Pass through the tunnel to Øvre Eidfjord and you can't miss this handsome guesthouse, an old-fashioned, whitewashed, gabled beauty with a covered porch out front. Inside, the eight double rooms are simple but proper, stocked with vintage furniture; all share a corridor bathroom. There are also a few basic camping-style huts in the front garden, and a super pancake cafe.
Breakfasts are good (the secret's in the homemade bread) and the cafe has around 20 varieties of fantastic, filling, sweet and salty Dutch pancakes, with toppings that range from mountain trout to Hardanger apple compote – kids will absolutely love it. It also has a good range of dried meals for hikers heading out into the wilds.
Note that rates creep up by 200kr or so in summer.
Overlooking the lake of Eidfjordvatnet, this traditional timber-clad property is just 12 km from the spectacular Vøringsfossen waterfall.
