Where to stay
Disclaimer: The info below is for 2020, so the prices may vary in 2021, we will update this section soon!
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/campervans). There is also a family-friendly camping option at the old farm Bakketunet, for tents mainly – but get in touch with them if you are thinking of bringing a caravan or campervan. 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).
It’s recommended to arrive on the Friday so you can join the welcome party on the Friday! We organise transport Friday and Monday (not on other days).
