Rundhaug Gjestegård is a beautiful, historic hotel with a unique atmosphere, situated only 20 minutes from Bardufoss Airport and two hours by car from Tromsø. The white, over hundred-year-old wooden hotel, on the banks of Målselva river has a magic charm.
The nature of Målselv is absolutely outstanding with high mountains and beautiful valleys. The normally dry and cold climate is ideal for ice, snow and Northern Light - here you can really boost your chances to see the Aurora!
The range of activities is vast, it is plenty to do, but the atmosphere is decidedly chilled out. Målselv is the perfect base from witch to explore Arctic - the guests wouldn't need to spend their time traveling around; within short distance there is something for everyone's Bucket list. But there is another reason to go there too; the authenticity.
Rundhaug Gjestegård was build in 1905 and has a very interesting history. The hotel has been visited by many well - known people, like the film star Sonja Hennie, General Montgomrey, Keiser Wilhelm, HM Kronprins Haakon, the world famous author Wilbur Smith and many others.
