Food traditions since 1948


a Cozy hotel and a traditional cafe with home-cooked local food.

We are celebrating a proud 75 years with home cooked traditional food on the menu.

From the start the cafe has been widely known for being able to offer guests home-cooked food, based on local ingredients. Even today, we maintain our traditions and identity that Guri started with via food, interior design and slightly informal, loose service.

We offer everything from typical traditional Northern Norwegian food, based on both Norwegian, Kven and Sami traditions. In addition to more “modern” dishes, with a continued focus on local ingredients.

We make the majority of our food ourselves and source as much of our raw materials as possible from local suppliers in the region. Among other things, we get lamb meat from Hamnvåg Lam in Malangen, feta cheese from Bomstad Gård in Nordkjosbotn, and almond potatoes and dried cod from Kåre Frydenlund in Storfjord.

The cafe opened its doors for the first time on 4 July 1948, after Gudrun “Guri” Lydersen had taken over the property. Today, Vollan Gjestestue is run by the 3rd generation Lydersen in the same cozy style and in the spirit of “Guri”.

Since we make “homemade” home cooking, we adapt the menu according to the season. You will therefore be able to find something new and exciting on our menu at regular intervals. Visit our cafe for real “home-made” food the next time you want something extra good.

In addition to being a traditional guesthouse, we can also offer cozy accommodation with good facilities.
