Stay in this cute, haunted hotel for the history. Comfortable rooms. Great service. Food is expensive but there are other food options very close by, including a grocery.

... It was about as steep and narrow as in the mountains of Morocco (doable) but we were in a giant bus (not-so doable, we thought). Brittany cringed at every turn, but hey, we're not dead. Our Norway in a Nutshell itinerary said we would have to wait by the ship dock for about four hours before our cruise started, which seemed like a real bummer because there was nothing there but a crummy gift shop.

... Voss is an extreme sport capital and that every year, thousands of people descend on Voss to participate in all sorts of parasailing, kayaking, mountain biking, and other competitions.
Voss has something like 15,000 residents, which makes it uch larger than Flam (500). It has multiple restaurants, multiple hotels, lots of shopping, a church, a few museums, and is more of a city and not a quaint pastoral village. If we had booked a hotel on our own, ...

Our one night stay at the Fretheim Hotel was enjoyable – although I think Trevor nearly had a heart attack when we dined in ...

There was an awesome outside area too, with a bit that you could climb up onto the rocks for an amazing view over Bergen. We went for a walk down to the supermarket, but it was closed and apparently there weren't any restaurants close by, so we went back to the hostel and ordered some pizza, which they do there. We sat on the rocks looking at the ...
... with Norway written on them, funnily enough. Tina decided she didn't want one because when she was at home she wouldn't be in Norway - then again we’re never in 'reebok' but i suppose there is a weird sort of logic. The ship dwarfs the houses. Walked up to take a look at a pretty waterfall and then back to the ship for lunch. The river was pretty amazing; in fact the whole place was very like Yosemite but with more water. Was supposed to be 22 and sunny today ...
