Call for details of price

Nestled on the beautiful shores of Norangsfjorden in western Norway, this traditional and historic gem has, since 1850, been the choice of royalty, famous writers and romantic couples. Here, amid the picturesque backdrop of the Sunnmøre Alps, spectacular nature takes centre stage, providing the perfect stage to discover Norway’s stunning fjords, impressive waterfalls and unique aura with picturesque hiking and kayaking adventures among some of the country's most majestic waters – most notably the iconic Geirangerfjord – before you return each night to ultra-fresh, multi-course dining. Meanwhile, amid such pristine surroundings, the hotel preserves its historical charm, living in perfect harmony with nature.

Eat 

With a focus on close collaboration with local famers and suppliers, meals are as fresh as they are sustainable. The elegant restaurant celebrates the regions great traditions through an ever-changing daily menu – some of the country's best locally produced food. Enjoy multi-course dinners from roast duck to ultra-fresh cod and salmon. It’s all followed by drinks and historic tales in the Sun Lounge. For lighter meals, the hotel offers a snack menu which is served all day at the hotel. On sunny days, meals can be enjoyed in the garden terrace among the cascading waterfalls, tranquil fjord waters and hushed forests.

Sleep

With just 27 rooms, you can be assured of an intimate and personal stay, with all rooms, suites and communal areas designed in warm Scandinavian decor. Chandeliers, wooden furnishings and silk chaise lounges ensure you'll feel as regal as the guests of yesteryear – some of whom include King Oscar, Princess Victoria and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – though the pared-back white-wood walls and kitsch pink four-poster beds in more modern rooms are just as delightful.

Do

With the location stealing the headlines, you are invited to explore the blissful surroundings. Opt to hike the surrounding mountains and winding fjords, or perhaps kayak along the iconic Geirangerfjord. Sea safaris and bike rides are also a hit with visitors, and there's even the possibility of a thrilling helicopter excursion for a chance of gazing down at arguably Norway's most beautiful region. If you choose to travel during the winter, there are excellent skiing possibilities in the fjords, alongside a host of other wintry adventures. When evening comes, enjoy the sounds of the piano in the quaint lounges or share stories of the hotel’s fascinating history by the fireplace.
