About Owner

This is the house where my grandparents and kids lived, after they bought the farm in the early 1930`s.

Later my father took over , and from 1991 I took over this small farm.

This has been my home more or less my whole life, and I am pleased with that..:-)

In 2010 I was lucky and met my wife Ingrid, and we are now living happily here...

Best regards Joar

Owner purchased this house in 1991

Quiet and authentic stay in a beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

Authentic, quiet house at a beautiful spot in a little village on the Sognefjord. The house is well equipped (dishwasher, oven, tv, dvd player etc). Some of it is a bit dated, but there is everything you need and the furniture and wallpapers from different time periods are also charming. You are staying on the farm of Joar and Ingrid who are very friendly and willing to help when you need anything.

The area is quite remote, so you really need to bring your walking boots and trekking-poles to explore the mountains around the village. There's a gorgeous waterfall and some stunning viewpoints over the fjord and the village. Daytrips outside the village include Bergen (2,5 hrs by car), the lovely town of Vik with its beautiful Stave church (1,5 hrs by ferry), the Glaciers of Fjaerdal (30 mins by ferry and then another 2 hrs by car). But hiking in the mountains really is the main attraction here.

Good value for money.

Nice place and house

  • 5 of 5

The place was deep in a fyjord, surrounded by hills and sea. It was very quite and beautiful. There were several hiking courses which I learned from the owner. Though we had two small kids, we could easily select several hiking courses so that all of us enjoyed. Lakes hidden in the mountains are must-see-places. They are beautiful and quiet and almost mysterious. We visited Vik one day by ferry, which was a good tour of fyjord. The weather was mostly fine but it became quite cold in the morning. We enjoyed using a fire place in the house in the occasion. The stay was very relaxing.

Old house in a farm, in quiet village near the Sognefjord. You can use it as a base for travelling by the fjords, or simply rest in calm surroundings.

Lots of possibilities to hike in the beautiful nature- there are many paths in the forests and mountains in the area.

If you like fishing or to take a refreshing bath, you can do so in the fjord just a couple of hundred metres away from the house.
