Property description

In the middle of a magnificent fjord landscape, located on “The Queens Route” from Ålesund to Geiranger, Urke is a perfect destination for an extraordinary and peaceful holiday.This region has, for more than a century, been an inspiration to tourists and artist. The site is extraordinarily beautiful with the majestic mountains circling the fjord, constantly changing in character with changes in light and weather. For the active there are mountains to climb, and an abundance of fish in the fjord.
Our holiday house, (buldt 2004), easily houses 7 - 10 persons. Its architecture is based on a traditional building method for wooden houses on the western coast, with a green, grassy sod roof. The house has two floors and a fine thatched terrace facing south west. It offers all the comforts of modern accommodation. A 15 feet boat with outboard engine is available and included in the rental.
Hiking through the valleys below snow covered peaks, with numerous rivers, waterfalls and small lakes is a wonderful holiday experience.The cottage is an excellent starting point for mountain hikes of all kinds and all degrees of difficulty. Nearby peaks well known among mountaineers are Slogen, Smørskredtindane and Jakta (all around 1600m). But also lower mountains like Saksa (990m) offer splendid views.
The renown classic wooden hotel Hotel Union Øye is situated only 5 km from the cottage. The hotel is more than 100 years old and is an attraction by itself. The nearby Norangsdalen is an extremely narrow valley with a row of small lakes. One of the lakes was formed as late as 1908, as rocks falling from the mountainside formed a dam. Remains of the flooded houses are still visible from the road.
The cottage is an excellent starting point for day trips by car in the district. You may visit places like Briksdalsbreen, Stryn Sommerskisenter, Geiranger and Trollstigen, as well as the bird sancturay at Runde or the art nouvau city of Ålesund .
If you have an interest in fishing, this is a perfect spot. There is an abundance of fish in the fjord. The fjord is well protected from all winds, by mountains on all sides. Opportunities for river fishing in Bondalselva and Norangselva are also available. The freezer in the cottage will allow you to take care of your catch.
