/ setesdal valley norway
Have a grand time if you go
+1 for the recommendation of the OAC guidebook ( http://www.oxfordalpineclub.co.uk/setesdal-ice.html ) - it's very good.
For accommodation, the chalets (hytte in Norwegian) in the Brokke Hyttepark ( http://www.brokke.com/english ) are rather nice if you're in a group (they take 6-8 people). If there are fewer of you, the Bykle Hotell ( http://www.hovdenferiesenter.com/nb-no/bykle-hotell ) has self-catering apartments which are pretty comfy. There's a lot of accommodation up around Hovden, too, but that's quite a way north of the climbing: I'd stick to the Bykle-Valle-Brokke-Rysstad area.
