During this trip, you will enjoy taking the pulse of Oslo, then tame the immensity of the immaculate lands of the country.
Experience Norwegian slow-life, nestled in a confidential address: intimate cocoon, open fire and generous cuisine
Dog sled ride, ice fishing, private sauna: everything is planned!
Norway in winter evokes the sun disappearing early behind the horizon, the immaculate regions of the Far North, dog sled escapades on the vast plateaus of Lapland... but also territories difficult to access, requiring multiple connections and substantial journey times. However, just a few hours by car from Oslo, the Valdres region offers landscapes and sensations 100% Made in Norway. A trip designed to live in Norwegian winter for two, closer to nature, in the comfort of beautiful addresses.
Near the Jotunheimen National Park, in the heart of forests covered with a white coat and dotted with frozen lakes, you settle in a charming hotel, ideal refuge to enjoy together this winter break. On your agenda - a dog sled ride to improvise musher, and another on snowshoes, followed by an ice fishing session. The rest of the time, you have a car to explore as you wish around Heggenes, as well as the assistance of our English-speaking concierge at destination. And then, of course, invigorating passages by the sauna, evenings by the fireside bundled up in a plaid. Winter as you dream it!
Your hotel surrounded by nature in Heggenes
An exceptional setting, a spontaneous and warm welcome, nicely designed rooms and a good table d'hôtes: everything is there! Nestled between the Hegge Fjord and Jotunheimen National Park, the highest mountain range in Norway, and perched 500 m above sea level, this charming address is surrounded by forests and lakes. It reveals itself in the guise of a pretty wooden house, typical of the architecture of the Valdres region. These are a few rooms and suites with personalized decoration and themed by country (Rome suite, French room, Swedish room, New York suite...), expression of the creative inspiration of the owners, former graphic designer and interior designer. Caring owners and fine connoisseurs of the region, always on hand to advise their hosts. In the restaurant, you will appreciate a generous cuisine close to its roots, to be enjoyed alongside a wood stove which diffuses a gentle heat. The address distills all the ingredients for relaxation - including the sauna, which we privatize for you for an evening.
