This hotel not only boasts a romantic setting that has inspired painters for over a hundred years, but it also has an impressive history stretching back to the 18th century. Its current owners, the Kvikne family – after which the hotel is currently named – have had possession of the hotel since 1877. So you can be sure that the Kviknes Hotel’s understanding of great hospitality has been thoroughly established.

While the hotel boasts such a history, it is not stuck in the past. Here you will find the modern luxuries suited to any other top hotel, yet with the added layer of old-world charm, as well as a beautiful waterfront location, that sets it apart from the rest.

Found in Balestrand, just outside of Bergen, here you can enjoy nature, mountains and the peaceful Sognefjord from the hotel garden, or enjoy views of this idyllic location from your room or balcony. Here you have a choice of rooms, from those found both in the historic building, which are all unique and each has its own character, or more modern rooms, most of which boast balconies with incredible views.

Here you can admire the many historic art pieces and antiques which make this hotel so special. There is an on-site restaurant serving international cuisine on a peaceful outside terrace and wine lovers can rejoice at the well-stocked wine cellar.

Be sure to get involved in the many activities here, from cultural walks, wine tasting and fishing, to hiking and day trips to the Urnes Stave Church.
