We offer a nicely furnished vacation house (85 m²) at Hornindalsvatnet lake, Europe's deepest lake.

Besides that, there are numerous hiking options both during summer and winter. There are numerous skiing options for the whole family during winter (down- hill and cross - country skiing). The vacation house can be rented any time throughout the year. Extra charge for the use of electricity.

Summer skiing center at Stryn, where you will be able to find good ski- runs also during summer. Good bathing options directly at your front door, but also at ´Refviksanden´, the best beach on the Atlantic Ocean.

Leisure activities during the winter: Fishing in freshwaters, fiords and at the sea. Very good skiing possibilities: down- hill and cross - country skiing in Hornindal, Stryn, Stranda, Bondalseidet (Ørsta) and Nordfjordeid (Harpefossen).

very nice house

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a very nice week in the Stryn / Fjordane area where we (4 persons) stayed at this lovely house.

It is a bit close to the road, but on the the other hand therefore also easy to access, otherwise a great built boathouse with a living area in the loft.

Fantastic view from the house over the lake and mountains and the house is well equipped and very well kept. And the boathouse feeling is very nice. The brothers owning it are also very nice. We can definitely recommend this house.

Thank you for a nice week!

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This Boat House was perfect for our needs. We are a family of four, 2 boys-ages 5 and 8- who just loved exploring all around the boat house and inside it as well. Location is great, close to Stryn and other Fjords worth seeing. The communication with the host was good, really lovely people. Loved using the boat, fishing, cooking on the fire, enjoying the fire and eating by the lake was truly the highlight. Beds were comfortable and the cottage was well equipped and very cozy. Thank you for a great vacation and hope to visit again.

Wunderschönes Ferienhaus, in traumhafter Lage ermöglichte uns einen unvergesslichen Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren ersten Urlaub in Naustloftet verbracht und würden dort jederzeit sehr gerne wieder hin fahren. Ein mit Liebe ausgestattetes Haus was direkt am See liegt und uns einen phantastischen Blick jeden Tag aufs neue bei herrlichen Sonnenschein bescherte. Uns die Abende am Kamin versüßten. Schöne Bootstouren und Sightseeing erlebten. Wenn wir fragen hatten, konnten wir uns jederzeit an die Vermieter wenden. Sie sind sehr freundlich und fühlten uns durch die überaus sehr gute "Betreuung" gleich noch wohler.

Das Kommentar, was ich hier gelesen hatte von jemandem der die Straße am Haus für laut empfunden hatte, können wir nur sagen, dass wir das absolut nicht so empfunden haben.

Wunderschön gelegen, sehr gut ausgestattet

  • 5 of 5

Der Balkon liegt direkt über dem See, ist fast den ganzen Tag sonnenbeschienen und man hört die Wellen plätschern. Viel Grundstück um das Haus herum. Ein Kanu und ein Motorboot (Letzteres gegen Mietpreis) liegen in der Bootshalle bereit und können jederzeit genutzt werden. Durch die vielen Fenster direkt auf dem See fühlt man sich im Ess- und Wohnbereich rein optisch wie auf einem Schiff. Wir haben den einwöchigen Aufenthalt trotz zweier Regentage voll genossen. Ausflüge zu Geiranger, Trollstiegen und zum Jostedal-Nationalpark sind als Tagesausflüge gut machbar und empfehlenswert.

Traumhafte Lage - viel Verkehr

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus und die Anlage haben die 5 Sterne mehr als verdient.

Tolle Lage mit phantastischem Blick, liegt sehr zentral für alle mgl. Ausflüge, super sauber und toll ausgerüstet, wunderschön angelegt.

Sehr netter Vermieter, im ganzen Haus Blumen zur Begrüßung.


Die vielbefahrene Landstraße, die direkt hinter dem Haus verläuft. Tagsüber und vor allem am Wochenende hat man keine Minute ohne Verkehrslärm. Also nichts für Personen, die die absolute Stille in der Natur suchen.

Phantastische Lage

  • 5 of 5

Ein Haus, das alles hält, was in der Beschreibung erwähnt ist. Super gelegen, eine ideale Raumaufteilung, sehr sauber und die Highlights, die Anlegestelle für das Boot wie der Privatstrand. Man wird schon überaus herzlich willkommen mit einem frischen Blumenstrauß und einem Willkommensgruß an der Haustür. Eine sehr "runde Sache" vom ersten bis zum letzten Tag. Der Vermieter ist sehr freundlich, zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit. Die touristischen Höhepunkte sind alle sehr schnell zu erreichen und man erlebt Norwegen "at its best". Wir können Haus, Vermieter und Umgebung uneingeschränkt empfehlen und hoffen in naher Zukunft wieder einmal Naustloftet zu besuchen.
