Director and owner

My name is Hessel Haker (1977) and I am the host at Flørli. I grew up in the Netherlands and after my studies of Forestry and Nature Conservation, I decided to do something practical in nature-based tourism! I moved to the Setesdal valley in southern Norway in 2007 and had a place called Brokkestøylen – a café, camping and activity centre now operated by the Brokke Skisenter.

In 2011 I moved to Ryfylke to work for the destination company and tourist information service Destination Ryfylke. This is how I got to know Flørli – first, as we did a conservation project here with volunteers from all over the world, volunteeringnorway.no. Then later, as the tenant of the historic hydropower factory and a number of adjacent apartments and service buildings. Since spring 2015, I have the pleasure to build up Flørli as a tourist destination.

Vi har hatt et fantastisk hyggelig opphold på Flørli. Koseligere og mer behagelig plass skal man lete lenge etter. En deilig lun atmosfære som gir en ettertraktet hvilepuls fra hverdagen. Nydelig mat servert av utrolig hyggelig og imøtekommende vertskap. PS! Åpningstider er «veiledende» 😀

What an amazing place, so peaceful, relaxing and we really enjoyed listening to and seeing the free range sheep! Dinner was amazing at the cafe. Hessel has put together a great menu. And the take away breakfast was a nice touch. Our room was perfect. We brought our car and left it at the pier and then walked up to the house. It's a walk, so we left our suitcases in the car and took only what we needed. I can't recommend this place enough.

Hessel is a great host. He's very friendly, helpful and flexible. The hostel is historical and rooms are charming. There are many walks to do and some water activities too. The environment is just magical! We enjoyed our stay a lot.

Overnattet i båt. Hadde herlig lunsj (fiskesuppe) i restauranten. Veldig hyggelig og behjelpelig betjening. Anbefaler turen "Flørlineset opp". Kort, intens tur med flott utsikt over Flørli.

An absolute gem. We came to Florli a bit randomly after hiking Preikstolen, hoping to get some rest from the crowds and could not find a better place : the camping area is perfect, you can leave your tent and go for hikes (multiple options beyond the famous stairs), and the café / restaurant area is super cosy to have diner or just a beer, and chit chat with the few other people who came to this heaven ! The owners have really made this place comfortable and authentic, we wish we could have stayed longer !!

Geweldige ervaring. Hessel en team maken een paradijs voor (beginnende) hikers. Schitterende omgeving, rustige plek. Dubbel en dwarse aanrader.

I’m not going to lie, I initially thought this would be a difficult hike, based on a couple of reviews. However, following a day at Pulpit Rock, this trail was so nice- a breeze. If you are in moderate shape, expect to make it up the stairs within and hour’s time and expect any easy descent for about the same time. The toughest part of this journey is scratching your head asking why people found it difficult. The record up and down sits at 1 hour and 6 minutes. A bit fast for me… you should take your time and enjoy the amazing views.

Very cute hostel houses in a historic and beautifully kept mini villiage. Hessel is very welcoming and dedicated to making sure you enjoy your stay. Two great hikes nearby. Make sure to book the ferry in advance if you want to bring a car (really only needed if you want do depart with another ferry than you came with).

Wat een bijzondere plek! Even goed informeren hoe de ferry s gaan! Zonde om het niet te doen,Hessel heeft er een heerlojk plekje met fijne overnachting mogelijkheden. Authentieke huizen, heel sfeervol. Hessel kookt ook nog eens heerlijk. Tip! Laat je auto achter bij een van de opstapplaatsen van de veerboten , en ga ondervinden wat Flörli te bieden heeft! Hessel wensen wij veel lieve bezoekers toe!!

Schitterende omgeving, idylisch dorpje. Wandeling was goed te doen met 9 en 7-jarige. Hostel was nostalgisch en eenvoudig; werkte prima voor ons.

Great! Hessel happens to be a good chef too!

Ein fantastischer Aufenthalt in Flørli. Um nach Flørli zu gelangen, sind wir von Vinddalen etwa 5-6 Stunden zur Unterkunft gewandert. Alternativ kann man auch mit der Fähre anreisen. Die Wanderung war anspruchsvoll, jedoch war es ein tolles Erlebnis mit viel beeindruckender Natur. An der Unterkunft angekommen, wurden wir von einer Mitarbeiterin von Hessel sehr freundlich eingecheckt und uns wurde unser Haus und unser Zimmer zugewiesen. Die Zimmer und die Küche waren in einem hervorragenden Zustand, das Gemeinschaftsbad immer sehr sauber. Wir können diese Unterkunft ausdrücklich empfehlen!

Fantastisk smukt sted og Hessen er en meget venlig og hjælpsom vært.

Skønt ophold, lige som forventet. Hvis vejret er godt kan en kanotur på fjorden anbefales.

Hessel is very nice and the environment is unique. We were lucky to stay in the old hotel and alone this day. This was a out of time moment for us and we enjoyed so much, thank you Hessel
