Alan Rogers Review

For those seeking peace and quiet on the western shore of Sørfjord is Eikhamrane Camping. Arranged on a well landscaped and partly terraced field which slopes to a pebbly lakeside beach and quay. Formerly part of an orchard, which still extends on both sides of the site, there is room for 40 units on unmarked, well kept grass, 20 with electricity hook-ups (10A). There are attractive trees and good gravel roads, with areas of gravel hardstanding for poor weather. Many pitches overlook the fjord where there are also picnic benches, which afford the occasional glimpse of porpoises searching for mackerel.

Sørfjord, well known for its fruit growing, has long been on a popular route for travellers across Norway via Utne (where Norway’s oldest hotel is a tourist attraction in its own right) and a short ferry crossing across Hardangerfjord. Travellers are also attracted by the Folgefonna ice cap, the most accessible of the great glaciers, which lies at the head of Sørfjord. Reception is open 20.00-22.00, outside these hours choose your pitch and pay later, or use the ‘honesty box’.

Facilities

Two small timber toilet blocks, one for toilets with external access, the other for washbasins (open) and cubicles with washbasin and shower (on payment). Both are simple but very well kept. Small kitchen (hot water on payment) and laundry with sinks. Some supplies kept at reception office in the old farmhouse, home of the owner (bread and milk to order). Play area. Small quay with slipway. Motorboat hire. Watersports (sailing, canoeing and rowing), and fishing in fjord.
