The hotel has an interesting history and appears to be well maintained. It has good food, both breakfast and dinner. Staff is cheerful and helpful. The view is spectacular over the lake towards the mountains and the glacier Hardangerjøkulen. It is a good base for day trips in the nearby mountains, to the glacier or to ride Rallarvegen. Or you...

We were herw for the second time, for hiking to the glacier. Situated right at the highest placed railway station in Norway, the surroundings are spectacular. The hotel itself is ok, but not outstanding. Food is good, but the evening meal are not sufficiant for persons coming in from a days hike. The staff is friendly and do their best... More

Third time here and the Food is even better than last time. The situation and view are unbeatable, you just have to choose the best weather. The fixed dinner menu tasted fantastic. Whether you want to ski in Winter or rent a mountain bike and cycle across the old track over the mountain to Flåm or book a guide to... More

This hotel was such a pleasant surprise. We were hiking in the area and did not know what to expect for accommodations. the location is spectacular - right on the shores of the lake. Although the decor was spartan and the rooms small, they were clean and had everything we needed (except a hair dryer, which may be available upon... More

We stayed here the night before we did the bike ride from Finse to Flam. Not knowing what to expect we were a little surprised at the small size of the room. We also didn't know at the time of booking the accommodation that the evening meal was included in the room price. And boy, was the meal a fabulous... More

I recently celebrated my 60th birthday at Finse. We arrived by train (only way) on the Friday evening and left on Sunday. All 38 of us. And about half of us did the Rallarvegen bike ride down to Flaam. The service and organization could not have been better. We were all checked into our rooms within 15 minutes which is... More

I've been staying here since 2006 for stays of between 1 and 3 weeks apiece. Whilst the weather is always different, the experience of staying in such a historic landmark building is always fantastic. Remember this is a historic ski lodge with only a few mod cons and you won't be disappointed. Some rooms have bunk beds, some have singles... More

We only had 6 days in Norway, but made sure that we spent a day and night in Finse on our way from Oslo to Bergen. There is something beautiful about the desolate snowscape and total isolation of Finse 1222. Many hotels will offer fancy therapeutic treatments but I felt more peace and relaxation snowshoeing across the frozen lake on... More

This is a hotel situated on the Bergen Railway, which makes it very easy to access even though it is 1222 meters above sea level. This is a "Must See" place in Norway. Everybody should go to Finse. You can start skiing from the hotel entrance, and go where ever, in all directions. There are a lot of marked routes,... More

I was invited to do a lecture with famous Norwegian exploreres at Finse 1222 8 - 10 February. 1222 means it is a place 1222 meter above seawater. The only way to get to the place is by train from Oslo - Bergen. On the very top of the railway you have Finse 1222 10 meter from the railway. Gladly... More
