The family owned hotel offers a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, as well as a spectacular location 820 metres above sea level.

Chris and Pauline Owen - United Kingdom

"We enjoyed all aspects of the tour, but especially our time in Bergen and in Oslo. The hotel and travel arrangements could not have been more straightforward, and the links were effortless and convenient. The open and friendly manner we experienced in dealing with Authentic Scandinavia was refreshing, and we would recommend you to our friends. "

W. O’Sullivan - Ireland

Thank you very much for all your help and making our holiday an excellent and enjoyable one. The organisation of the trip, the hotel quality, the proximity of the hotels to train and bus depots etc. were excellent. The scenery was breathtaking and the cities of Bergen and Oslo were absolutely lovely. I have absolutely no complaints only compliments and thanks again from me and my family.
