Eplet is a small family run guesthouse at the head of Sognefjord, Western Norway. We focus on a warm, friendly atmosphere and a relaxing and fun experience rather than luxurious facilities - there are enough fancy hotels around. We have a cosy living room with a library, jazz music and oil lamp in the evenings. There are two well-equipped kitchens for you to use and in our garden you can pick your own herbs and vegetables (in return for a bit of weeding!) We have hammocks in the garden, a nine-hole crocket golf course and a slack line. In the evenings you can join us to bottle feed the lambs. In the reception you can buy fresh strawberries picked at Eplet the same morning, and if you are lucky we may have some spare eggs from our chickens. Does it sound like a small paradise? Welcome.

Beautiful setting, stayed in a tent near the apple orchard with a view on the fjord. Very friendly people, very calm surroundings but the 2 adopted lambs. Nice apple juice to buy and lots of activities in the neighbourhood. Clean kitchen and badroom + the possibility to sit inside during rain. Would definitely recommend it.

The rooms and bathroom are very clean and cosy, the welcome perfect. And the view!!! The staff can really inform you about where hiking and biking around. You can buy home made juices and there's a small grocery. There's a shared kitchen where every one has his own place.

If you like places were you help yourself with food and are looking for a special place. Visit Eple! The view from the garden over Sognefjorden is fantastic. Eplet is a family driven hostel with rooms and shared bathroom and kitchen. It has a garden with hammocks, lambs and rabbits. Yes it’s true! The apple trees is just outside the window and when we arrived in mid July fresh raspberry were sold in the small reception shop every morning. The guesthouse has a clean kitchen and cozy living room. Of course this is a place for people who likes to mingle around and share local experiences over a bear or coffees. This summer a lot of Norwegian families with children. There is no restaurants or grocery shop in Solvorn. We brought our own food from Sogndal (20 min drive). It was a good system in the fridge and shelves - each room their own place marked with room symbol. The small reception sells basic groceries and of course home made juices and jam. Solvorn has a nice beach. We were there for to nights, should have stayed longer.

Spent 5 days in the dorm at Eplet in September, after the summer rush. Beautiful location. Very relaxing with great views across the charming town below and the fjord. Large well equipped kitchens [self caterers may wish to stock up before arriving], large comfortable living room overlooking the apple orchard. Friendly, helpful staff. Website is very informative. Be advised if visiting the Urnes church across the fjord [recommended] you have to back onto the small ferry and the road running along the fjord from the church can be one very narrow lane- interesting when meeting a large truck coming the other way.

The hostel is set in a beautiful location, with enough activities to fill a week long stay ( kayaking the fjords, cycling scenic routes, hiking , glacier ) It is very clean and organized and the hosts were extremely helpful and welcoming. You will leave this place feeling calmer. I will be recommending to my friends and family.

An amazing three-night stay at Eplet. Many travellers stay longer than this and I wish I could have stayed for a few more nights. The setting is beautiful and there are loads of family-friendly day trips - glacier walks, hikes, mountain biking, kayaking (I saw sea lions!) - within easy reach of the hostel, which offers well-serviced mountain bikes to guests and non-guests. Eplet itself has a wonderful atmosphere and seems to attract very friendly families and groups. It has a lovely garden, and guests are able to pick and eat the organic fruit and vegetables. One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in - I hope to come back. I stayed in a dorm room and the beds were comfy, great showers, and everything was spotlessly clean. Kitchen is well-stocked and there is a terrace and tables set outside. They have a good supply of mountain bikes which are in good condition, one of which I used for a day trip. The indoor living room is an attractive place to crash if the weather is bad. They also have good laundry facilities. The hostel is located in a beautiful, quiet little village (Solvorn) on the Lusterfjord, tucked between two hills, and with Norway’s oldest stave church on the other side of the fjord, accessible by ferry. Arriving by car is probably best in terms of flexibility, but there are a number of buses to/from Sogndal, which is a nearby town that can be reached on a direct bus or ferry journey from Bergen (approx 5 hours).

Spent 3 nights here in varied weather conditions. The lounge and great kitchens make bad weather totally tolerable. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Plenty to occupy you for 3 days/4 nights - Urnes church and waterfall, kayaking on the fjord (seal kayak) and up on the glacier reservoir (ice troll), glacier hikes and plenty of general hikes with spectacular views. Recommended.

We absolutely loved our stay at Eplet. And Solvorn was an outstanding, tranquil, out-of-the-way place to spend a few days. When we wanted to kick back and enjoy the solitude, we could. When we wanted an adventure, we could have that too. One day was spent biking along the road across the fjord to a spectacular waterfall. The other day was spent kayaking. We also did some hiking and general exploring of the area. Would, and will, go back! If you don't mind the small rooms and a shared bathroom, this is definitely the place for you!

We stayed for a week on the camping. The camping owners are very friendly and give good suggestions on possible activities in the neighbourhood. There is a special and cosy atmosphere at Eplet. The homemade juices from the homegrown fruit (raspberries, apples, pears, ...) are very tastefull. 5 minute walk to the beach. Correction to outdated information in Trotter travel guide: WiFi is free for guests + credit cards are accepted
