Get close to the Norwegian nature!

 

Experience one of our most beautiful road trips. This short break takes you over Sognefjellet, Northern Europe's highest mountain pass. Visit the historical gems of Jotunheimen and Sogn, the perfect combination of mountain and fjord. 


Sognefjellet is one of the oldest and most beautiful of Norwegian Scienic Routes, offering a panorama of some of Norway’s highest mountains – Jotunheimen, Breheimen and Hurrungane, to name a few. See a promo from Sognefjellet here.


Included in this package:

  • 1 night at Røisheim Hotell
  • 1 night at Walaker Hotell
  • 2 buffet breakfasts.
  • Two 4-course set menus (drinks not included).
  • A traditional Norwegian "nistepakke" (lunch bag) at Røisheim Hotell


Our short break starts at Røisheim Hotell in Lom. This charming hotel has been providing “travelling folk” with a place to rest and good food for several hundred years. The establishment was designated as a posting station in 1858, and much of the atmosphere of that time is preserved in a charming courtyard of old buildings. The oldest buildings, now converted into hotel rooms, are more than 400 years old. The place has a long tradition of taking care of adventurous tourists - whether they want to climb the peaks of Jotunheimen, or seek the atmosphere and renowned kitchen of the old, protected coaching house. It is not difficult to understand why famous artists like Grieg, Ibsen, Thaulow, and Munthe fell in love with this place as early as a hundred years ago.


You yourself get to experience this renowned kitchen at 7.30 pm, when the hotel invites you in to the pleasant dining rooms for a 4-course dinner inspired by local ingredients and traditions. 


Jotunheimen National Park was established in 1980 and is the most mountainous landscape in Norway. Are you ready for hiking in lush valleys, exploring the variety of glaciers and several large lakes? The whole area is an eldorado for nature and outdoor lovers with countless opportunities for activities and exciting challenges! Find your favourite activity in Lom and Jotunheimen here.


The next day we suggest that you take the time to enjoy the hotel's Norwegian traditional breakfast before getting in your car. The tour continues to Solvorn and Walaker Hotell, a gem of a hotel right by the fjord in the idyllic village of Solvorn in Luster municipality. See the route from Røisheim to Walaker here. Travel time is about 4 1/2 hours.


Walaker Hotell is a nostalgic and comfortable hotel. A stay here is something you'll never forget. The hotel, which has been inherited from generation to generation, is a charming family hotel and an attraction in itself, located in the middle of the world`s best tourist destination, according to National Geographic. The hotel has been owned by the same family since 1690 and is the oldest family-run hotel in Norway, with more than 370 years of history. The atmosphere of the garden is an important part of the evocative environment of Walaker Hotel. White bryony climbs the walls and in the garden stand lilacs and fruit trees in full blossom. Surrounded by mighty mountains and with a view over the fabled Sognefjord, this is a place to really find peace.


An excellent set 4-course dinner is served at 19.30. Standards of both food and wine are high, and when evening turns to night, nobody needs to go to bed hungry. After a good night's sleep and a traditional breakfast the next day, we recommend further exploring the area before ending your journey.

The oldest stave church in the world was built in 1130. It sits majestically above the little hamlet of Urnes, right across the fjord from Solvorn. You can take the little car ferry from Solvorn, just below Walaker Hotel. Urnes stave church has been on UNESCO's World Heritage List since 1979. The western part of Norway is also famous for its magnificent hikes and great views. Why not try one of them? See more activites here.


NB: Accommodation at Walaker is in the new building. Supplement for accommodation in the historical building is NOK. 500, - pr. night.
