Property Description

Eplet is a small family run guesthouse at the head of Sognefjord, Western Norway.

It's the perfect basecamp for a backpacking adventure in the fjords or for those just wanting to be in nature and peace. Our guests are backpackers, solo travellers, couples, families, old, young... and from all corners of the world!

We focus on a warm, friendly atmosphere and a relaxing and fun experience rather than luxurious facilities - there are enough fancy hotels around. We have a cosy living room with a library, jazz music and oil lamp in the evenings. There are two well-equipped kitchens for you to use and in our garden you can pick your own herbs and vegetables (in return for a bit of weeding!) We have hammocks in the garden, a nine-hole crocket golf course and a slack line. In the evenings you can join us to bottle feed the lambs. In the reception you can buy fresh strawberries picked at Eplet the same morning, and if you are lucky we may have some spare eggs from our chickens. Does it sound like a small paradise? Welcome.

We offer light and clean rooms all with a fantastic fjord view. All of our private rooms are newly renovated (2016) and sound-proofed. The facitlities are basic but all you need, and all the rooms use shared bathrooms. We are living a good and simple country life. At Eplet you'll find no unnecessary luxury, but a lot of charm, amazing views and good memories. Our aim is to make you feel at home. We are very honest and there are no hidden costs.

Eplet is also a small fruit juice producer. We grow berries and fruits that we press and bottle in the basement. We make around 15,000 litres of juice every year that we sell in the region. When you stay at Eplet you are part of a working local farm.

Eplet is a perfect basecamp for activities in the Sognefjord region. Hike mountains with spectacular views, kayak and swim in the second longest fjord in the world, have a walk on the largest glacier on mainland Europe and go on some great bike rides. Guests at Eplet get a discount for rental bikes and there are 3 different bike routes that we highly recommend. A lot of our guests regret booking just 2 or 3 nights, so we would highly recommend staying 4-7 nights. The bikes are free to borrow if you stay 5 nights or more.

Eplet is a small and popular place, and in the middle of summer we can't fit everybody in. We get most bookings directly, but we are also available for online booking through Hostelworld.

We are open 20th April to 1st October. We are also open in April on request.

We are so happy to have you staying with us. You make Eplet alive. Welcome! View House Rules

    This was the best hostel I've ever stayed at. It was cozy, and the village was beautiful and quiet--not very many tourists at all. There is also so much to do around the area and the reception explains all of the options very clearly. I think what Eplet has done is beautiful, and would love to come back one day.

    Eplet is a well-planned, efficient hostel. It seems they have thought of everything, from the waste-reduction bins to the well-supplied kitchen. The rooms have excellent lighting; the beds are extremely comfortable. Most of all, the buildings and environs are beautiful. Their orchard is as well-tended as their entire home-away-from home. All this makes for a lovely stay.

    We enjoyed our stay here so much, the owners and staff were delightful and the location was perfect. The other guests were a joy to exchange our daily activities with, it was positively wonderful. Met people from France, England and the US and enjoyed our conversations. The kitchen was handy and perfect.

    Great place, great location, great atmosphère, but only one shower for the whole bulding + camping ? It was quient when I was there so it was ok but it must be a problem when the hostel is full.

    Absolutely amazing property nestled in Sognefjord many close by activities. Staff is very kind and helpful. Kitchens desperately need microwaves - campers/backpackers need an easy way to heat up food!
