About us

In 2016 we decided to establish Varangertunet Guest house which is situated right by the beautiful Jakobselvdalen, not far from Vadsø in Finnmark. We, who are the passionated owners of the place, are called Siren and Jan-Eilif. Varangertunet is surrounded with rivers, forests and the Varanger National Park as our closest neighbors.

Varangertunet is surrounded with rivers, forests and the Varanger National Park as our closest neighbors. During the winter you can go skiing with a scenery that looks like something from a fairytale. In the autumn you go hiking along the river or forest and experience nothing but beautiful colors. We will never get enough of the northern light or the midnight sun here in the north.

We have different bonfires around our place where you are guaranteed to find peace and joy – surrounded by sounds of nature and a magical bird life. Every single day, we work hard to create a place where our guests feel welcomed when they arrive and re-energized after they leave.

Salmon fishing is Jan-Eilif’s great hobby and he’d be happy to guide you around and share some good advice. Siren ensures that our guests are met with warmth and kindness. We welcome you to experience Varangertunet.
