I would second everything that Duncan has said in his review. It was a very special experience. Quite apart from seeing the lights, the scenery is spectacular, the food fantastic, and the activities very enjoyable but what really makes the holiday is the way that Nigel and Ingvild go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome and at...

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are all very thankful for your positive feedback as the North Norwegian nature isn`t always so kind. Thanks once again and welcome back.

We had a wonderful holiday, and cannot recommend Andoy Friluftssenter enough. Nigel and Ingvild went out of their way to make us feel welcome and ensure that we had a good time. If you are searching for the Northern Lights, you need to accept that nature will not always play ball and so it is important that you enjoy the...

We stayed here for three nights in February. The place is absolutely amazing! The location is excellent to discover the Versteralen, in the middle of nature and with a stunning view on all sides. We stayed in one of the cabins, which were very spacious and warm. And if you want to see the northern lights, you can see it...

Stayed four nights Feb-17. The place is superb, the host, Nigel, works wonders. I would make special mention of the food, the moose pie will live very, very long in the memory and the fish dishes were sublime. The cabins are comfortable and very well appointed and the location is both stunning and a great centre for access to the...

I came to get my first Northern Lights in the bag but this little gem is so much more. First of all the food is OUTSTANDING. The salmon parcels on our first night were to die for and set us up beautifully for activities like ice fishing and a snowy barbecue lunch. Nigel and his wife are the perfect hosts...

Breaking a 4-hour road journey for dinner in January snow, ice and darkness, warmth and a good dinner here--inc their famous moose pie plus a delicious dessert--were very welcome. No northern lights that night, though.

With an 04:30 ferry departure from Risoyhamn, our best option was to eat at Andoy Friluftssenter, 12km before the port. They don’t have any vegetarian dishes on the menu but they cooked us a very acceptable vegetable risotto, we also had dessert and I tried a Mack porter from the world’s most northerly brewery, a lovely warming brew at 7%...

We stayed here for two nights in a cabin overlooking the water. The cabin was cosy and had everything it needed for us. At night we had dinner in the restaurant, we had the moose pie, it was very good. I can't say anything negative about this place.
