    Every Saturday at noon there is a free concert in the church. The musical program varies - usually local musicians, sometimes students, sometimes guests. Concerts last about a half of an hour.

    Landscape is the best sit-down non-pub restaurant in Volda. It is located on the second floor of the brick 'brygge' building across the street from the small boat harbor. Entrance is through the back of the building.

    The restaurant serves good Chinese food and good 'European' dishes as well. Wine comes without the enormous mark-up usual in restaurants. Service is excellent and you have a fabulous view of the fjord and the ferry when it comes in. The restaurant is good for children as well and accomodates large groups easily.

    There are several bars in Volda. Most nightlife goes on in Rokken, the student bar. Concerts are scheduled here and non-students are very welcome.

    For a quieter drink, head to Det Grøne Treet on the waterfront.

    Dress Code: Extremely casual

    Busses come twice a day from Oslo and from Bergen to Volda. The bus stops right in the center of town near the hotel.

    Busses run from Ålesund every hour during the day. It takes approximately 1 hour 45 minutes from Ålesund to Volda.

    Wideroe flies into an airport between Volda and Ørsta. There are semi-direct flights from Oslo and Bergen (the plane might land in between to let on or off passengers but you stay seated). An inexpensive cab ride will take you into either of the two towns. There are busses, but you have to walk out to the road to wait at the stop. Busses come about once every hour.

    Walking up Rotsethjørnet is a popular long day hike. Stay on the path and you are fine. People have died trying to find a short way down, off the path.

    A newly improved path featuring integrated ropes makes climbing Rotsethornet a good choice for a sporty family on a clear day. Start early and enjoy the day.

    Equipment: No special climbing equipment is needed but bring enough food and drink for the daylong (if with children) trip up and down.

    Favorite thing: A lot of life in Volda is centered around the college. Høgskulen i Volda houses many excellent academic programs. The cafeteria (open during the school year) is a good place for a reasonable bite to eat. Stop by!
