Alan Rogers Review

For those travelling north on the E39 beyond Bergen, there are surprisingly few attractive sites until one reaches the southern shore of the mighty Sognefjord, close to the ferry crossing from Oppedal to Lavik. A left turn towards Brekke takes you to the family run Botnen Camping overlooking the fjord and with wonderful views to distant mountains. There are 70 mostly level touring pitches, all with 10A electricity, from where you may see passing cruise ships and porpoises searching for mackerel. It has its own jetty and harbour, with motorboats and canoes for hire. New, fully serviced pitches and a modern sanitary unit will be ready for the 2014 season.

The motorboats for hire and the shoreline itself provide opportunities for fishermen. The campsite has a collection of photos of past noteable catches and has a fish cleaning station and freezers that campers can freely use. The reception building has a small shop selling fishing tackle and basics supplies, and thoughtfully provides a timetable for the passage of cruise ships heading for Flåm. The access road is single track in parts, but with regular passing places. At Brekke is a well known tourist landmark, the remarkable Breekstranda Fjord Hotel, a traditional turf-roofed complex which tourist coaches are unable to resist.
