In Norway it is very common to stay in hytter( cottages/cabins) while on holiday - especially may be for families. Most of them are very well equipped.

You will find hytter all over Norway, and concerning your areas read more and choose at:

www.sognefjord.no ( Balestrand)


Have a nice stay.

Hello HoneySophie

We have just returned from Norway and have had a great time, staying mostly in the hytter (cabins). They are all charming, clean, well equipped and a delight to stay in. The cost for a cabin that sleeps four is NK320 (that's what we paid, except Bergen where the charge was NK390 and the cabins the least pleasant and not so well equipped). For a larger cabin with 3 bedrooms, a shower and WC plus small kitchen, expect to pay NK750. They are mostly all situated in lovely places with great views, the Geiranger ones overlook the fjord and the cruise boats. The cabins are very popular so you may need to book; we were technically out of season so no pressure when we were there except the wekends when all the Norwegian families descended on the cabins!!

Absolutely book fast! They were already sold out in 3 places I tried for my trip at the end of July to the beginning of August. Just so you know, it is one "hytte" and many "hytter". All the websites below have an English option unless otherwise noted.





www.fjordpass.no (discount card for hotels, camping & hytter)


www.hytternorge.no (only in Norwegian!)

Good advice above to also check the websites for the cities or regions you wish to visit - they usually have a link to local sites.

Lykke til! LL

also try Novasol, they have an agent in the UK by the name of Norsac.

you can still book with this agent even if you don't live in the UK.

hope you find what you are looking for.
