Eplet Hostel - Guest House & Apple juice Farm
Eplet Bed & Apple is a small & friendly guesthouse near the head of Sognefjord, Western Norway.
Trond Henrik (host): "After years of travelling, I settled in a small fruit farm at the innermost part of the fjords of Western Norway. This turned out to be a perfect spot to create a home for travellers from all over the world. So far we have had guests from 65 countries. My aim is to give you basic affordable Norwegian modern farm tourism with an easy-going family atmosphere where everybody can feel at home. At Eplet you will not find any luxury, but a lot of charm. It is a real place. People say that the atmosphere at Eplet is a unique mix of a small family run rural guesthouse and a modern hostel with travellers from all over, ambient music, wifi and exchange library. That is just what I like to hear."
Eplet Bed & Apple is located in the middle of a fruit orchard where we pick fruit and berries. In the basement of the hostel there is a working juice factory, and the products are sold to local cafes and restaurants.
In the garden there are hammocks for you to relax on for free while having the most awesome fjord view in Norway. There is a volleyball net and a nine hole croquet golf course. Down by the plum tree we have lamb that we feed every evening. In the garage there are up to 20 mountainbikes that you can borrow for free to go on the romantic road on the other side of the Lustrafjord. To visit the second highest waterfall in Norway and the oldest Unesco Urnes stave church. In the other direction you can go on a seal safari with kayak and explore the biggest glacier in mainland Europe.
