The main attraction of the village is a large wooden hotel of the 19th century. Despite the tiny size of the village, Fjorland attracts fans of climbing on rocks and glaciers, and the hotel has become a popular meeting place for lovers of mountain adventures. And just wanting to walk in silence along the berezhka and breathe the purest air, I think, there are also a lot of people. I'd love to spend a week here...if it were possible.
