The small fjord arms of Vetlefjorden and Sværefjorden are among the most sheltered waters on the Sognefjord. Only 100 m from the chalets, owner Inge Menes, also has a small fuel filling station. Activities  

- It is only a 30 minute drive to the top of the Gaularfjell mountains, a fine starting point for mountain hikes with several   marked trails along the fantastic Gaular water course (Waterfall Path). We have local hiking maps for sale.

- It is 10 minutes by boat to the other side of the fjord where there is a sunny bathing area with fine sand.

- Balestrand is only 15 km away where you can find hotels, restaurants, an aquarium and art exhibitions among other things    and where you can also rent bicycles.

- The Norwegian Glacier Museum and glacier arms at Fjærland can be reached by car or by a tourist boat from Balestrand.   There is also a hiking trail in Fjærland to Flatbrehytta (by an arm of the Jostedal glacier).

- In late summer/early autumn you can pick lots of berries and mushrooms in the vicinity eg blueberries, raspberries,   cloudberries, chanterelles and ceps.

- You can also rent a kayak from us for a peaceful tour on the fjord.
