Property Description

Eplet is a eco guesthouse and basecamp in Sognefjord, Western Norway. Bikerental. We have run for 20 years and if you have been here once - you always want to return. Many do:)

Its EASY to get here with public transport (also bus to/from the glacier every day) - just ask us at or check

It's the perfect basecamp for a backpacking adventure: hiking, biking, kayaking, glacier and relaxing at the fjord beach.

We focus on a warm, friendly atmosphere. We have a cosy living room with a library, jazz music. Two well-equipped kitchens. Hammocks in the garden. Fresh vegetables and berries. Fresh juices for sale from our own production. Does it sound like a small paradise? Welcome.

Eplet offer light and clean rooms, a spacious 7- bed dorm and a small campsite for tents only. For solo - travellers, couples, families young and old. TWe 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!

Absolutely amazing place! The Hostel Eplet is not a stopover on the way to somewhere, it is a destination itself! They have private rooms, a dormitory, and a small place for the tents in the garden. Nice kitchen, a terrace to have the breakfast or dinner with a view over the village and the fjord. Bike rent is available, with well maintained bikes. At the reception one can buy some basic grocery, and the local made apple juices and jams of various kind. The owner is super kind and helpful!

Eplet was a wonderful place to stay in the sleepy little town of Solvorn. The hosts were fantastic; we showed up pretty late and they were very responsive and even made us a fire! They also gave us some awesome recommendations for nearby hikes.
