The cabin is clean and there is cooking facility inside. The bed sheets and the towels can be rented for NOK100 per set. However, we discover that there is no soap and shampoo after the reception is closed and it is too late to go to supermarket in Geiranger town 2 km away.

The cabin has a good fjord view. The cruise boats arrive early. So if you want some photos with the fjords as background, better wake up early.

It is a good starting point to drive to Trollstigen, RV63, for the magnificent view.

We stayed in a 26 sq m cabin here for four nights. Location wise its quite hard to beat this place, it is right by the fjord about 2km from Geiranger town centre. You will need a bike/car if you are planning to stay more than a few days. Reception is friendly and helpful and someone was always around till 9PM or so. The cabin was clean, practical all the equipments and facilities mentioned in their website were there and functional. Even though wifi isn't listed as available for the smaller cabins we were receiving signal off and on.

Overall we enjoyed our stay here, if we are visiting Geiranger again we can easily consider staying here.

We visited this camping in 2009. In our opinion this campsite is too expensive.
For car + caravan + 2 kids (15 y.) + strom you pay 320 NOK ! For almost NO (free) facilities.
(so, owner, this is with 2 kids, NOT with 4...!!).

With the very, very touristic village of Geiranger nearby and the daily passing cruiseships, the surroundings of this camping are quite 'Disneylandlike', so NOT the 'real' outdoor Norway.

Our experience was that the facilities on this camping are poor, especially for the younger kids. The owner has the opinion that there is more then enough to do, but he only mentions walking and renting a boat. Well, well...

One can rent boats on lots of locations in Norway, often for low tariff. Or for a bit more NOK's, but then it's not per hour, but for half a day. Petrol included.
On this camping guests do rent a boat often, but this could mean that these guests do not know what it costs elsewhere. Furthermore it does mean anyway that the suggested popularity of the boatrental is the reason to ask high rental tariffs, because that's quite often ' how it works ', economically.

Then there are two tariffs for (the size) of caravans.
We do not understand this, because (at least in high season) caravans on this camping are placed with the back or with the front to the fjord. Because of that, there is no difference in a caravan of 5 metres or one of 8 metres length. They all have a width of about 2.35 m. Regarding the way guests need to 'park' there caravans, it would be more 'fair' then if you pay more if you use extra space because of the width of a caravan (mounted awnings !!), so not for the length.

The accommodation was located in an ideal place with a view of the Geiranger city centre and Geirangerfjorden on the other side. Staff were welcoming. Cottages were spacious and cozy as 5 of us stayed there. Would highly recommend it to any traveller visiting Geiranger.

Price for family (children: 15 y.), car, caravan and electr.: NOK 320,-- !!

And that's just for the view, because there's almost nothing else to do.

Boat rental perhaps ? Yes, but price on this camping for one hour is the price where you can rent a motorboat elsewhere in Norway for half a day !

Free WLAN...? Well, that's quite normal at a price of NOK 320,-- !

Dear Sir:
I am very sorry that you obviously had a bad experience staying at our camp ground in your caravan last summer. For others: You were staying at our camp ground and not in one of our cabins.

About the prices on our camp ground: If you paid NOK 320 for one night, you must have been 2 adults and 4 children + a big caravan with car and also got electricity. Unlike most other campings in Norway, we think it is fair that a big caravan with car or a big camper pays more than a small camping car. That's why we have graded our prices into three categories: 1) big caravan 2) Medium camping car 3) small camping car.
You may not like it, but we think this is fair that people that take bigger space pays more, and people that take less space pay less.
For comparision: Price for a smal camping car + 2 persons + electricity: NOK 200,- for one night.

If you visit our web site www.geirangerfjorden.net and see our new prices for 2013 you will see that the prices are not going up, they stay excactly the same as last year. Compared to the other campings in Geiranger we are now in the middle, one is more expensive, one on the same level and one is cheaper.

We have had a guest from the same country as you, Holland, coming back for over 20 years staying for 2-3 months every summer. He told me that our pries are really low. He pays more in touristic places in Holland or Germany. Camping in Western Norway is actually cheap. The prices in Western Norway is also much lower than in Eastern Norway or Southern Norway. The prices in Geiranger is in the middle: cheaper than in Eastern/southern Norway and more expensive than in Western Norway. You can't compare Geiranger to remote places in western Norway. We will always be more expensive than those places.

You also write that "there is nothing to do". I disagree very much! For me, my wife and children Geiranger is paradise in the summer time. For people that are active and like to use the nature (as we say in Norway), there is a lot to do. There are lots of fantastic walks, short or longer, easy or more difficult. You don't have to walk far to get big experiences. I will strongly advice you to visit the Skageflå farm. I will guarantee: to walk up to this farm will be you best memory from Norway.
For the walks we have a map and can advice you if you ask in the reception. All who work in the reception are experienced and know the routes.
We also have motor- and rowing boats for hire. You must remember that the prices includes petrol. You can't therefore compare our prices with the prices on the remote islands where people rent boats to stay on one spot for a week to fish. People come to us to rent boat for one or two hours drive around in the fjord to see the Seven Sisters and Bridal Veil waterfalls. Our boats are very popular and many people come to visit us for one main reason: they want to rent one of our boats.

Geiranger is very special, but isn't for everybody. People are different. If you expect a Disneyland or Waterworld you have come to the wrong place. For sure. But if you want peace and quiet and want to experience the scenery and be active: you have come to what is my paradise. That's why I (and many with me) come back year after year. This is really not my job, it is my life. And if you still think it is expensive, I can assure you that we are using every penny (NOK) to upgrade our product and making it better for our guests for next year.

LOCATION – Easy to find on the main road around the fjord. It’s just a little way from the main hub of the town which makes it a bit more peaceful. Fantastic view of the fjord right outside your cabin. There are just a few cabins on site with space for tents and mobile homes. Groceries and restaurants in the town but no petrol station.

CABIN – We stayed in the small cabin which was quite basic but comfortable and spotlessly clean. Well equipped kitchen, microwave, hotplate, coffee machine, fridge with freezer compartment and good utensils. Cable TV and WI-FI in room. Nice patio area to sit outside and enjoy the view. Very peaceful surroundings for a good night’s sleep.

FACILITIES – There is a sanitary block for those camping which we didn’t have to use a garden and a playground.

VALUE FOR MONEY – The price for the cabin itself was a tad expensive, but you are obviously paying for the location/view which did make it value for money.

SERVICE – Extremely good and friendly. All spoke very good English. Guy on reception told us when we were booking in that there was a problem with our TV and someone was returning from a nearby town with a new one. Joked that my partner was desperate to watch an international football match and they came within 10 minutes to set up the cable TV and apologised profusely

Rented a cabin of 26 m2 for some days in July 2012.
The location is really beautiful, it is a nice camping site.
But NOK 950/night for a cabin with such a low standard is really bad. Small nice kitchen but no oven, very few kitchenwares and cook wares, and no kitchen fan. Poor light.

There is just one electric radiator in the cabin- not enough, darker wooden walls and cealing and small poor lights makes the whole cabin unpleasant and dark. Paint it in white!!
No TV, no radio, no thermometer, huge lac of hooks to hang up things on.

Poor safety, no fire extinguisher, no fire blanket, but yes there is a fire alarm.

15 minutes of walk to the village of Geiranger, really nice walk!

Really, I feel fooled. This cottage is like from the 70's.
With just some more effort they could turn it into really good and I would come here again or recomend it to friends - now I will do neither of it. But as usually in Norway a lot of things are way dated back.

Room Tip: Come here with a tent or caravan instead of renting a cottage, a much better deal!
