review: What a wonderfully quiet and beautiful place, in Tau. Wonderful apartment with almost everything available. nice modern decor. nice owner. beds slept really great. that you also want at home. kitchen is present only is this in the garage where you can so to use this full kitchen. Here you will also find a drying rack a washing machine and a shoe dryer. There is no breakfast available, but you can make yourself very well in this kitchen. You can make beautiful walks here. for example the walk to Preikestolen. You are only 19 km away from here. we thought it was really great here, especially because everything was thought into every little detail. there is a kettle with tea and coffee. shampo with the shower a hair dryer and wonderful underfloor heating and a welcome card on your bed. I can therefore highly recommend this accommodation and certainly for the price. We loved it just do it guys!

Vassel Gård ***

Herand  - Norway

from 11 Sep - 12 Sep 2018


What a wonderfully quiet place nearby, in Herand. Beautiful barn / cottage with everything available. nice old decor. beds slept wonderfully there is only one bedroom but there is still a folding bed available that you can put in the living room. kitchen is available. there is a breakfast shed. only we were just outside the season. but we get breakfast from the owner, which we could pick up at the supermarket in Herand. You can make beautiful walks here and Folgefonna National Park is close by. in Herand you have a port and a supermakt. and there is a restaurant. I can therefore highly recommend this accommodation and certainly for the price. We loved it just do it guys !

Apartment Krohnegården ***

Bergen - Norway

from 9 Sep - 11 Sep 2018


What a wonderfully quiet place nearby, in Bergen. Wonderful apartment with everything available. 3 bedrooms we had with 2 bathrooms. small sitting room with kitchen. Beds slept wonderfully and it was clean and tidy. towels and bed linen are provided. Owner can only occasionally drop by to get something out of the storage closet. supermarket close by. And bus stop. Pay attention with the car you pay toll every time you go to Bergen Center. about 3 euros but that is in more places in Bergen. Go see everything in Bergen especially the fish market and go up with the cable cars to enjoy the view. And go eat at Restaurant Friday's. I can therefore highly recommend this accommodation and certainly for the price.

Nr 113   

Oldevatn Camping  ****

Oldevatn - Norway

from 7 Sep - 9 Sep 2018


I can really recommend this place. on a campsite in the middle of nature. A friendly owner who is always ready for you. Cottages are nicely decorated and everything is there. with 2 bedrooms of which a little too tight. but beds are good. kitchen available. But no TV because you do not need it in such a nice place. There is no shower, but in the shower building you can take a good shower for 10NOK for 10min. in the evening they light the barbeqeu's at the waterfront near the lake so everyone who wants to bake meat can do that. Tip .. go and explore everything in the neighborhood, And go to all glaciers. And especially go to Loen, with the Skylift up. here you can enjoy a beautiful view and have a bite to eat. (Skylift is pricey) But just do it! We Loved it.

Nr 112  

Atlanten Apartments ****

Kristiansund - Norway

from 5 Sep - 7 Sep 2018


I can really recommend this place. we were in one of the converted shipping containers. what you would not wait for because inside it looks great and everything is there. Beds very good. and everything clean and tidy. Kristiansund is a nice city. there is not much to do but if you do your best. Then you come to beautiful places. is the center is a shopping center where you have everything and many nice restaurants in the neighborhood. of course you stay here for one thing and that is the Allantic road that starts from here. highly recommended. especially if you stop at any place you can stop. just do it! We Loved it.

Nr 111  

Jostedal Camping ***

Jostedal - Norway

from 3 Sep - 5 Sep 2018


Jostedal is one of the beautiful places where I have been, and why is it really recommended. Especially if you are sitting in a house on this camp site. we were in one of the two large houses with everything present. well insulated for in the winter and even with wood storage. the river runs close by but here you do not suffer from during the night.3 bedrooms with good beds. if there is anything just ask Astrid and everything will be fine. Tip.. Have a nice dinner at Hotel Jostedal ! And there is plenty to do in the neighborhood. We loved it .. just do it guys.

Color Magic cruise Kiel to Oslo ***

Kiel - Germany and Oslo - Norway

from 2 Sep - 3 Sep 2018


Second time ! but then on the color Fantasy from Oslo to Kiel. it was great on this ship again. delicious breakfast and very extensive. It can be a bit crowded, if you do not like it, you can also have breakfast in the Oceanic à la Carte Restaurant here it is a lot quieter. the cabins are well equipped and the beds sleep wonderfully. A must to do once.

Nr 109  

IntercityHotel Kiel ***

Kiel - Germany

from 1 Sep - 2 Sep 2018


Great hotel, and parking no problem for 6 euros you stand 24 hours on the roof at the hotel. there you also have a door to the elevator to get to the Reception. Please note that you do not press the bell too often! they do not like this very much. not too big rooms beds sleep delicious and the breakfast is extensive and very tasty. And good coffee.

Nr 108  

Hotel de la Source****

from 27 Dec - 28 dec 2017 

Spa-Francorchamps - België


Very good hotel, good food so you do not have to search for a Restaurant. And right next to the Circuit Spa-Francorchamps. nice staff. Keep an eye on. if you are by car and it is snowing. for the hotel. runs upwards! then it can sometimes become a challenge to get away. but the Hotel starts early to clear away the snow. there is a parking garage but that is even further down the hill. but there is no snow on your car.
We loved it And definitely recommend this accommodation

Nr 107 

M/S Color Fantasy **** 

from Oslo to Kiel by boat

From 19 sep - 20 sep 2017


What a beautiful boat. because we had a rental car we could only pass the car's license plate. and decided to do that one day in advance at the cruise terminal itself. We only found out later that they had given us an upgrade to the Luxe four star room including minibar at ten high. super cool of course. so it pays to visit the terninal !

We really recommended to go to Oslo by boat. or vice versa. we loved it. Thanks Colorline for this wonderful experience.

Nr 106

Voksenåsen **** 

Oslo - Norway

From 17 sep - 19 sep 2017


Really recommended to go to this Hotel in Oslo. very friendly staff, everything was clean and tidy, very good food, very nice view, and still close to everything. We loved it.

Nr 105 

Grande Hytteutleige

Camping ***

Geiranger - Norway

From 15 sep - 17 sep 2017


Grande Hytteutleige og Camping is located down by the Geirangerfjord two kilometers from the centre of Geiranger. Most people would say it is the best location in Geiranger. Sun from 10.00 and until the evening. 

for us this was certainly true. Geiranger is fun to go, but can be very busy. if you are looking for good you will certainly find nice and quiet spots. now we go for the second time in September so it is already much quieter.

We loved it And definitely recommend this accommodation !


Nr 104 

Tråsåvika Camping ***

Viggja - Norway

From 14 Sep - 15 Sep 2017


very nice location. unfortunately we were only 1 night here. beautiful newly furnished cottages. supermarket 15 minutes drive.
We love it And definitely recommend this accommodation.

Nr 103 

Wild Camp ****

Gäddede - sweden

From 13 sep -14 sep 2017


Very nice place ! For a night. there is a small roof, and a small toilet, and a fire place, if you really want to go back to the basics and nature. Really recommended! just loved it

Nr 102 

Lapland Lodge ****

Arvidsjaur - Sweden website

From 12 sep - 13 sep 2017

Nr 101 

Aurora Mountain Lodge ****


From 11 sep - 12 sep 2017

There is a lot to do here in the winter. but in the summer it is also very nice there is even a sauna on a lake! just ask. Food is very good here. and the people are very nice and always ready for you.
