You can spend the night at a lighthouse, historic hotel, or perhaps you want to stay in a tent? All along the Nordsjøvegen you will find lovely small hotels, bed & breakfasts, cabin rentals and campsites, always beautifully located in scenic surroundings, or in a city center surrounded by characteristic architecture. We recommend that you book accommodation well in advance.
The culinary adventures are part of the whole experience. There are good restaurants with local delicacies and internationally inspired menus. Or you can choose the local variety; buy fresh prawns, loaf and mayonnaise and find a reef or a bench and look out to sea while you enjoy your meal.
Even the small towns - and perhaps especially them - have pleasant cafes and restaurants, and along the way the eateries will surprise you with something completely new.
