For the best experience, camping under the open sky or in a tent is recommended. According to the Norwegian right to access, you may stay for up to two nights in one spot in uncultivated land if you keep away from houses and other buildings and out of the way of other people, provided that you leave no trace. If you move far away from people, you can stay for as long as you want.

  • Myrdal Fjellstove, +47 41549383 (e-mail:post@myrdalfjellstove.no), [2]. Call for information, reservations and to make sure it's open.
  • Vatnahalsen Høyfjellshotell, +47 57 63 37 22 (e-mail: vatnahalsen@c2i.net), [3]. A decent and comfortable hotel with restaurant and outdoor swimming pool. About kr. 1200 per night for a double room in the high season.

Get out[edit]

Get on Flåmsbana and enjoy one of the world's absolutely most beautiful and stunning train journeys down the valley to Flåm. With a gradient of one in eighteen on 80 % of the 20 km-long ride, you will be taken through the magnificent fjord scenery of western Norway.

If you have the guts, get on your bike to Vatnahalsen and further on through the 21 twists and turns along the 19 km of Rallarvegen down the Flåm valley.
