I cycled from Haugastol to Flåm, using the bikes supplied by Haugastol tourist centre. The route was way more adventurous than I had anticipated and the weather a little colder, but the views were amazing. Luckily the bike I rented was more prepared and took me down Navvies road without too much walking. I would definitely recommend the experience to anyone who enjoys wild nature and has some experience of off road cycling.

We stayed here for three nights (2 adults plus 2 boys aged 12 and 10). We travelled by train from Oslo and were the only people to get off at the Haugastol stop! We walked to the hotel which was a bit tricky as it was a gravel path and we had suitcases but we were later told we could have called for a pick up. We asked them to give us a lift back at the end of our stay and it was no trouble. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. We had gone for half board. There’s nowhere else if you don’t have transport. Luckily, the food was fantastic. Amazing spread of meats, cheeses, cereal and fresh bread for breakfast (which you could make a packed lunch from) and really good quality food in the evening. There was no choice for dinner but it was nothing too far out! Extensive list of craft beers to enjoy. Note that they also offer wood fired pizzas if you don’t go for the half board option. On our first day we hired bikes and cycled to Finse and back. Weather was amazing and, although it was challenging, we were never in danger of not making it. Quite a few uphill sections on the way but made for an easier return. Total distance 54km. No refreshments or facilities between Haugastol and Finse despite a cafe advertising itself to be open. We had planned to hike on our second day and we did get out a little but weather was pretty wet so we ended up relaxing in our room. The sleeping arrangements were the only slight downside as the “family beds” in each room of the type B apartment consisted of a very small double with a bunk above. The small double was not very comfortable for two adults. Also note that the room was not serviced during our stay and you help yourself to soap, toilet rolls and fresh towels from the corridor. Beautiful view from our balcony. In my opinion, the total cost of our stay was reasonable given the very high cost of food and drink in Norway.

As a German family of four we followed the Webpage advise and pre-booked a weekend package which included excellent half-board, bunk-beds in the B-type apartment, bikes and train transportation. On a perfect sunny day we decided to take the train to Finse and bike down to Flam, which was the right decision. The landscape is absolutely stunning and one of the best experiences of our 2 week Norway visit. We took three basic bikes (8 gears one single frame size, approx 40€;) and one mountain bike (80€ !! crazy rental price). The upper third of the track to Flam still has many larger rocks and therefore required focus on the track instead of the landscape. This could easily improved with a couple of truck loads of sand. People at the Turistsenter have been very friendly and helpful. All perfectly organized with a 19:30 and a 20:15 dinner shift. The two buffet dinners have been by far the best food experience of our holiday. Thanks to all who have been preparing food for us. Several vegetable and salad choices, a delicious freshly prepared meat meal and an absolutely stunning selection of home made cakes and other fresh deserts. Our B type apartment had a relatively large lake-view living room and a kitchen. The latter was really not needed since we had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. Most of the interior was already quite old and functional. We spent a perfect time in Haugastøl but the high price charged is not acceptable in my view. If it wasn’t for that I would have given 5 stars.

Response from Bjørn K, Owner at Haugastol Turistsenter
Responded Aug 5, 2018
Hi! Thanks for review. We are glad to hear that food, service and apartment was appreciated. But the 3 stars for price feels a bit unfair. In your package all train tickets are included. The Flåm Railway, train to Finse/Hallingskeid and Myrdal-Haugastøl are all included for the persons and the bikes. So half of the price you paid are out of our control. You could have booked it all separately and paid less to us, but your total price would be higher. (and the work you have with finding the right tickets). We are lower priced than our competition both for bikes, accommodation and food. In your package breakfast, lunch, warm drink to bring with you on the trip and dinner is included for two nights. So you everything is included. Biking Rallarvegen is in no way the cheapest holiday you will find, but the value you get for your money is high. (at least thats the consensus from all reviews and feedback we get). As long as we keep getting consistent good reviews for the services we are in control if we are happy, but we will try to do a better job of showing what you are paying for so we avoid poor reviews like this one. PS. Bikes come in 6 different frame sizes, but you daughters/wife is about the same height, so thats why they got the same frame size. Hope you had a good time in Oslo on the way back to Germany.

What it lacks in amenities, it more than makes up for in genuine appeal. Spent a night here in advance of riding the Rallarvegen. To be clear, this is an older property; things are worn and the accommodations are modest. But the feel is of a real country lodge; the staff are attentive; and the pizza is wonderful. They also have a full bike shop for equipment rental.

I have a cabin at Haugastøl so I will stay here 10-20 times every year. Walking/running in the mountains.The nature is fine all the year. Bicycling, take the train to Finse and walk to run back. The weather can be hard, but still I like it.
