One of the most amazing stays we have ever been. Osa was incredibly beautiful, and the Basecamps personnel were very helpful in guidance and tips for hiking trips in Osa and the surrounding environment. The yurts are a recommendation if you want to truly experience the Nordic nature, they are clean and a unique experience. Oh yeaj, pancake breakfast with local jellies!
Our stay at the Hardanger Basecamp was amazing. The area and setting is very beautiful with the OSA fjord and the surrounding mountains. We stayed in a Tipi tent which was very nice and comfortable. The activities available at the B Nature center are really the icing on the cake. We did the guided Kayaking and the Fire making workshop and I must say they were really brilliant. For someone who has not tried kayaking before, I totally recommend taking a guided tour. With the Fire making workshop we got to learn so much about how we could start a camp fire out of basic things, which I personally found to be very interesting learning experience. Overall Kudos to Hardanger Basecamp, a must visit place if you are in Norway.
The hostel yurt is beautiful. It's large, with animal hides on the walls and a big table in the center. There are small "rooms" made of a bunk bed, small shelves & a space for luggage. There are electric lights & an outlet for charging phones. Each room can be closed off with a curtain. It's a 2 minute walk over a rough path to the bathroom & showers, which are clean & nice. An entomologist was staying in the hostel while we were there and the man who runs the place, Robert, showed us some of the bugs he had available for us to eat (sorry, couldn't do it!) Breakfast of all you can eat Belgian pancakes & coffee was included. This place is gorgeous, off the beaten path, at the end of a fjord. Robert gave us a great suggestion for a hike. (Note: a 3-4 hour hike in Norwegian translate to a 6 hour hike for a flatland Illinoisan!) If it was cheaper, I'd give it 5 stars & would have stayed longer. It's pricey, but if you want a cool experience, check it out.…
We stayed 3 night in our yurts in Norway. It was the highlight of our trip. Our yurts was with a view of the fjords, it was amazing. It was really back to basics. We got a fire workshop and a lot of other information. The fire workshop was very good, when we makes fire for the first time, is was fantastic. The yurt was beautiful and in the middle of the nature. The yurt was al little bit small for five persons. The badroom was far away… So it was al lot of walking. But it was a very nice place to stay 3 nights. I will defenitly go back!
In Osa just by a fantastic fjord. Faraway from masse tourism. Back to nature. Relaxed and confortable atmosphere. Amazing landscape. Very nice, friendly and interesting people working here. If you want to experience Norway without all the busses, campingcar or cruise boat, you should choose Hardanger Basecamp. This place is just so cool!
