Otternes Bygdetun reviews
The complex of buildings used for farming in 1800s is now free to wander around but all houses are closed and we hope that they will not go in despair and disappearance. Amazing views over the fjord..... more »
Nice place with potential. But there is no activity there. It would be nice if there were viking activities and guides there. Nice views, but no more than that. more »
If the weather is good the view is spectacular! It's well worth the trip if you are into fjords. I'm not that interested in traditional Norwegian farmhouses, i went for the view and i wasn't disappointed.
Best views of this fjord.
