Fretheim Fjordhytter
Reviewed 19 September 2011

We were on vacation in Norway, traveling by car from Oslo to Bergen and back. Fretheim Fjordhytter stay in Flam was the highlight of our trip! Beautiful place, stunning views, comfortable accomodations. The cottages have everything you might need and are located in a private and serene location. Supermarket within walking distance. Anders is very hospitable and helpful. We are dreaming of coming back one day. Thank you very much for you hospitality!

We are a family with two children age 9 and 10. We were made welcome by Sue and Anders. The accommodation was beautiful. The views were unbelievable and you could easily spend the week just looking at the scenery.
We drove over the snow road. Went by Safari to Underdal. Spent the day in Aurland getting there in the boat that comes with the chalet.There was plenty to see and do walking was fantastic. We cannot recommend this holiday enough we will definately return

We are a family of 4 and we stayed in the house, which was fantastic. The views are amazing and it's great to be halfway up the mountain, away from the ship crowds, of which there are lots! We cooked three nights (the coop market in Flam was better than the supermarkets in Aurland) and ate at the Flamstova twice (which the kids liked) and the Fretheim hotel once (lovely service). The house was well-equipped and clean, all the living areas had lovely views. We had a very relaxing time and as it rained twice we were really happy that we had a house to spread out in rather than a hotel room to be cooped up in, and with a pingpong table too. The hosts also provided coffee, tea, sugar, and washing
liquid, which I didn't expect. The week was very relaxing and we are happy we booked the house.

My boyfriend and I were so impressed with this house, and with Flam. Granted, the scenery is incredible enough to mean that we would have been happy in tents, but our stay was just lovely.

Sue and Anders are wonderful hosts, informative, easy-going and chatty without being intrusive. The houses/huts (we stayed in the house but I checked out the huts on the last day, just to see what they're like) have living areas with stunning views out over the fjords. Stay in the house up the hill if you're a larger party (6 or more), there are four bedrooms and the living space is really large. The balcony is lovely for an evening drink of wine too!

If you're into nature and the outdoors, this is the place to go. There are walks galore, and you get a little boat with the house which is great for exploring the fjords on your own. Or you could just sit and gaze at the scenery, occasionally commenting on the sheer LUCK of it that you're there, like we did.

The houses were clean and neat, and the bed very comfortable and cosy. Really, really recommend this. We really felt like we were somewhere special. Have fun!

Our stay in Norway will be remembered as one of our best trips ever! Of the many cities and accomodations that we stayed in, the cabins in Flam at the Fretheim Fjordhytter were - by far - our favorite! The cabin was spectacular, the view grand, and the owners were wonderful - helpful and extremely kind. We had our own powerboat and with it - explored the fjiord and nearby cities. What a fantatic experience of boating, hiking and sitting in awe at such a great place.

We felt like we were in heaven and would highly recommend renting one of these cabins if you stay in Flam. In our opinion - you will not find a better accomodation in Flam for sure - but we would also say you will not find a better accomodation in may all of Norway!!! Thanks Sue and Anders!! Sandy Herrala and guests. :)

Fretheim Fjordhytter are four self catering cabins located in Flåm right on the Aurland Fjord. In spite of Flåm being a tourist trap (cruise ships anchor here), the cabins are located so that you get the feeling of calmness and being close to nature. The cabins sleep six persons in three bedrooms - we were two adults and our two grown-up children (19 and 22) so for us it was perfect. A main feature of the cabins are the panorama windows in the living room/kitchen. You can sit there for hours watching the lights change over the fjord and the mountains and watch the ships come in and leave. The cabins are extremely well equipped and come with a rowing boat with outboard motor (and safety vests) per cabin. Oh yes, and Anders and Sue, who own the cabins are very nice people and welcome you with a carton of their homemade apple juice!

Flåm is a beautiful place to completely unwind and Fretheim Fjordhytter is just the accommodation you'll need to bring it all together. We stayed in Cottage #4 which is conveniently found on several of the postcards we purchased. Having access to a beach provided endless entertainment for our 7 yr old (warning … water is very cold). Anders was kind enough to pick us up at the train station (a wonderful way to get to the town) and show us to the cottage. We loved having access to the little boat for short excursions on the fjord. The cottage was very clean and most importantly, the beds were very comfortable. Cool air in June and warm comforters on the bed made it perfect for sleeping with the window opened. And sleep we did despite the fact that it didn't get real dark. The views from the window and deck were amazing. Would sit outside with a glass of beer and a book and just take it all in. If you should wake up in the middle of the night, check out the view … different colors but lovely just the same. We also enjoyed the wood stove on the chilly nights. This is an absolute winner! Thank you Sue and Anders for a wonderful holiday!
