Cabin rental simply doesn't get any better than this. Viki Fjordcamping is a very small cabin and camping complex built directly over the rocks that form the edge of Lusterfjord. The setting is absolutely breathtaking, and the rates are reasonable.
I'm attaching three photos to this review, which I hope will help the place speak for itself.
Reservations were easy through the Viki Fjordcamping [-------] The owner was as kind and helpful as could be, both before and during our stay. The location is between the small towns of Luster and Gaupne, with each one only a few miles away, so it's easy to get to a bank, restaurant, grocery store, or whatever else you need.
Each cabin unit is built into the sharp mountainside at the edge of the water. From the back of a unit, you walk in at ground level. From the front of a unit, you sit on a high balcony built on stilts, looking out over the water of the fjord toward the waterfall on the facing mountainside. The fronts of the cabins are loaded with windows so that you don't have to miss out on the gorgeous view in uncooperative weather.
The interiors are pine from floor to ceiling, which is very cozy and befitting of the location. The furnishings are comfortably utilitarian and also befitting. Nothing is tacky or tattered, but neither is it luxurious. You can bring your own linens or rent them for a small charge.
Our kitchenette was well stocked with the dishes and utensils we needed for a few days of meals, and the refrigerator was big enough to hold the groceries we bought. Given the cost of eating out in Norway, making daytime sandwiches and cooking dinners in the cabin saved us over $25 per person, per day.
We were in a unit with its own bathroom, which was big with a large shower and good water pressure. But a very small single-unit water heater did create a need for strategically timed showers.
On warm nights, you can open the windows and sleep to the sound of the waterfall crashing on the other side of the fjord. For cool nights, there is a heating unit.
There are boats and a variety of water toys available, but we can't comment on those because an unusally late spring kept us off the water during our stay.
We were surprised to find that it was requested that we clean the cabin for the next guests before leaving. There are mops and vaccuum cleaners provided with the cabin for this purpose. We weren't offended, just surprised because we've never encountered that anywhere before.
If you are going to be in the Lusterfjord area, stay here, stay here, stay here!!!
