Welcome to our hostel

Borlaug´s most famous attraction is Borgund Stave Church (1150), one of the best preserved stave churches in Norway. There are also excellent opportunities for walking and hiking in the area, e.g. on the old road Vindhellaveien (opened in 1793), many parts of which have a beautiful view. There are two nearby ski resorts; Filefjell 25 km and Hemsedal 45 km from the hostel. A permit for fishing trout can be bought from the hostel.

I stayed a week at the Borlaug Hostel. The surroundings are really beautiful although you really need a car to explore everything. The hostel is very nice. It is run by a very kind family who serve a delicious breakfast each morning. They sit in with the guests each morning and if you have any questions about your daytrips, public transportation, about anything actually, they try to help you as good good as possible. I don't think I have suggestions for improvement. I really enjoyed it

the location of the Hostel is very strategic for visiting the area most visited places, it is very quiet although close to the river and the main road. the place has plenty of parking space and the village of Aurland offer many otion of activities in the area.
