Berunes HI Hostel

The Berunes family invites travelers, wishing to slow down, to join them for a while. Berunes has one of the oldest and most renowned HI Hostels and a small Campsite. The popular Berunes Restaurant is open all summer and offers a good selection of drinks from nearby breweries and local seasonal ingredients from land and sea. 

Guests choose between authentic rooms with shared bathrooms, private rentals of the Old Family House, and few tiny, yet comfortable cottages, ideal for families.

Activities include hiking up the hills for a view over the fjord and experiencing the rich birdlife along the coast. Here you will find the perfect setting for nature to thrive, a few minute's walks to the beach and a backdrop of mountain ranges. 

Relax, enjoy the remote location and treat yourself to the renowned breakfast and regional cuisine at the Restaurant & Bar. Berunes can be your base when exploring the magical East.
