A guide from the woman who has spent her life documenting Norway’s finest historical hotels, farms and guest houses.
Journalist and media personality Toppen Bech is Norway’s undisputed authority when it comes to historical, countryside accommodation with a sophisticated twist. Her beloved TV-series about Norway’s manors, Herskapelig (Manorial), aired on national TV for the first time back in 1997 and continues to be broadcasted due to popular demand.
Through her project, Bech has unveiled Norway´s strikingly beautiful farms and manors where you can find rest and peace – places that offer a new, yet deeply classic view on how to spend your nights (and days) in Norway.
These upscale farm hotels and other peaceful retreats recommended by Bech will treat you as if you were the King of Norway.
Several highlights of Norway’s activities, dining and iconic nature can be experienced in a single, three-day trip, through the cooperation of top hotels and restaurants.
