Deep in the heart of Balsfjord you find Vollan Gjestestue, a family business that opened its doors 4. July 1948. The building was build by the Germans under World War II, and was bought by Gudrun “Guri” Lydersen in 1946. This was a remarkable job done by a widow with five children. Today the 3rd generation Lydersen runs the place in the same vein as his ancestors.
We have 32 cozy hotel rooms with the «At home feeling» and 8 studio apartments. All our rooms are equipped with shower/WC, cable TV, wireless internet and other necessary facilities. Our rooms are brand new, with a modern, but traditional look. We offer twin rooms, double rooms, single rooms and family rooms, as well as a 2-story suite.
Just outside our doors are great hiking and fishing possibilities. “Nordkjoselva” is located 20 meters from our main building. The great Lyngen Alps are located 60 minutes from our hotel.
Our Café serves old-fashioned home-made dishes with its background in local traditions. It is kept in the same spirit as it was when it first opened in 1948, and we still serve traditional meatballs with the same recipe as in 1948. Our trademark is “A taste of Balsfjord” where we together with local farmers create dishes based on ingredients from our local farms.
