While on our family vacation through Scandinavia this summer we stayed at a magnificent bed and breakfast in the heart of the Norwegian Fjords. 29|2 Aurland is nestled within the Aurland valley.
We starting our Fjord journey in Oslo and rode a high-speed train to Flam. We boarded the Flam Railway and traversed down toward the fjords on one of the most magical train rides on earth. The train ends at Myrdal and from there 29|2 Aurland is a short fifteen-minute drive by taxi or hired car.
The staff at 29|2 Aurland prepared breakfast and dinner and also arranged guided hikes, fly fishing, and bike rentals.
