Hotel Refsnes, located close to Oslo on the island of Jeløya, has an extraordinary art collection that includes eight original paintings by the iconic expressionist artist Edvard Munch.

6. Spa extravaganza

One of the longest coastlines in the world, waterfalls, and an endless number of lakes. In a country like Norway, where water has such a prominent place, it's no wonder you have a great choice of spas. Expect indoor waterfalls, infinity pools, steam saunas, Turkish baths, jacuzzis, and more.

7. Stay in style by the sea

Salty sea air, open skies, a wide horizon. What else could anyone ask for? Well, with gorgeous hotels all along the coast, perhaps a comfy bed in a room with a sea view? As an added bonus, these coastal hotels often serve freshly caught seafood of the highest quality. To recharge fully, stay an extra day or two!

8. Exclusive mountain hotels

Norwegians have always cherished their mountain holidays, and it is easy to find top-class accommodation with fine dining at high altitudes. Choose between modern elegance and hotels with a distinct historic feel that goes back many generations. After a long day filled with outdoor activities in the mountains, you have definitely deserved to rest your legs and be pampered in comfort and style.

9. Boutique hotels

Norway’s boutique hotels are superbly well-designed and give you plenty of room for rest and relaxation. Trendy, exclusive, and intimate, you will be welcomed like a dear friend rather than a paying guest. Everything has been carefully thought out, from the design and interiors to the food and service.

10. Fortress hotels

Forget uncomfortable camping beds and mediocre meals! The beds in Norway’s old, beautiful fortresses have been replaced with soft mattresses and exciting culinary experiences.

Oscarsborg Fortress is situated on a beautiful island in the Oslofjord, not far from the capital. Fall asleep surrounded by exciting history and wake up to magnificent views.

Norway has an absolute abundance of otherworldly accommodation options. Spend the night in a treehouse or in one of Classic Norway´s unique hotel gems, or take a trip aboard Hurtigruten – the world’s most beautiful sea voyage.
