The Northern Lights and Pure Snow...
Explore the North Cape area in Winter!
A winter stay in the North Cape area will be a unique experience!
Light -and weather conditions alters all through the winter with the most special period between Nov. 20 - Jan. 20 when the sun is below the horizon - the Polar Night! But even then the sky alone can show up fantastic colurs and varible cloud conditions. You will have Blue days an Golden evenings...
Many go "hunting" the amazing Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). The possibility of beeing able to see this phenomen is rather good and if you stay at North Cape Cabins it is even better because of no disturbing lights from buildings etc. TWO OF OUR CABINS (ØRN and RORBUA) ARE OPEN DURING WINTER. Please read the note on winter-rental.
NB! TWO NIGHTS ARE MINIMUM FOR WINTER RENTALS
Aurora Borealis often show up very quickly and disappear just as quick. By staying in our cabins you can in a moment get out into the total darkness to see if the Northern Lights have appeared!
Otherwise? If you bring skies you can have both short and long skiing tours in a varied terrain. If you prefer slalom there is a slalom hill approx. 12km from the cabins. In the pure, white snow around the cabins you can have a lot of fun and we have 4 sledges available for our guests. -Or you can just walk along the road in the Polar Night with bright twinkling stars above you!

It is no running water in the cabins wintertime. Because of this we have a note explaining how things work, how to get water etc. This you must read before you decide to book or not. You´ll find the note here. No running water gives a 25% reduction in the rent.
We need extra time to prepare for wintertime rentals, therefore bookings have to be made minimum 2 days before arrival.
Shorter time might be possible. Get in touch if you need short notice booking.
Do you think it will be difficult to stay without running water in the cabin? Here you can read one of the greetings written in a guestbook after a winter stay:
"We spent a lovely time here in your cabin. It was warm, comfortable, clean and the landscape was AWESOME! We concerned a little about no running water, but it turned out to be no problem. We will recommend your place for sure to our friends, so they can enjoy as much as we did! Thank you for everything!"

More greetings after both summer -and winter stays you´ll find in the Guestbook
