Heimly pensjonat AS Flåm Reviews
On Norway's 'Nutshell' route Jun 23, 1998
I had been to Norway once and loved it. On the second trip I decided to try the 'Norway in a Nutshell' route - but to make my own arrangements. It's quite simple; I picked on Heimly because it was the cheapest place I could find on the route! I booked for three nights with half board.
You need not spend long on the Internet to find it is still far cheaper than either of two hotels in Flåm. For the life of me I cannot think what the can provide that justifies the extra.
The Heimly Pensjonat is located on the Auerladfjord, one of the arms of the Sognefjord farthest from the open sea. If you look at the picture on their website, http://www.http://www.heimly.no/heimly.no/, the fjord is immediately behind you.
Everything was terrific. The view was spectacular: the food was very good, the en-suite bedroom was comfortable; the owners were exceptionally helpful. The man drives on the famous mountain railway - which I shall review separately soon - and was mortified that he did not recognise me and let me sit with him, when I took the train from the village to the coast in pouring rain. He GAVE me a couple of maps - by no means cheap in Norway - and took me the few hundred yards in his car on my final trip to the station.

Part of the list Scandinavia - a favourite summer destination.
