We have been in Kalvåg at Knutholmen six years in a row and that says it all. The Fosse family who runs Knutholmen does the utmost to make the guests feel welcome. Kalvåg itself is a tiny fishing village where not much happens and that is the great thing about it as you can slow down and relax completely. Or... More

A lovely stay, eating at Knutholmen, relaxing in Carolas Buaspa, and exercising with a mountain walk to the highest hill at the Frøya Island, Fanneskard 379 moh. The seafood at Knutholmen is delicious, with scallops, lobster, crab and other tasty Seafood dishes available. The service were also fantastic.

I took my colleagues to Kalvåg and we had a great time. Excellent food with a local touch. Outstanding atmosphere and friendly staff. We will definitely be coming back. The quality of the food is unexpected at such a small place and makes the experience extra special.

We had an overnight stay while travelling north along the coast from Bergen. This had been recommended as interesting and proved worth the deviation off the beaten track. There is old world and latest accommodation available - we were put in the just completed new "wing". It was comfortable and well finished, dinner and breakfast more than adequate (there are...

When you start looking at the map of Kalvåg and plot out what is part of the Knutholmen hotel, you kind of get a feeling that it incorporates most of the town. It is somewhat sadening, knowing what once drove these old fishing villages forward. It was food production. Today, large trawlers have taken over that market. So, tourism is... More

From the reception of my first call through to checking out we experienced an attitude of friendliness and high quality. We arrived late (due to a hike in the mountains, to Hornelen) and was welcomed and upgraded to an apartment instead of a room with extra bed. The dockside apartment was very nice with a view to the entire harbour.... More

A definite stop place if you are at this side of Sogn og Fjordance, it does not matter how you come here, by car or by boat, this place will make you feel welcome and at home. Food at the restaurant is very fresh, service is awesome. Fishing here is great, you can catch lots of crabs and Makrel!!!

Lunch has an abbreviated menu, so it is best to arrive after 4:00 PM to enjoy the seafood platter and a greater variety of main dishes. Nevertheless, the fish is locally caught and extremely fresh. The service is friendly. The entire experiencw is relaxing, as thogh you were transported to earlier simpler times. Kalvag is a beautiful village at the... More
