Eastern Norway Viken HURDAL

Hurdalsjøen by bike

  • Skredderbakkveien 9, Hurdal
  • +47 63959600
  •  /  km From You

The nature in Hurdal is magnificent, with wooded hills surrounding Hurdalssjøen. The buildings are located around the sea and extend up the valleys – a nice mix of traditional hamlets and modern construction sites, which together form an attractive cultural landscape. In Hurdal’s large forest areas, there are miles of forest roads and paths where you can discover the surroundings on two wheels. Hurdal offers over 40 lakes with fishing and swimming opportunities and fantastic views, such as Fjellsjøkampen, Akershus’ highest point.

You stay at Hurdalsjøen Hotel, located in the middle of an eldorado of nature experiences. The hotel is an architectural gem that is beautifully reflected in Hurdalsjøen and they place great emphasis on art. As they see it, well-being is something more than fantastic food and drink from Eastern Norway’s dishes. It is also something more than feeling the body find its way back to itself in their new Spa. Wellness is also when you tickle or tease the intellect through art.
