person, but her daughter showed us around the house and told us everything important on the house and surrounding which has been kind and helpful. This far outweighted the misunderstanding on our arrival time (unfortunately, we had to wait for 30 minutes in the rain until Lena's daughter met us). She provided also contact data of herself in case of emergency.
The kitchen is well equipped, especially the dish washer was appreciated. The house is spacious with vintage furniture. It has an arty touch, but some fresh paint here and there wouldn't hurt.
Avan is a cute village. We enjoyed the summer café right opposite our house where we met very friendly locals. Without having a car, we could still reach the main sights via bus / ferry. It is a great place to relax and decelerate.
We really enjoyed staying with Lena and Patrik. Henningsvaer is a great place to base yourself for exploring the Loften Islands and we felt very much at ease and welcome during our stay. If you're looking for somewhere to stay, be it for a few days or far longer I'd have no hesitation in recommending them.
Wir hatten einen angenehmen Aufenthalt in Henningsvaer. Lena gab uns Tipps für Wanderungen und Aktivitäten auf den Lofoten und war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Zimmer war relativ gross und sauber und das Bett war sehr bequem. Henningsvaer ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt, um die Lofoten zu erkunden.
The van was awesome and had everything we needed from water to pots and pans, utensils, blankets, a map, grill,spices, coffee and tea. Prefect combination of transportation and lodging all in one. Lena was great to work with and was very responsive to any questions.
merci tout d'abord à Léna pour sa gentillesse, nous avons bénéficié d 'un van bien équipé, de taille raisonnable pour les routes du lofoten. une formule très intéressante qui vous laissera totalement libre dans votre périple, le meilleur moyen de ne rien rater des paysages extraordinaires.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, sind freundlich empfangen worden und hatten keinerlei Probleme mit unseren Gastgebern. Die Zimmer waren sauber und gepflegt und die Hunde Igor und Iris haben uns auch gut aufgenommen. Alles in allem ein schöner Aufenthalt!
We had an amazing time exploring lofoten in the VW camper. The hosts were friendly, picked us up from the airport and showed us everything we needed to know for the van. The camper had everything we needed for cooking and sleeping and the bed was surprisingly comfortable! We had an amazing trip - Lofoten is beautiful and the VW helped us get the most out of our time
The place was amazing and Lena and Patrik were amazing as well! Loved everything about it! Will gladly stay again
Lena and Patrik are the perfect hosts. They were so lovely and helpful people. The apartment is beautiful and you will find everything that you need. I can highly recomend to stay there and we will definitely come back in summer:)
