Aside from the most unique form of transportation, the bus is also your accommodation on wheels! It will be your home away from home for the next 8 days. Fully equipped with a big lounge, kitchen, 9 comfy beds, heating, bathroom, and of course.. a fire pit!
Of course part of the fun is to be driving around in our ancient bus, transformed from an old public transportation bus into a comfortable hostel on the move. We’ll be on a roadtrip together to discover the beautiful Norway. Sitting upstairs you'll almost have a 360-degrees view!
You’ll have your own bed, with curtains to provide some privacy and your own little reading light. Upstairs you’ll also find the lounge with a view, while downstairs is the living area, with kitchen, bathroom and dining area.
Both areas have what we call in Dutch ‘ARKO’ (Alle Ramen Kunnen Open’) and a heating system for the colder nights.
