Welcome to our hostel

HI Borlaug is located by the idyllic valley - Lærdalen, which offers great scenery and cultural experiences for its guests. The hostel does not serve breakfast, but guests have the opportunity to use our well-equipped guest kitchen. We recommend bringing food in advance - as it is far to the nearest supermarket. Check-out time is 11am, and our reception is only open between 6pm and 8pm.

The main attraction in the area is the Borgund Stave Church from approx. 1150 with altarpiece from approx. 1620 and pulpit from 1500. This is the best preserved stave church in Norway next to the Heddal church. You will also experience fantastic hiking trails, such as "Kongevegen over Filefjell" and Vindhellaveien. It is also popular with aure fishing in the Borgunsfjord and salmon fishing in the Lærdalselva river. Fishing licenses can be purchased at the hostel. The winter offer at Borlaug is based on the skiing terrain at Fillefjell and the resorts at Hemsedal.

Sorry to say, but lack of insulation of walls/floors contributed to a lousy sleep.

I stayed a week at the Borlaug Hostel. The surroundings are really beautiful although you really need a car to explore everything. The hostel is very nice. It is run by a very kind family who serve a delicious breakfast each morning. They sit in with the guests each morning and if you have any questions about your daytrips, public transportation, about anything actually, they try to help you as good good as possible. I don't think I have suggestions for improvement. I really enjoyed it
