The staff and materials available were very helpful. Definitely a worth while stop. Would have been a great place to rent a bike, although we decided not to.

Quiet and functional, nice staff and all you need to know if you're travelling among the fjords. Get all the timetables for buses and ferries there since there is very very scarce info elsewhere

The lady as the desks was extremely helpful in getting us situated with bikes and with maps of the area. Go there for any questions and she can answer them all about the area. She is very friendly as well!!
