Bjørnefjorden Gjestetun is a small hotel with a relaxed atmosphere, differing drastically from larger, high-pulse and often impersonal hotels.  The beautiful surroundings are free for all to enjoy and our staff are available to advice our guests on various and wonderful activities.


Wander along the coastline promenade to the beautiful gardens at Moldegaard or stop at one of the beaches for a refreshing swim.  At Lysøen, where the summer villa of the same name is located, there is a network of paths totaling 14 kilometers for you to explore.  Norway is a nation of walkers and the local area has boundless options.

Jogging Routes

There are many opportunities to stretch your legs in the near vicinity.  Let our staff know your level of exercise and we will do our best to point you in the right direction.  A popular route for adept athletes follows a path up the nearest mountain, Borgafjellet, where you are expected to leave your name in the summit book.  There are plenty of routes in the area for any level.


Our nearest neighbor is Bjørnefjorden Golf Club that offers a 9 hole course, a driving range and a putting green. In the clubhouse itself there is a top of the line golf simulator (a popular choice in the winter season.)

The most popular areas for visitors in the local area are Lysøen (Ole Bull’s summer villa), Galleri Oz and Holdhus Church.  The local village of Osøyro has a new civic center, Oseana, that offers a weekly cinema, gallery and several concerts.  Bergen is a short trip from the hotel and offers a wide variety of museums and other cultural activities.

Other Activities

If you would like to go horse-riding, take a boat trip on the fjord or go skiing we have a variety of options.  Just ask us before your stay and we will get your activity organized on your behalf.
