This must surely be one of the most dramatic hotels in the country, made up of a series of glass-fronted freestanding cabins carved out of spruce and placed slap-bang in the middle of a canyon, with views of the gushing Valldola river below and spectacular peaks above. Rooms feature deep, dark woods, playful chartreuse bathrooms and Japanese-Norwegian designed Stokke Tok recliners perched voyeuristically to gaze out at the stunning natural surroundings.
Pros & cons
Gregarious manager-owner makes sure you have a wonderful stay
Hotel presides over 16 guest hunting licences for visitors
Proximity to nature and unique, innovative design
A car is almost essential
Takes time to get to; not the easiest place to find either
Immediately outside the windows is Gudbrandsjuvet, a luxuriant canyon deep in the fjords east of Alesund. The mountains that lead to Geirangerfjord shoot up from the valley – you can hike up them and ski back down if you want.
Ski in a T-shirt
A short drive away is Stryn, where you can find excellent downhill skiing on a glacier throughout the summer months (or Stranda in the spring/autumn). Both rent equipment.
Invite the owner
Juvet’s owner, Knut, is a consummate outdoorsman and knows these backwaters like the back of his hand. He’s a gem to have along when you’re out exploring the wilderness.
Activities galore
The hotel organises fishing, trekking, caving and boating excursions. On one trip, you climb a mountain then ski down to the fjord – without encountering a soul along the way.
Dramatic drive
Thirty minutes away by car is the dramatic Route 63 road, known as Trollstigen ('Troll Ladder') and recognised as one of the world's most scenic drives.
