Welcome to Sofia`s house by the quiet, calm waters of Sørfjorden. In the old days the fjord was the main road to Bergen for people who lived on this farm.

  • Winters are mild this close to the fjord. We usually have only a few days of snow, and there is hardly any wind here.
  • View from the deck in November. It is 11:00 am and the sun is up only a few hours, barely looking over the mountains.
  • Path downwards to Sofia`s house. 30m walk from where you park.

  • Both bedrooms have view of the fjord.
  • Sofias old bed. This bed is shorter than normal (only 185cm long), so not suitable for tall guests.

  • Evenings on the 28 square-meter deck in front of the house.
  • We also have grey, rainy days and fluctuating weather. Wear proper clothes and shoes when visiting us and fjords in Western Norway.

  • Enjoy being surrounded by fjords at Osterøy close to Bergen, Voss, Flåm and Hardanger.
  • Hike this peak: Orrkleivhaugen 359m. Trail is above the house. 1-2 hours roundtrip depending on what route you go.
