Photographer's Note

Fugelvåg Camping located on a peninsula between a river and the Ålvundfjord is a tranquil place to pitch your tent and enjoy the wonderful norwegian summer evenings. Due to its location, right where a freezing, blueish river is flowing into the fjord, the place is very popular with fishers, men and animals, the later making a lot of noise for the better part of the never-really-dark nights. So on a second thought, the lots right on the shoreline might not be ideal for light sleepers, as we've found out the hard way :-)

However it is a great basecamp to explore the natural wonders of the Sunndal municipality. It's main attractions, the hicking paradise Innerdalen valley and the gorges and waterfalls of Åmotan are missing in many (most?) travel guides, an advantage for the ones prefering less traveled paths.

Speaking of less traveled paths, adventuresome drivers should try the Aursjøvegen, a switchback road leading up to and down from 900m in a hair-raising manner. Be warned, it's over 50km gravel road and not really for the faint hearted or caravan lover. (How about a 1-track tunnel, without lights making a 180° turn?)

This image shows the view across Ålvundfjorden directly out of our tent around 9 in the evening.
