Houses with timber from Russia
Ekkeroy was one of the very few villages in the County of Finnmark,
which was not burnt down during the Second World War. The country
houses in the village are mainly built at the beginning of the
20th century (from 1900 and onwards) and several houses are considered
to be worthy of protection.
Before the Russian Revolution an extensive trade took place with Russians. The Russians sailed with their vessels and bartered their timber and flour for fish from the Norwegians. Some of the houses in Ekkeroy have Russian timber inside its walls and you may also see details on the houses, which is influenced from Russian architectural tradition.
Living amidst the village When staying in a country house or a cabin in Ekkeroy you will have an excellent starting point to explore the nature, the village, the local museum, the old German defence positions from the Second World War, the great bird rock or various birds on the beaches.
In the summer time the restaurant Havhesten is open and you may enjoy a good meal made from local food resources and also beer, wine and liquor.
