We stayed here for one night and rented a two bedroom cottage with one bedroom on the first floor (bunk bed) and three matresses in the atic.
We loved the cottage and nature outside. The cottage seemed freshly painted in a vibrant orange colour which I simply adored. We had our own parking space next to the cottage which was great!
The terrace was nice and spcious. The cottage was really cosy and very clean. The area around was very open and peaceful. We regretted not staying there longer. Will definitely come back here and recommend it to others! It’s a 16 min drive to Geiranger center.
Free wife in the reception area.
The hosts were excellent before we even arrived, messaging us with information about mountain pass closures and alternative routes.
When we arrived, we found the huts in a pretty valley a few miles from the Geiranger Fjord. We sat on the hut's covered porch and watched the stars come out.
The huts are basic but have a fully operational kitchen and good shower room (the shower was surprisingly good!). They were beautifully quiet and we slept really well.
Very good location between Geiranger and Dalsnibba (you can see the camping from this view point!). Quiet and nice place. We had a big cottage with 2 bedrooms and private batroom- it was v. good. Beds comfortable, kitchen not so big, but ok ( some problems with preparing meals and drying dishes- no place for it).The ladder upstairs quite easy to go up&down. You can use the heating if it's cold. Very tasty fresh buns to order every day in the reception. Or you can buy breakfasts. We stayed fo 7 nights here and it was a bit problem without any even a small wardrobe or some shelves. Had to keep everything in the suitcases. But if you go for a short stay, it probably is not a problem:)) Nice place to stay!
If you like to be isolated, immersed in nature with no comforts this is as good as it gets! About a 15 minute drive from Geiranger the campsite is set in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains and waterfalls.
As well as caravan plots, there are rustic wooden cabins and far-west style Indian tents.
We got one of the basic cabins with no toilet/bathroom - this wasn’t clearly advertised when we booked but weren’t able to upgrade as it was fully booked.
The communal bathrooms were rather dirty. No TV or WiFi. It’s a drive back into the village for a restaurant or supermarket, although the website mentions an on-site snack bar and a mini market (?).
The cabin was completely uninsulated- scorching hot when we arrived so had to leave the windows open for a couple of hours for it to cool down but quite cold in the night - a small electric heater was provided.
The cooking corner was too basic to cook and the darkest part of the cabin, while wasn’t dark enough in the 2 small bedrooms so had to make do with covers on top of the windows! Also don’t expect a very comfy sleep on the bunk beds; the large sofa area was nicer to sleep on. Out at the back there was a tractor and the landscaping was very much work in progress.
Overall much more spartan than advertised and a number of the facilities described on the website didn’t materialise.
We stayed in a two bedroom cabin at Dalen Gaard. Only 5-10 min from Geiranger town center The cabin was good for 5 people, equipped with a full kitchen, table, sofa. Clean and tidy, and the office lady was welcoming and accommodating. We even had good internet (didn't expect it in the middle of the mountains) at a lounge next to the office, which was only 10 meters away from our cabin. Beautiful scenery & affordable - we saved perhaps over $100 per night compared to some three star accommodations near Geiranger town center.
