Residents of a quiet village in Norway have been inundated with vacationers due to an error on Google Maps, native media reviews.

According to Stavanger Aftenbald, vacationers searching for the well-known Preikestolen cliffs (pictured above) have as an alternative been despatched to the village of Fossmork, which is 20 miles away, on the opposite aspect of a fjord.  

“When we’re within the cabin, typically two, three, 4 or 5 vacationers are available in – day-after-day,” Gunnar Bøe, an area resident, instructed the newspaper.

“They say they will Preikestolen and perceive nothing. Google Maps leads them over the Lysefjord bridge and into Fossmork. The street right here is kind of slender they usually typically get fairly upset once we inform them to return.”

Making issues worse for the hapless vacationers, stated Mr Bøe, is the truth that they will see different vacationers frolikking on Preikestolen from the village.

“They borrow a set of binoculars and might see all of the individuals up on Preikestolen – it’s fairly humorous,” he instructed the newspaper.
