Greetings and a warm welcome to Jøkelfjord!
Nestled in this tranquil haven, Jøkelfjord, a remote gem perched far above the Arctic Circle, is home to just 50 residents scattered along the fjord's pristine shores.
Many wonder, can one truly lead a normal life here?
Behind Isbreen The Glacier, you will find Tonny and Mira Mathiassen, a loving couple with two wonderful children. Tonny, a native of Jøkelfjord, and Mira, whom he met while both were living in Tromsø, share a deep-rooted love for this place.
"Whenever we had the chance, we would escape to Jøkelfjord, seeking solace in its breathtaking natural beauty and a respite from the hustle and bustle of city life."
Tonny's entrepreneurial spirit has always been his guiding light, and he possesses an uncanny ability to spot opportunities wherever he goes. He recognized the immense potential hidden within the enchanting landscapes of Jøkelfjord.
On the other hand, Mira thrives on connecting with people and saw the seeds of an exciting future in this endeavor. So, without hesitation, they made the decision to return to Jøkelfjord.
They acquired a piece of land, constructed a cozy home, started a family, and secured local jobs, all while nurturing their grand vision for the future.
When they returned, Jøkelfjord had only two children, but today, there are enough to fill a small bus, making it a wonderful place for children to grow and thrive.
Finally, in 2020, Tonny and Mira realized their long-cherished dream, even navigating through the challenges of a pandemic. They not only survived but thrived, and along the way, they were fortunate enough to welcome head chef, Gerald, into their close-knit team.
"From all of us here, we extend a heartfelt invitation to experience our world."
From Jøkelfjord with love,
