We were originally meant to stay at Fleischers but at the last minute they closed for 2 weeks and transferred our booking to here. The public areas are all really nice and the staff equally so. However the room was pretty ordinary but nonetheless clean with comfy beds which are our two main criteria.
We had lovely lake views from our room with a tiny little balcony opening off it.
The big surprise for us was our dinner on both nights - we were doing the Norway in a Nutshell tour and dinner was included. Many years of travel mean that we don't have particularly high expectations of included dinners - good basic food usually, sometimes quite bland. Not so at the Park - poached salmon with caramelised onions, tender beef fillet with roast vegies and creme brulee with fresh berries on the first night. And the second night was equally awesome - baked cod on garlic mash, melt in your mouth veal fillet with vegies, pannacotta with raspberry sorbet. Two absolutely outstanding meals. As is normal in Norway watch out for the wine costs - even house wine was about $15 a glass.

... our farewells and caught the train to Voss. It is a pretty little town which I think is popular for skiing in winter. We thought the train trip here would be very scenic but we only caught glimpses of the scenery because a lot of the time we were going through tunnels. I hope tomorrow will be better. It was raining a bit when we arrived but we didn't have far to walk. We are in a hostel and there are quite ...
... Cruise ship leaves and the last train has left the station, it becomes very quiet. Heimly Pensionate is a ten minute walk around the waterfront and our room has an unobstructed view of the Aurlandsfjord. A light misty rain has come in, lending a touch of atmosphere to the view. That evening we have a light meal at the Flam Marina across the way and return to enjoy the view from the room.
The next morning we feast at the breakfast ...
... Voss where we stayed in a cabin.
When we entered our cabin there's not one cup, plate, knife, fork. Nothing. Why don't they tell you when you book in? There's a good market here for some smart people to turn this whole industry on it's head.
Tomorrow it's maybe back to Sweden.
... to say, this spike in temperature was a real treat! After the hike, we started the two hour voyage along the fjord to Lofthus where we will be for the next two days. To pass the time, I broke out my card game Scabble Slam. Not a bad way to pass the time. We arrived at the Hotel Ullensvang family owned since 1846. The composer Edvard Grieg spent many a summer here composing music. The hotel is fantastic! The beauty of the mountains and fjord are just ...
Our self-guided tour with 'Norway in a nutshell' began in Bergen with an 830 train to Voss - beautiful scenery - where we caught a bus to Gudvagen (this took us up and then down a narrow, twisty 'old road' through the mountains. What a view! Tons of waterfalls and hair-pin turns. At Gudvagen we had a short stop to admire our first real view of the fjords (sognefjord), and then boarded the ferry that would take us to our stop for the night, the ...
