HI Borlaug is located by the idyllic Lærdalen, which offers great nature and cultural experiences for its guests. The hostel does not serve breakfast, but guests have the opportunity to use our well-equipped guest kitchen
Borlaug´s most famous attraction is Borgund Stave Church (1150), one of the best preserved stave churches in Norway.
There are also excellent opportunities for walking and hiking in the area, e.g. on the old King's Road, many parts of which have a beautiful view.
