From a night spent amid nature to an indulgent waterfront stay in the capital, Norway offers romantic getaways to suit all moods. And Local contributor David NIkel has found six of the best.
Whether your idea of romance is to enjoy stunning landscapes, take advantage of world-class facilities, hunt the northern lights, indulge in a sumptuous Norwegian breakfast buffet or simply get pampered, there’s a hotel for you here.
At one with nature
In complete contrast to other hotels, the focus of your stay at the Juvet Landscape Hotel is not fancy gadgets or décor, but rather showcasing what’s outside. Floor-to-ceiling windows perfectly frame the snow-capped peaks, lush greenery and ice blue river to provide the most memorable of wake-up calls.
That’s not to say the hotel itself isn’t interesting, especially for fans of modern architecture. Each cabin is built as a cube on wooden stilts so as to leave as small a mark on nature as possible.
It’s the perfect surprise overnighter on a road trip through the fjords, as despite the remote feeling, the hotel is easily accessible on the road between Trollstigen and Geiranger. A double room with breakfast for two comes in at 3,500 NOK.
