PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

Turf-topped eco-lodge Storfjord Hotel is a perfectly secluded retreat nestled in the lush forest next to one of Norway’s most famous fjords. Comprised of a cluster of classic Norwegian cabins, this boutique stay has mountain and fjord views, fireplaces galore and a refreshingly relaxed fine-dining restaurant (cosily called the Kitchen) that serves nightly four-course dinners. Explore the dramatic surrounds by day, then unwind in the ahh-inducing sauna and soak your cares away in the alfresco hot tub. Just don’t blame us if you duck out of city life forever after this one.

ECO-FRIENDLY

Very. Eco-friendly lights, and cleaning and bath products are used throughout. The hotel reinvests profits in community and restoration projects, and helps to fund local educational schemes.

SPA

The spa is next to the hygge-inducing hot tub, with more of those alpine views. There’s a stress-melting sauna, a relaxation area and two treatment rooms. Choose from facials, classic massages and beautifying mani-pedis; all treatments use potions and unguents by Norwegian brand Sprekenhus.

POOL

Gingerly settle into the mountain-facing alfresco hot tub – no matter the weather – after a day exploring the fjords.

ALSO

Three of the Junior Suites are adapted for wheelchair users. All are on the ground floor; two have views of the fjord and one looks out over the forest.
Tea and biscuits are served every afternoon from 3pm to 5pm in the library.

USEFUL INFORMATION

Each evening Storfjord's kitchen conjures up a four-course Nordic set menu; if you have any allergies or intolerances the menu can be tailored to suit please contact the hotel ahead of arrival to let them know.

Rooms 

Looking for the most sweeping of views? Spring for a Corner Suite and your panorama will be punctuated only by the fireplace. This spacious suite also has views of the mountains from your pillow.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

A roaring fireplace and fjord- and mountain-views try, valiantly, to take centre stage at the Kitchen – and we appreciate the effort – but the star of the show is the unpretentious four-course fine-dining experience. The chef collaborates with local producers and crafts ever-changing menus that showcase Norway’s best. Tuck into leisurely dinners of hearty Nordic cuisine and save room to taste test the famous collection of local cheeses. There’s wine, or course, but don’t leave without sampling some Storfjordbrygg – the hotel’s own ale. Skål!

Liquid Bliss 

There’s no bar, but drinks can be served in any of the lounges. Pick your preferred view and settle in with a cockle-warming cocktail.

Experience the Extraordinary 

There are bikes, snowshoes, walking poles and fishing gear to borrow for self-guided adventuring. Make the most of your fjord-side stay by renting one of the hotel’s fleet of kayaks and fishing boats – moored at Glomset Bay, a short walk from the hotel. The hotel can also arrange guided hikes and helicopter tours on request. The secluded Sunnmøre Alps – that’d be those mountains you’re staring at – rise up from the narrow fjords and are criss-crossed by a network of hiking trails. Pick your path and soak in the stunning views. Prefer to see things by sea? Hop on one of the hotel’s private boats to explore Hjørundfjord and Geirangergord (the latter’s a Unesco World Heritage area); with one of Storfjord’s captains at the helm, you can kick back and relax as you seek out waterfalls, bays and dramatically plunging cliffs. Amateur naturalist? Look for wildlife on sea safaris, run by local outfitter 62Nord, which depart daily from nearby Ålesund.

Transportation 

Storfjord Hotel sits on top of a tree-covered hill, looking out over the namesake town’s little harbour.

Planes 

Flights from Norway’s major cities – Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim and Stavanger – Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Gdansk land at Ålesund Airport, Vigra. The hotel can arrange private transfers (from NOK2,800 each way) for the 50-minute journey.

Trains 

You can catch a train from Oslo, Bergen or Trondheim to Åndalsnes Station, which is 85 kilometres from the hotel. Private hotel transfers for the 75-minute journey can be arranged for NOK5,200 each way.

Automobiles 

It’s handy to have your own set of wheels if you’re exploring more of the region. There’s free parking at the hotel. Living that electric-car life? There are Tesla-charging stations on-site.

Other 

Daily ferry services run between many of the villages that line the fjords.
