This site consists of various cabins about 10 mins drive from the centre of Geiranger town. Great views over the fjord, some noise from traffic negotiating the steep hairpins south of the town. Cabin (a 'small cabin') was tidy and clean. Felt OK for 2 people, but perhaps a bit cramped for 4 adults.

In August 2014 we spent three days in Geiranger and the Fossen Camping. In fact, we were supposed to stay at the Vinje Camping, but for some reasons we were moved to the Fossen Camping. For sure, we didn't regret the changing ! A very nice and helpfull owner welcomed us and showed us the cabin where we could stay... More

We've been in many places during our trip (end of July) - this was one of the best! Very clean and nice, plenty of light, very well equipped (the kitchen and bathroom look completely new). Just few steps from our terrace we had a small waterfall, and the fjord view from the cabin is amazing. We took extra large cabin... More

Small and dark cabin, there are bigger cabins on the camping. No roof above the terras of the rented cabin.With rain you must sit inside. I think they should replace the matrasses, the matrasses in our cabin where not that good. Welcome at the reception unfriendly, they put the register under my face and the bill, no friendly welcome at... More

I have to say, that this is the place you want to stay in Geiranger. Of course you don´t expect premium luxurious accommodation but this one is fairly good for those who are more adventureous and kind of hikers. Yes the wooden interior is dated little but it is very clean and the standard is just fine. And for the... More

We spent two days in Fossen Camping, the cabin was cozy and clean, the verandah overlooks the Geirangerfjord, what a view, and you have walking trails nearby, starting from Vesteras Camping. The only cons were that we had to pay in cash, they don´t accept credit cards ( we had to pay the bank comission for the cash) and you... More

We stayed here for one night at cabin #9 and enjoyed a great view. The place is clean and we loved the balcony and the view. We enjoyed a basic kitchen for light meals and overall found the place to be quite and comfortable. We paid around 800 k including towels and linens. Will stay here again

We stayed here one night while exploring the Norwegian Fjords in a cabin. The cabins are a little tired but fairly clean and tidy. The best bit however is the view. The cabins are perched on the edge of the fjord looking down on the cruise ships and over activity. Bedding can be provided as can towels and the cabins... More
