Description from owner

Description

Steinboligen is located at Finse, a famous winter resort for mountain skiing and walking - 1.222 meters above sea level on the Bergen- Oslo railway. Only accessible by rail, foot or bike - no cars. These days it is also quite popular to go biking along the old Navvy road leading across the mountain and down to Flåm by the Sognefjord.Steinboligen is both the oldest and newest buliding at Finse, as the refurbishment in 2009 only kept the first floor of meter thick stone walls. Large panoramic windows have been cut out in the south facade with the fantastic view across the Finse lake towards the Hardangerjokul glacier. The apartment is completely new and modern with all facilities and equipment.

The Western Norway region

In 2009, the renowned National Geographic Traveler Magazine voted the Fjords of Western Norway the best preserved attraction on UNESCO's World Heritage List. That is quite an honour – but there are many others! Lonely Planet for instance, put Fjord Norway on the list over 8 voyages of a lifetime.

Fascinating fjords and waterfalls
The Geirangerfjord attracts travellers to its pristine beauty, Nærøyfjord is the narrowest in the world, while the Sognefjord stretches halfway to the Swedish border. Hardangerfjord is famous for its flowering fruit trees, and the Lysefjord winds past the sheer 600-metre Pulpit Rock.

What unfolds as you travel Fjord Norway is a fantastic story of water, with many chapters.
The fjords you see were carved by a massive sheet of ice up to three kilometres thick that covered Northern Europe in a succession of ice ages. As you peer up at the towering mountains surrounding the Nærøyfjord, the narrowest fjord in the world, you can appreciate the immense power of those forces of nature. As you cross the fjord, you travel in the wake of fishing boats and merchant ships. Most of the landscape has changed little since Viking longboats set sail for distant shores. From the air, you see how unspoiled Fjord Norway really is. Most is still wilderness.

Waterfalls cascade down the dark mountainsides, roaring as you approach. Did you know that many of the highest waterfalls in the world are in Norway? Whether you are inland or travelling along the fjord, chances are there is a dramatic waterfall nearby. Even in the midst of summer you may see snow-capped mountains. In fact, there are
places where you can ski on the warmest summer day. Or perhaps you want to join a guide and walk the glacier? One more amazing thing to write home about!
Fjord cities

Along the sheltered fjords you see farms and villages built long ago where the soil was most fertile. Up and down the coast there are cities worth exploring – Ålesund with its amazing Art Nouveau architecture, and Bergen with its seven mountains and Hanseatic Wharf, Bryggen, yet another World Heritage attraction. So is Urnes stave church, which has weathered 850 years, on a headland overlooking the Lustrafjord, far from any town.

Do not plan too many details ahead. Half the fun of travelling Fjord Norway is allowing yourself to be seduced – a few extra days in a magic place, a detour that brings you to hidden treasures. By the way, public transportation, even to remote areas, is excellent in Fjord Norway. Explore! And you will find that fulfilment lies in the journey.
