Set beside a fjord in the idyllic village of Solvorn, this charming hotel is one of the oldest family-run hotels in Norway, having been owned by the same family since 1690.
The 22 comfortable rooms look out over the mountains, garden and Sognefjord. In fact, the gardens are among the hotel’s most prized features. Stroll between lilacs and fruit trees – it’s a peaceful and evocative place to unwind.
Every evening a set four-course dinner is served as guests share tales of their day exploring the region. Enjoy dishes such as langoustines from the fjord, venison from the mountains, berries from nearby fields, farmhouse cheeses, home-made apple juice, and raspberry nectar.
To celebrate the Nitter Walaker family’s 300-year jubilee at the hotel, a gallery was opened in 1990. The building was constructed in 1883 from material from an old church which dated back to around 1600. Work by local and international artists is featured, with many of them attending the opening of their exhibitions.
Spend time exploring the fjords, rivers and small towns around the hotel. A variety of walking trails will take you to waterfalls, glaciers and stave churches.
