Exceeds Expectations, Insane value, best trip ever

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about how helpful, friendly, and hospitable the family Brekke(all members encountered) were to my friend and I. Heidi is a superb host and as down to earth as a landlady could be. The owner's even had their mother open the local shop after hours on our arrival so that I could buy my groceries for the week. The cabin(hytte) defines cozy and views from the dining windows would cost a fortune anywhere else. If nature and the outdoors are your close companions then you've stumbled upon some of their greatest performances in Ortnevik. There are not enough stars for the rating this little gem deserves.

Fascinating family farm in a stunning location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the Stone Cabin was one of the highlights of our trip! Our family of four loved everything about our few days in Ortnevik-- the views from the cabin, the cats and other animals, the obvious care for the environment shown by the owners, and the general feeling of peace and relaxation. While we did not get to meet Eldar, he gave great information in advance, and we enjoyed very much chatting with his mother and touring the incredible sculpture park that his father has built (especially the magical miniature Stave Church-- really incredible!) The location is remote, but we found it surprisingly easy to coordinate our ferries from the north side of fjord and get there with no problems-- we also really enjoyed the ferry ride and day in Vik (especially delivering mail to tiny towns along the way-- my children were fascinated by this!) I just wish we could have stayed longer-- we look forward to returning!

Peaceful & cosy cabin in a brilliant location for exploring

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was the perfect place to hideaway and relax. We enjoyed long walks exploring the fantastic local scenery - we didn't see another soul on a full day hike. A BBQ while enjoying the spectacular view from the cabin was the perfect way to spend our evenings. Can't wait to return!

Cozy and scenic

  • 5 of 5

We only had 2 nights to spend at the stone cabin (because it was booked for so much of the summer!) and we wish that we could have stayed a bit longer. We found pretty much everything that we needed at the cabin, and when we needed firewood for the grill, I emailed and had some in the cabin in under an hour. The view is unbelievable, and we enjoyed the trails around the area.

Stunning location

  • 5 of 5

These cabins are perfect for what we wanted. Situated in a picturesque location overlooking the valley below. We were able to go for many walks direct from the cabin and also took a day trip on the ferry to Vik.

We hired a car from Bergen airport which was handy to help get to and from (and bring food in for our stay). On our way there we drove around the fjord and on the way back took the high pass road instead. There are lots of picnic spots enroute so you can get out and have a walk in amazingly different landscapes.

I would love to go back - Highly Recommend

Beautiful, tranquil location, wonderful carvings

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the smaller log cabin- what a cute and cosy place to hide away in for a week! The owner and his family were so helpful and the cats were very friendly! We went on a few walks around the area, the one that started off at the cabin was the best. The day trip to Vik on the ferry was great, loved the stave church- will have to come back in the Summer so we can look inside! The local shop was very handy and the halibut farm was very interesting, well worth a visit for some time out. Thank you :D
