                                                                                                      5 of 5

Considering how expensive Norway is to visit, it is also good value for money. Extras can be paid for on site e.g. linen; fire wood; washing machine and final cleaning if required. Internet connection was quite variable, perhaps depending on how many other visitors were online? However, sufficient to keep in touch with family. Overall? Definitely recommended. One point to stress is that this particular cabin would not be suitable for people with mobility issues, due to the access path from the car parking.
