Volsdalen Camping: Communication - mission impossible

It is extremely hard to contact the Volsdalen Camping in Ålesund. I searched Volsdalen in the company register and it appears they do not have functioning web pages. That info might be dated, but an attempt at googling them did not work well either. Calling Volsdalen gives you an automatic reply in Norwegian with no answer option. Try via the www.visitalesund.com pages:
Turistinformasjonen i Ålesund (Tourism info of Ålesund)
Address: Skateflukaia, 6002 Ålesund
Telephone: +47 70 15 76 00 Telefax: +47 70 15 76 01
E-mail: info@visitalesund.com

I suggest to call the tourist info service if there is no resppnse from Volsdalen Camping, if they are open or what's the deal. Normally you get good service at these municipality-hosted tourism info places and they will understand English as they handle a lot of foreign visitors.

Brosundet Gjestehus: Authentic seaside accomodation

No, we didn't stay here, but looking at their website after taking this picture, I imagine this must be a nice
and reasonably priced place to stay. The guest house is beautifully positioned at the seaside and it just can't be more central than this.

A picturesque traditional building from 1906, formerly playing a great role in the fishery tradition.

Prinsen Strandcamping AS: Close to Alesund and by a fjord

A well-organised campsite with cabins and rooms. Situated by a fjord with a small beach and a bathing place, rather crowded at weekends and in summer as it seems to be very popular with the local people.

Convenient for visitors to Alesund. It's better to make a reservation or just move in and then go sightseeing. When we came back, all the cabins were occupied. An evening spent by the fjord was an extra bonus.

Volsdalen Camping: Camping in Ålesund

Just about the only camping option near Ålesund. Wild camping is a bit off on the Ålesund penninsula as it is quite crowded with houses. For camping like that you may need to search for areas near the aquarium or on one of the neighbouring islands tp Ålesund.
Volsdalen was ok, we rented a cabin for three persons. Plenty of room, standard was ok. The service was so-so, we discovered while trying to book and find the place.

Small beaches access.
Great views.
1,5 kms to Ålesund centre.

Molde`s newest attraction

When I were in Molde this summer , the hotel were still under construction and due to open in september. I were told that the name would be The Sail . Funny how this reminds me of Dubai.

Excellent rooms, tvs that do everything but feeding you (seriously - you can have a virtual tour by museums, squares and monuments, be waken up, listen to the radio, have instructions of how to use the fancy appareils in the bedroom... all that with a remote!)

Bronduset Gjestehus: Bronduset Gjestehus

Nok 950 for twin room with breakfast

Not only does it look majestic from the outside, (photo), but it is a listed building with its beams preserved. There is a self-catering room which is extremely well equipped, with chopsticks as well as knives and forks.
Breakfast is fine.

Den Norske Turistforening: The Norwegain Huts

Den Norske Turistforening (DNT) - The Norwegian Hutsystem offers huts ranging from rustic to comfortable lodges.

One of my favorite places is the area around the Patchell hut (see picture). The surrounding mountains will take your breath away... Slogen mountain is a must!

For more information goto
http://www.aast.no/info.htm or

There are three types of huts; the rustic, no food, no service are the least expensive; the self service huts with food; and the full service huts (typically larger with lots more room).

If you are planning on hiking in the backcountry, it's definitely a great way to go. You don't need to bring a tent and if the weather is good, all you need to bring is a linerbag and sheet for pillow (most huts have pillows and blankets) or a lightweight sleepingbag.

It is also a great way of meeting people.
