fantastic nature

in the summertime you can even get very lucky and get sun or a terrible fog...when the sun is up its a uncredeble nature it is so unthouch and beautiful...go on boat trips or trekking there are a lot of mountains here to climb...or just walk...

    31Dec09 We strongly DO NOT RECOMMEND. We had a meal for NOK630 and when the bill came we were charged 630+609 for wine. We had not been told the wine was not included & we hadn?t drunken half of the wine. The waiters were rude, unapologetic & made us pay.
