Stayed in a nice 2 bedroom flat (type B), with full kitchen and a fantastic view of the lake. We had breakfast and dinner included, and everything was perfect. The cafe has delisious cakes, and some board-games if the weather is bad. It is situated perfect both for bicycling the Rallarveg, and mountain hiking/cross country skiing.

I arrived today after a very long trip from my home in Texas. I came to ride Rallarvegen, though that is looking doubtful to to late snows in the mountain. (This is a risk I took having been advised that I might be too early. Oh well, it was now or never.). I've have been treated extremely kindly since the... More

We've been staying at Haugastol for three years in a row and I'm always looking forward to my next year's visit. The place is clean and has all the basics that you need. The food is AMAZING and prices are reasonable. The staff is very helpful and always making sure we got what we needed - whether it's wind, ski... More

Dropped in for a coffee whilst waiting to drive over the mountain. Whilst merely looking at a map we were informed that if we did not live there "we had nothing to do there" in an extremely rude tone by one of the employees. Doubtful we will stay in such rude company in the future if considering a trip in... More

It is not difficult to understand that biking is one of the core business here. The yard outside the main building is full of bikes. Bikes for hire. For people like us who brings our own bikes there are no place to store or clean your own bike. Anyway - we booked our own apartment and had brought our own... More

I have to say this time- as I've been there before- we didn't stay at the hotel which was enterely booked (obviously for good reasons) as there was a company's bussiness/conference weekend. Even though, I wanted to take my friends there to try at least the food, which in my personal opinion is one of the best I've tried in... More

She didnt find me because I got off at the previous station...and then she came the following morning in Ustasoet ( dont get off there unless you like to walk 16 km or sleep in... More

Haugstøl Turistsenter located at the entrance to the Hardangervidda mountain plateau is in my view the best mountain hotel in Norway. We spent 3 days at the place bicycling the "Rallarvegen" trails down to Flåm. A magnificent bike trail that took us from Haugastøl over the mountain and down to the valley of Flåm. We used 7 hours on the... More

This was our fifth stay as a group at Haugastol for a week of ski touring for a school group from Scotland. As ever our hosts Terje and Eldbjorg went out of their way to make sure this was a great success and all 15 of us could not have had a better time. The accommodation and food were first... More
