Kvikne's Hotel

By the Sognefjord lies the historical Kviknes Hotel which oozes of tradition and charm. This hotel goes back to 1752 when the Kvikne family bought the hotel. The same family still run the hotel today. Surrounded by mountains and fjords it is easy to relax and unwind.

At the hotel there is a buffet restaurant, an a la carte restaurant and a bar. There is also an impressive art and historic collection, contributing to the unique atmosphere.

Hotel rooms in Scandinavia are generally furnished with twin beds, which can be moved together to form a double bed or placed separately (some hotels have double beds though). Unless otherwise specified all rooms have private bathroom facilities, which are often equipped with a shower instead of a bath. Please note that single rooms are generally smaller than doubles. Purpose-built triple or family rooms are likewise unusual in Scandinavian hotels. Whilst it is possible for 3 persons to share a room, this will normally be formed by a double room with an extra bed. As a result space may be restricted.

Unless otherwise clearly specified a standard room/cabin is included in the tour price.
