We chose to split up the Norway in a Nutshell trip by spending the night in Aurland at Vangsgaarden Gjestgiveri. We chose a cabin on the water with a great fjord view. The cabin was clean and comfortable. You have to make your own beds and we found stuffing the duvets to be a bit difficult. The breakfast was good... More

We were 2 families with 6 of us and booked 2 cottages. The place has a great view of the fjord and having a kitchen helped with us needing vegetarian options and cooking what we need The hotel has great hospitality and the host was really helpful We highly recommend the place for stay when visiting flam

We found Vangsgaarden Gjestgiveri by chance, as no bookings were left in Flam, being on trip with Fjordtours.com ("Norway in a nutshell") A very nice family hotel, well furnished, with restaurant, where you will feel comfortable at home, in an outstanding and easy location. (on the edge of the fjord, only 1min. from the port, 5min. walking from a small... More

Very relaxed place and a perfect spot for exploring the surrounding area. The room was spacious and the furniture rather new - we particularly liked the fresh wooden smell. The guesthouse, which is family run, is surrounded by a cute garden, a nice bar/restaurant with a terrace overlooking the fjord (plan your meal for sunset time for a spectacular experience)... More

I stayed here for one night on my way to the Gudvangen-Kaupangen ferry. The hotel is nice, the village is lovely, with great views. The local pub/restaurant serves affordable and good food. The main problem with the room is that the beds are really not comfortable at all, and it is not possible to get a good night sleep.

Last minute arrival at this hotel and could not have received a lovelier reception. Astrid is wonderful and even made sure we could order some food as the kitchen at the local pub was closing. Forever grateful. Thank you!

Away from the tourist mad but better known Flam in the heart of the Western Norway Fjords lies this little gem. Right by crystal clear waters of the Aurlandsfjord, Vangsgaarden is a small family run guest house with lots of history. Immaculate and charming. Very friendly hosts& a great restaurant attached. Highly recommended. We had great weather too...what more could... More

We rented a cabin for two nights at Vangsgaarden. Beautiful location, cabins are literally on the water and the view was magnificent. Clean, comfortable, had the basics for preparing simple meals (we brought our own food). There was a coffee maker and an electric kettle as well. One bedroom with two single beds, one loft (VERY low ceiling and steep... More

Charming hotel/guesthouse with simple rooms , some offering great views on the fjord. The breakfast has all what you need and the cafe serves delicious fishes. It is very close to Flåm but signifucantly less crowded. Really perfect for a 2-3 nights stop on your fjord tour.

This place was just my cup of tea. I didn't know exactly what to expect because the photos and write-ups didn't make it completely clear. But what we got exceeded my expectations. The fact that the weather was just perfect may have helped with my experience but this place would be lovely at just about any time, I think. And... More
