I was initially thinking I would review the location and accommodations...that was, until I had dinner. We decided to book our evening meal here given the other reviews on Trip Advisor and the sparsity of choices nearby. Forget choices!! In our 10-day trip across Norway, this meal was hands down the best. We could have been in Paris, New York... More

We had a three course celebration dinner at Nordre Ekre where I also tried some of the local speciality beer. All the dishes and the fresh bread were delicious. The hostess was great and had a wonderful sense of humour. The farm has a very tasteful interior and a nice shop where you can buy local farm products. Highly recommend... More

This farm hotel has everything we ever would want: historical atmosphere, excellent food and service, clean, tasteful, reasonable price. The owners have taken their customers seriously by restoring and inviting us into their unique medieval farm buildings. We will return.

Beautiful scenery in such a remote part of the world. We saw a wild reindeer, musk ox, and a herd of probably 50 domestic reindeer that surrounded our car (no Santa, however). The Farm House is run by lovely people, and it is just incredibly relaxing and special. You can hear the roaring rapids of the river which is just... More

This is a real gem of a hotel. We stayed one night in June this year, our experience confirmed the glowing reviews the hotel has received. The accommodation is comprised of small farm buildings which are very comfortably fitted out. Some of the buildings are centuries old. They are decorated with a sophisticated simplicity. The hotel is located in a... More

We stayed here to walk bessegen, it was absolutely the closest to perfect you can get. They even opened the breakfast earlier for us so we could catch the boat. Stayed to nights, and the food was homemade all the way, and im going back this summer to walk bessegen again :D
