Boutique Hotel; Haaheim Gaard – far more than a farm holiday in Norway

It used to be a run down farm, situated deep in the Norwegian Fjords, with no running water or electricity. Today, Haaheim Gard has been restored to its former glory and is part of De Historiske as one of Norway’s finest boutique hotels.

Haaheim Gaard offers the pleasure of staying in a truly remarkable place where you can savour the flavours of a bygone era. From the warm and friendly welcome to a good nights sleep in antique country style rooms – with all the comfort to expect in modern times. Wake up with the sun – shining magically through the paned windows and to the smell of newly-baked bread fresh from the oven. Breakfast is served in the bakery – or outside in the rose garden if weather permits.




A taste of the good life is what Haaheim is all about. The owner wanted to create a place where lasting memories would be made. Experience the historical Norway in this charming little quaint hotel with only a handful of rooms and suites. Enjoy a coffee and cake in their bakery or sample the finest of what the region has to offer in the restaurant. There is also a a small farm shop showcasing local produce and craft.


This small hotel is located south of Bergen in an area you hardly can believe anyone would establish a hotel. The host is originally a musician that accidentally stumbled upon an abounded farm, hidden in valley in the Fjords. He has since carefully restored the buildings and developed the place into a vibrant and thriving place attracting guests from all over the world.

The best time to stay at Haaheim Gard is probably in August as the weather is mild, the rose garden will be in full bloom and the restaurant will be offering abundance of freshly harvested short travelled seasonal food. But saying that, I’m sure it would be an extraordinary experience in winter too as it would b less busy so you can properly enjoy your serene and quiet Norwegian Fjord escape!


Uggdal is situated on Tysnes, a group of islands located south of the city of Bergen where the Hardangerfjorden and the coastal archipelago meet. It’s therefor a prime location if you would like to explore the fjords.

Fly with SAS or Norwegian Air Shuttle to Bergen Airport, which is less than a 2 hour drive (including ferry) away from the hotel. Find out more and book your stay at the hotel’s website
