This hotel is a Lafta building. Lafta is an ancient way of building houses in Norway. Timber is dried for two years, specially cut and slotted into place like a magnificent jigsaw. Lambswool is used for insulation. The result is a cozy, environmentally friendly place to stay. And what a location. The hotel is located on private land amongst a million-treed protected forest. The view is of the Sunnmore Alps and Storfjorden, near the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Geirangerfjord and Hjorundfjord.
Your room is individually designed and has underfloor heating for some toasty warm toes. Some rooms have views of the striking fjords. The candle-lit timbered hall will remind you of the Old Norse sagas and the winter draws in you will want to taste the fresh seafood, local produce, and game from the forest. As for activities, well, at the risk of sounding hyperbolic, anything done outdoors in this spectacular place will certainly be woven into your soul for the rest of your life.
