Cabins and holiday houses

The coast and fjord region of Sunnmøre is the perfect place if you want to spend your holiday in a well-equipped cabin or rorbu. A small motorboat is often included in the rent, and local fishermen will be happy to give you some good advice about fishing spots nearby.

Chill in a cabin beside the Austefjord or Hjørundfjord, on the islands of Runde or Haramsøya, or stay in a comfortable fishermen's cabin in Alnes.
