Malmefjorden

On the first leg of our trip, we stayed at Bjølstad camping site which is situated by the sea. Bjølstad camping is owned and operated by a couple who has had the camping site in their family for approximately 70 years. We didn't arrive at the campsite until 10.30 in the evening, and honestly we all thought that we had driven to the middle of nowhere, which we had. Once we had unpacked and set up our tent, we walked down to the pier. It was almost midnight and we were blown away by the magnificent view of the fjord.
