This is a delightful, small, rural site which slopes down to Malmefjorden, a sheltered arm of Fraenfjorden. Bjølstad has space for just 45 touring units on grassy, fairly level terraces either side of the tarmac central access road. A delight for children is a large, old, masted boat which provides hours of fun. At the foot of the site is a waterside barbecue area with a large, communal, turfed roof area, a shallow, sandy, paddling area for children and a jetty. Both rowing and motorboats (with life jackets) can be hired and one can swim or fish in the fjord.
Surrounded by the Eide and Fraena nature reserves, Bjølstad is also an ideal base for visiting the Molde International Jazz Festival (annually mid-July), or the famous Varden viewpoint with its magnificent views over this ‘Town of Roses’, the fjord and mountain peaks, both only 15 minutes drive from the site. Further afield, the small town of Bud is famous for its WW2 German coastal fortress, or one can drive the fantastic and scenic Atlantic Highway as it threads its way across the many islands and bridges to the west of Kristiansund.
