Where to stay
There are two hostels in Bjørke and both are at the very centre of the village (near the fjord) and a short walking distance from the evening concerts and other activities. One of the hostels provides camping options as well (for tents and caravans). There is also a family-friendly camping option (tents only – with a babysitting option during the evening concerts!) at the old farm Bakketunet. Those who do not have their own car should definitely try to stay in one of these hostels or at the farm. For those of you who have got cars and could live 15 mins drive away we will also list some other alternatives (hotel, self-service apartments, camping, cabins).
We will also be updating some info about some beautiful places to stay along the Hjørundfjord if you’ve got your own boat…
