Rooms for rent in beautiful surroundings
between mountains and lake!
Close to Bergen City
If you like a quiet place out of the main tourist routes, this is the place for YOU!
Spend a few days on a farm with animals and great nature. Solneset Farm is just outside Bergen (25 minutes with car), but at the same time in the middle of nature surrounded between beautiful mountains, river and a great lake.
Please look into our photo galleries at the bottom of this site - Farm Photos!
It's plenty of excellent hiking and biking possibilities in the area, both summer and winter.
You are welcome to visit and pet our animals on the farm as sheep, rabbits, ducks and horses, as well as pick your own eggs from our chicken. In season you can pick our delicious strawberries and help harvest vegetables.
This is a farm in full operation with animals, working people, machines and other guests. Our guests must, therefore, be able to be close to animals and other conditions that are natural on a farm.
The area around the farm:
The farm is in the beautiful quiet cosy village of Unneland. It's rural with farms and small private houses. A magnificent view of Haukelandsvannet (lake) and Ulriken (mountains). Close to a nature reserve with over 100 different types of birds is registered.
You will find the best mountain hiking tours in the Bergen area just behind the farm. We are located at the foot of the highest mountain in the Bergen area - Gullfjellet 987 (Gold Mountain). We would be happy to provide you with maps and special hiking advice.
It's also possible to walk from the farm to Bergen over mountain Ulriken (ca. 2,5 hours) where you will have a magnificent view of Bergen City and the North Sea. Then you will have a nice mountain hike and a city tour in one. It’s convenient to take use the train back to the farm.
The best way going to Bergen Centre, are by train from Arna Station. 10 minutes' drive + 8 minutes by train. The train goes all day with a ca. 20 - 30 minutes frequency (please download the app VY. for purchasing train tickets).
We also have an 8-seter minibus for transferring our guest to train station, airport, start point for hiking etc.
With a regular car its only 25 minutes to Bergen. From the airport (BGO) it's about a 30 minutes drive and ca. 45 minutes by public transport (light train and bus no 90 from Nesttun Terminal).
The rooms and facility:
Our rooms are small but cosy with an amazing lake view. The rooms are located in the barn close to animals. Smell and sound from animals can occur (not in rooms). This is all a part of our Farm Stay concept. So, if you are looking for a regular city hotel, this will probably not be the right place for you.
Downstairs on the 1st floor, we have a with high-quality toilets, showers, laundry room and sauna. Everything here is tiled with underfloor heating and good ventilation. There is also a toilet and shower just outside the room, but not directly adjacent to the room.
You will find our nice and cosy well-equipped large kitchen in the other barn on the 2nd floor. There are also sofas, relaxation areas, WIFI and a terrace with a stunning views.
Down by the lake, we have a small beach, a rustic cabin, barbecue equipment, boat, canoe and kayak, with fishing and swimming opportunities. Everything at your disposal included in the room price.
If you have any special requests, please let us know about them and we will try to arrange things to your desire.
Here on Solneset Farm, you will find silence, peace of mind and fresh air close to Bergen.
This is a perfect place if you want to visit Bergen, combined with a stay in a quiet beautiful place.
