About Merethe Vik (or Mads Rio)

We, Merethe and Mads lives at Voss,about 120 km from our holiday house. Voss is known as a vinter sport city with nice down hill skiing, . But in summer we have a big event; Ekstremsportveko (the week of extremsport) Mads loves to kayak, and in Voss he have courses in river kayaking (for beginners).

At our vacation house we have kayaks for rent, to use in the fjord around our summer vacation house.

We both love kayaking.

Merethe Vik (or Mads Rio) purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Merethe Vik (or Mads Rio) chose Hordaland

In 1990 Mads got the house from his parents. We have done a lot of improvans of the house. Originally this is a house from 1912, and was a place for working: knitting and fixing fishing nets. In 1970 the house was devided into two separate apartments. We have tryed to maintain some of the old details in the building consrtuction.

Mads has great memories from all his summer vacations at this place, with his parents and sister. Mads mum is from this area, so we have family here too.

What makes this apartment unique

What we love the best of this house?

It must be the stunning sunset late at night. The barberquing areas...We also love to sit and look at the fjord from the living room. And of coures that you can be all alone at this place.

Fabulous family hangout

  • 5 of 5
We lived the location and how well stocked the apartments were. It would have been a bit awkward to share the common areas with another group but we had both apartments so this wasn't a problem for us. The quay area was our favorite. The massive refrigerator in the larger unit was excellent too. It was a bit difficult to find the property and would have been extremely difficult without a Norwegian cell. Overall a real highlight of the trip for all 10 of us - ranging in age from 8-50!

The house lies detached in the countryside in peaceful surroundings. It is in a fjord north of Bergen. The nearest house is 300 meters away, on the other side of the bay. You have a local supermarket 500 meters away and some bigger shopping centres 12 minutes by car at Knarvik. This is a popular area for sailing and you will see a lot of boats trafficking at the fjord. There are a lot of small bays nearby where it is nice to have a swim or to dive. The owners sometimes arrange guided kayak trips in the area. You can participate on these tours, and learn kayaking in safe conditions or just enjoy the sight!

Other Activities: canoeing, kayaking, riding lessons, hiking

Golf: In addition, one of Europe’s best golf courses is only 30 minutes away by car. At Fløksand is Meland Golf Course, considered one of the best 18-hole golf courses in Europe, presenting unique challenges in a varied landscape. The golf course has a pro shop and the cafeteria.
