Alan Rogers Review

Kjørnes Camping is idyllically situated on the Sognefjord, three kilometres from the centre of Sogndal. It occupies a long open meadow which is terraced down to the waterside. The site has 100 pitches for camping units (all with electricity), 14 cabins and two apartments for rent. Located at the very centre of the ‘fjord kingdom’ by the main no. 5 road, this site is the ideal base from which to explore the Sognefjord. You are within a short drive (maximum one hour) from all the major attractions including the Jostedal glacier, the Nærøyfjord, the Flåm Railway, the Urnes Stave Church and Sognefjellet. This site is ideal for those who enjoy peace and quiet, renowned local walks, lovely scenery or a spot of fishing with a bonus of evening sunshine. Local activities include organised guided walks on glaciers, access to several stave churches and a goat farm in the mountains.

A pleasant drive takes you to Solvorn and a car park in the village from where a ferry crosses the fjord to Urnes Stave Church. From Skjolden at the head of the fjord, the Sognefjelletvegen (RV55, a national tourist road) climbs to Jotunheimen National Park and on to Lom, passing the two highest mountains (over 2,400 m) in Norway.


A modern, high quality sanitary building has washbasins in cubicles and a feature children’s room. Baby room. Facilities for disabled visitors. Kitchen with cooking facilities, dishwasher, a dining area overlooking the fjord and laundry facilities. Motorhome services. Small shop (10/6-20/8). Satellite TV, WiFi over site (free). Cabins and apartments for hire.
