Trandal is a small village by the Hjørundfjord, surrounded by the beautifull mountains called the Alps of Sunnmøre. Here we offer you a spacious and cosy apartment for up to 5 people in calm and beautiful sorrundings. The fjord offers good fishing opportunities and Trandal is an excellent starting point for mountain hikes of 1000 + meters. You can rent our boat to go sightseeing, exploring or fishing.
“Jorn and Sarah’s home in Trandal is very special. They are both beyond thoughtful and helpful. Jorn is a great “ tour guide” to life in Trandal. Their boat was a blast and a great way to take a hike in Sæbø. The apartment is very comfortable and spacious with all the amenities. The views from the windows are spectacular. It’s even powerful in bad weather, watching the clouds roll over the mountains. This is a special place which is very connected to life in a specific fjord. Its isolation is not for everyone. We loved it and it has created powerful memories.”
Welcome to the guest house on the farm with a short distance to the sea and nature. Here you can enjoy a rural setting with a short distance to the hiking trails for the mountains, relax on the terrace, fishing, or take a walk on Folkestadsetra with good swimming and barbecue possibilities. If you want a day trip to famous attractions, you can drive to Geiranger, Via Ferrata & Loen Skylift, Kannesteinen, Refviksanden, Krakenes Lighthouse, Hakallegarden or the Alps. The possibilities are many:)
“It’s the best BnB experience we had in Norway throughout our 1-week stay. The wooden house is sparkling clean and lovely decorated. It’s cozy but well equipped. The view of the house and balcony overlooks Volda across the sea, which is really beautiful and serene at night. All the kitchenwares are very clean, cooking basics are also supplied. It’s the first time we really feel like home throughout our trip. What made our experience so positive is not only because of this charming little house, but how welcoming and friendly Stig is. Stig is the warmest Norwegian we’ve met. We greatly appreciate his thoughtfulness (warming the house before our arrival) and the time he spent on chit chatting with us, showing us around his farm, and also letting us try the local Trout fishes! He has also made a tour guide book for the guests. We were surprised to find out how much could be done at this neighbourhood, and regretted for not being able to spend a few nights more.”
Our place is beautifully located by the fjord, and between mountains. The bus stop is only 100 m from our house with busses running every hour in both directions. It takes about one hour to get to Ålesund which is a must-see-town. Other sightseeing-possibilities close to us are Geiranger ( 2,5 hours away with a car), Briksdalsbreen (1,5 hours with a car), birdwatching at Runde (1 hour with a car), and the Atlantic road (3,5 hour with a car).The nearest grocery store is 3 km away.
