As part of a series of posts on special places to stay in Norway we want to draw your attention to the unique Herangtunet Boutique Hotel, a family-run design hotel in a lodge style, surrounded by forest and lakes, on the footsteps of some of the tallest mountain areas in Norway, Jotunheimen.
But don’t let the traditional Norwegian timber houses deceive you. This ‘tun’ of buildings, looking like they belong in a folk museum offers far more than what first meets the eye. Each and every of the hotels luxurious rooms and suites are individually designed, inspired by travels around the globe, from visits to cosmopolitan cities as well as travel back in times to historical splendour.
The Rome Suite is as far away from simple style and wilderness as you can get. With it’s plush fabrics, beautiful wallpaper and antique style furnitures, this 38 sq meters suite offers Italian decadence like never experienced before. This suite would be the perfect choice for couples on a romantic getaway.
One of our favourite rooms and a true Nordic design haven offers the ultimate holiday relaxation in peaceful, simple and bright surroundings. The spacious Icelandic Room also has a bathroom with a bathtub as well as a separate shower. Close your eyes and imagine you are in the Blue Lagoon…
The rooms all come with unspoilt nature and garden views and there’s modern amenities to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. There’s free wi-fi, flat screen tv’s, slippers for comfort and a tea and espresso coffee maker for convenience.
Some rooms have private fireplaces, like the London Suite – which is the preferred room by style-conscious travellers.
The Sweden Family Room is beautifully decorated in the popular gustavian style, as taken straight out of one of Carl Larsson’s paintings. The parents can relax in a comfortable double bed in a large double room whilst the kids will love the bunk bed in the connected room. Never have a family room looked so stylish and elegant.
Sample typical Norwegian cuisine in the charming lodge restaurant, in front of the wood-burning stove or enjoy a drink from the hotel bar. Seat yourself comfortably on reindeer skins on the peaceful hotel terrace and just let the fresh air sink in. Or choose to relax in the sauna or in the hot tub.
If you want a more active holiday you can go on a dog sledging safari. Or if you are a keen skier, Beitostølen Ski Resort is only a 15 minutes drive away and there’s endless with cross country skiing trails just moments away from the hotel.
Relaxation or adventure, Herangtunet is a hotel worth visiting, with it’s unique design in an extraordinary fairytale setting. Prices start at £96 per night per room for two guests included breakfast.
