To start planning your vacation to 29/2 Aurland
Tone & Bjorn’s passion and love for the area will soon rub off on you as you discover this hidden gem. As your hosts, this pair will throw open their doors to you as if you were a long lost relation. The couple exude charm and enthusiasm and Bjorn's talent for building coupled with Tone's eye for décor mean 29/2 Aurland looks likes it's straight from the pages of an interior design magazine.
The standalone house with nine bedrooms is beyond homely with a log burning stove, amazing photos from bygone days, cosy woollen throws and deep armchairs. Next door the newest building, where meals are served, boasts a sitting area with a glorious wall of windows as atmospheric by day as it is by night. Here the rooms are like suites, spacious and airy with sublime bathrooms.
The old smoke house, where Bjorn's father used to cure the wild salmon is like stepping back in time. Meals can be served here too, sitting on the wooden benches covered with incredibly soft mountain sheepskins by another log fire, listening to tales of past guests, the old way of life and slowly sinking into the relaxed pace synonymous with rural Norway.
Tone is a keen hiker and she will devise routes to suit your preferences, be it a gentle stroll through stunning scenery or a more demanding hike to a perfect viewpoint. Laavu tents can even be pitched for lunch to be served if an al fresco picnic just doesn’t cut the mustard.
This is a true Norwegian home from home despite the boutique hotel décor and perfect for those wanting to venture off the beaten path. Meals are inspired by what's in season and the focus here is all about relaxing with a great book and glass of wine by the fire in the evening after a day of exploring your enchanting environs.

When to go
The best time to go is from 1st May - 1st October when it is 29/2 Aurland's main season. If you would like to go as a group and would like to travel at other times of the year it is possible to arrange this. May is a beautiful time to go with the snow capped mountains, raging waterfalls and blossom on the trees, with little lambs frolicking in the fields. For those that would like to have a bit of a calmer trip outside the peak season, September is also great. As the leaves are changing and the weather is still warm, it makes for a fantastic time of year to visit.
The Flaam Railway is open all year round; voted one of the most beautiful train journeys in the world. Also trips to the local fjords is available throughout the year.
