Eventually getting around to Holiday Cabins. They are absolutely brilliant, cheap as chips, and in west Norway there are hundreds of them. Check out this link for info about where they are and costs etc..
If you click on the "Map Search" it shows that there are over 1000 in Hordaland, over 900 in Sogn & Fjordane, and over 600 in Møre & Romsdal. These 3 areas being the main West Norway regions.
Prices for weekly hire are very good, and even if you want to travel around from cabin to cabin, the 1 night charges are reasonable compared to hotels. Depending on season a single night will mostly range from 500 kroner to 700 kroner, with some cheaper, and some dearer. And most of the cabins can sleep a family easily.
On our recent trip to Shetland we drove to Bergen for our flight. It's a 450-500km drive, depending on which route you take, and because of ferries it will take about 10 hours. So breaking the trip with a night in a cabin makes sense.
On the way down we stayed in this one at Førde.
On the way north we stopped at Egge, in the Gloppen community, at this beauty which was built in 1836.
This one cost 600 kroner and could sleep 5.
The same folk who own this one have several cabins in the area, including this one which we rented 2 years ago.
Here's an interior shot of the sitting room in the last one we stayed in at Egge.
The more modern cabins are well thought out in that respect, but steps like these on an older one could be a problem.
Also it's a rule with most cabins that you clean up after you. So here's my peerie dishwasher getting to grips with the washing up. ;)
Mopping the floor before we left, the flash went of just as the mop touched the cable to the TV. She thought she'd blown something up, and I thought I was going to pee myself laughing.
Yun's aa fir enoo.
