Vang is a small campsite about 900 m from Gudvangen in the Naeroydalen. The cabins are very nice and well-equipped, each of them different, with some original Norwegian decorations, verandas and grass growing on the roofs.The prices start at NOK 200 for a double room, 250 for a cabin for two.
Very friendly hosts and their son, always ready to offer advice and really interested in their guests. The campsite is situated in a mountain valley with great views of the area and very close to Gudvangen so you can leave your car there to take the boat trip on the fjord and then the Flamsbana.
We spent two nights there to enable us to go on the boat trip to Flam and to have a little rest after all the driving we had done already on our tour. If you are on a budget or just don't like wasting your money, that or the Vang Camping nearby are the places to stay if you are thinking of the cruise on Naeroyfjord and the ride on the Flamsbana. We even went to enquire about the prices at the Flam Camping - 450 NOK for a basic cabin for two seemed like a rip-off, on the two campsites in Gudvangen you can get the same for just 250 NOK. And both the campsites are very conveniently situated - just a short walk away from the port.
Gudvangen Camping is further from the road so quieter than Vang but not so well organised and looked after: the gravelled area is bumpy, some of the houses a little dilapidated with the paint peeling, but the cabins are spacious and the furniture adequate. They offer rooms as well as cabins but all share the same toilets and showers. The owners of the campsite are nice but I preferred the girl, who speaks perfect English. They live in the house next door but ringing for them from the reception often brings no results. We saw at least two German couples give up and go away. Just be patient and someone will turn up.
Within walking distance of the port. Much cheaper than any accommodations at Flam. The river running at the foot of the mountains and the fjord both offer great opportunities for fishing - some of the Norwegians who seemed to be frequent visitors to the campsite were keen anglers.
