Stay at 29.2 Aurland
In the midst of unspoilt Norwegian landscapes lies a truly serene escape. Unwind in the rural bliss that is 29/2 Aurland, where warm ambience combines with the richness of the mountainscape. This is the beating heart of the nation’s famous fjords, where you can get personal with glacial culture and appreciate icy beauty away from the hubbub.Let the reclaimed materials of your 18th-century suite serendipitously transport you, to a time when only fishermen and hunters occupied these shores. Learn about the legends embedded in the valley. Gain a taster of this slow way of life. It starts with a conversation in the dining lounge. More drinks and tales are shared as the evening rolls on.
Situated at the base of the beautiful Aurlandsdalen valley, the hotel is just over 2.5 hours drive from Bergen Airport. Alternatively, you can fly to Sogndal Airport in nearby Flaam. The village of Aurland and the stunning Snow Road are also closeby.
This is a family-run boutique encompassing a mix of abodes, from cosy Goat Barn junior suites to a quaint cabin with outdoor hot tub that sleeps up to eight. Each building has been impressively restored, offering traditional touches as an ode to the property’s past.
Who is it for
Both families and couples will relish the calm found here. Though there are no child-specific amenities, the charm of the outdoors allows plenty of play.
