Recommendations for future guests
“The kitchen is well equiped all you need is to bring you own food. / / On the day of arrival the owner was fantastic in recommending different day tours in different directions and backed it up with maps and directions so we made lunch our main meal with something light in the evening. / / As we were traveling we rented bedding and towels but you can take your own. / / The television is of the older type (RCA connectors) with Norwegen channels (no DVD player) so if you have a laptop to stream to, it is recommend (internet is very good here) we used a IPad.”

About the area

About Stryn


Gamle Strynefjellsvegen road, Stryn Summer Ski Centre, Loen andOlden

Majestic mountains, deep green waters, thundering waterfalls, mighty glaciers between green valleys, and the glittering blue fjord which cuts its way into the spectacular nature of Western Norway. Gamle Strynefjellsvegen is one of Norway's official Scenic Routes, built in 1894, and winding its way over the mountain between Sjåk and Stryn. Experience Norwegian nature at its most beautiful: waterfalls, snow-clad mountain peaks, old mountain farms, mirror-still mountain lakes and stunning viewpoints. Stryn Summer Ski Centre, the best summer ski centre in Northern Europe, on Gamle Strynefjellsvei (County Road no 259). Enjoy summertime snow on prepared cross-country skiing trails, and slopes for downhill skiing, telemark skiing and snowboarding. Cafeteria and ski hire. From 20 May 2017, you can use the gondola of Loen Skylift to get from fjord to mountain in 5 minutes and experience Hoven peak at 1100 metres above sea level, with its Hoven panoramic restaurant. For a spectacular holiday experience, try the Via Ferrata Loen and its suspension bridge, 750 metres above sea level. Climb a mountain and visit the new tourist cabin at the top of Skåla mountain, at an altitude of 1848 metres. Experience Briksdalen and its Kleivafossen waterfall, one of the most photographed sights in Norway, with the Briksdalsbreen and Kjenndalsbreen glaciers. Glacier hikes are possible on some of the glaciers in Nordfjord. Experience Lodalen with Loenvatnet lake, tinted green by the glacier water, surrounded by mighty mountains and Ramnefjellsfossen/Utigardsfossen, one of the most stunning waterfalls you will ever see, and the 11th highest in the world.

Panoramaveien road, Hornindalsvatnet lake and a Viking ship

The Panoramaveien road winds 38 kilometres along the northern side of the Nordfjord, through the idyllic, tiny villages of Blakset, Fjelli, Randabygda/Hopland, Hennebygda and Lote. Tvinefossen, a beautiful and fascinating waterfall, which you can walk behind to admire the spectacular Nordfjord through the curtain of water. Hornindalsvatnet is the deepest lake in Europe, at 514 metres deep, 23 kilometres long and 3.3 kilometres wide, and contains trout, eel and salmon. At Nordfjordeid, the longest Viking ship in the world was built, the Myklebust ship, a reconstruction of a Viking ship discovered in one of the Viking Age burial mounds at Myklebust. Experience the ship was built between 2017 and 2018. This is a place where you can find the Eidselva salmon river, a golf course and fjord horse centre, home to the most beautiful horses in Norway, the light-haired/dun-coloured fjord horses.

West Cape and Selje Monastery

Ships often have to lie up for several days, waiting for the weather to be good enough for them to cross the waters of Stadthavet. The West Cape plateau, westernmost mainland point in Norway, towers 497 metres above the foaming sea. Stadlandet is a long peninsula, with rolling hills and open, treeless heather moors and grassy fields with grazing sheep. It is in stark contrast to the dramatic cliffs and screes which plunge down into the fjord to the south. The King's daughter Sunniva, who suffered a martyr's death on the island of Selja. The ruins of a church and Benedictine monastery from 1103. In the centre of Selja, you will find a white sandy beach which looks like it belongs much further south. Ervikstranden beach is a wide, gently sloping sandy beach, with an idyllic little churchyard and the beautiful Ervikkirken. Hoddeviksanden in the village of Hoddevik is a lovely beach with constantly shifting dunes, and is a surfing paradise.

Kannesteinen, Kråkenes lighthouse, Hornelen and Grotlesanden

Around 10 kilometres south of Maløy island, past Torskangerpollen to the idyllic little village of Oppedal. Here you will find Kannesteinen, a mushroom-shaped rock which has been eroded over thousands of years by the sea. Kråkenes lighthouse on the northernmost and most exposed location on the island. Standing at a safe distance from the foaming waves on a stormy day, watching the wild ocean is an amazing experience. High, precipitous mountains, blue-white glaciers, narrow fjord arms, lakes teeming with fish, chalk-white sandy beaches, and countless islands to explore. Hornelen, the highest sea cliff in Europe, rises a majestic 860 metres straight up from the sea. The fishing village of Kalvåg is the biggest and best-preserved fishing village in Western Norway, with the beautiful wharfside Vamråkbuene buildings lined up down by the sea. On the island of Bremangerlandet is Grotlesanden, one of the finest swimming beaches in Norway, with a 2 kilometre long beach of fine-grained sand.

SUNNMØRE: Geiranger and the Geiranger Fjord

On UNESCO's list of natural and cultural treasures is the world-famous Geiranger Fjord, which people say is the most beautiful fjord in the world. Heading towards Geiranger down Ørnesvingen, with its 11 hairpin bends, the stunning view almost takes your breath away, and the natural beauty is astounding. The ferry ride from Geiranger to Hellesylt takes around 70 minutes. Marvel at the tiny abandoned mountain farms clinging above the cliffs along the fjord, and admire the stunning waterfalls.

About Norge

Your holiday home in Norway makes holiday dreams come true for nature lovers everywhere!

If you were to fold Norway down the way from its southern tip the North Cape would fall somewhere between Rome and Naples. The most southern, western, northern and eastern points in Norway, despite the long land borders with Sweden, Finland and Russia, all lie on the sea. Better than that even is that the east of Finnmark shares a line of longitude with Istanbul, while the west coast in Bergen shares one with Marseille. If you travel from Norway's south coast to the arctic circle, you have to travel all the way to Kirkenes and then the same distance again. If you'd like to set off along the whole coastline, including fjords and islands, you should plan time and luggage for around 57,000 kilometres of travel.

Norway's exoticism comes from its geographical and topographical profile, from its fascinating nature, which only seems to come in XXL format. The longest and deepest fjord in Europe, Sognefjord, or the largest plateau on the continent, the Hardangervidda. The endless summer days under the midnight sun and the magic of the dancing Northern Lights on the northern winter sky.

The fact that you immediately feel at ease in this completely different "world" is also down to Norwegian society. An environment that is focused on the future but glorifies the past with fervour . Mental gymnastics aren't necessary to understand "Sentrum", "Tradisjon" or "Velkommen". There is already a sense of familiarity when you arrive: If you don't opt for anonymous air travel and instead take one of the ferries through the Kattegat or across the Skagerrak, you will experience an atmostpheric overture: The first signs of land point towards prosperity and civic care: well maintained holiday homes in bright colours; marinas round every corner and in every bay; in the

busy harbour quarters of Oslo, Larvik, Langesund, Kristiansand, Stavanger and Bergen, it's all about the incoming ferries. The signs towards the car exit are as pleasant as the considerate driving. Let the journey to your "hut", the holiday home, begin:

Holiday in Norway

Norwegians love their great nature and freedom beyond all measure. It's no wonder that holidaying in your own holiday home is more than a way of living – it's a way of life. In the most beautiful locations on the banks of the fjords, on the open sea or in the vast mountains, there are several hundred thousand of the most beautiful holiday homes, which the Norwegians, very modestly, call "hytte", a hut. Most are located just a few steps from a hiking trail, a cross-country skiing trail or their own jetty. The main thing is that you are very quickly immersed in nature. The Norwegian magic formula for activities and relaxation in nature is called "friluftsliv", which more or less means life in fresh air. And it is contagious, we promise.

Winter offers up varied and challenging skiing for adults and children, beginners or advanced skiers alike. Even the historical sights and cultural events that have long stood in the shadow of experiences in nature are now attractions for many tourists.

Norway has so much to offer tourists all year round that you may be left wishing you had more time to explore everything.

Holiday in Norway's fjords

Norway is known for its impressive fjords, deep canyons that project up to 200 km inland. The largest fjords in Norway are Hardangerfjord, Sognefjord and Nordfjord. The ice age left its mark here . On the banks of the fjords, impressive mountain chains tower into the heavens. Holiday homes in this location have views that you can only dream of. A holiday in the fjords is certainly an unforgettable experience. Even UNESCO have certified the unique natural beauty of Geirangerfjord and Nærøyfjord. Seeing fjords on holiday in Norway, exploring them, walking along their banks and visiting the tiny places at the end of many fjords is almost imperative when on holiday in Norway.

Norway holiday tips

You could say that Norway is unique from head to toe and full of places that anyone would love to visit at least once. In any travel guide, you can learn all about the absolute highlights, such as Geirangerfjord, Trolltunga, Preikestolen, cities like Bergen and Trondheim, Lofoten and, of course, North Cape. We have a few extra special Norway holiday tips:

• Among Norway's fjords, you can visit Urnes Stave Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, take a mini-cruise on the ferry from Gudvangen to Kaupanger and take in the summit panorama from Moldes' own mountain.
• In South and East Norway, the Maihaugen open-air museum is certainly worth a visit. You don't want to miss the Peer Gynt Festival in Vinstra either if you are interested in culture, and visit the Forest and Hunting Museum in Elversum if you are a fan of nature.
• In Central and Northern Norway, you can take a mine tour in Røros, travel along Coastal Route 17 and take the cable car in Tromsø up the local mountain to take in the panoramic views across the polar region. And you wouldn't want to miss out on going on a Red King Crab safari either, do you?

Fishing in Norway holiday

Our fishing houses are perfect for a fishing holiday in Norway, complete with high-quality equipment, such as a filleting bench, freezer (min. 60 litres) and boat (included or for hire).

Holiday in Norway is varied and can even mean that you get to spend your evening preparing fish that you've caught yourself – the typical Norwegian lifestyle!

Norway holiday with children

Who needs amusement parks, hotel entertainment and water parks when you have a huge adventure playground to explore and discover right on the doorstep of your holiday home ?

Weather Norway

Thanks to the Gulf Stream, Norway has a comparatively mild climate for its latitude. Even so, you can experience all 4 seasons in one day in Norway. In short – the weather in Norway varies. In spring, the country springs to life again and the days quickly get much longer. While the plants are blooming in the south, it can still be wintry and cold in the north . Nevertheless, the light entices the inhabitants and visitors back out into nature. In Summer, the sun hardly sets, especially in the North, where there is no sunset for weeks at a time. The weather in Norway at this time of year is mild, warm and comparatively dry. In autumn, the huge forested areas plunge into vibrant colours, the days get shorter again, mushrooms and berries are ready for harvest and it's a great season for lots of outdoor activities, such as hiking. In winter, the weather in Norway brings with it a magical winter wonderland. Many regions can rely on snow, so there are lots of opportunities to take part in winter sports in Norway. In the north, there are a few weeks where the sun doesn't come up, which gives you a good chance of setting your eyes on the Northern Lights . A holiday home break in Norway is worth it at any time of the year, since every season offers something special. Take a look at the weather in Norway here!
