Boutique, design-led and family-run, Herangtunet is a charming village hotel in Valdres – the picturesque central southern region that is also home to Norway tallest mountains. In winter here, temperatures plummet, log fires roar and fir trees are poetically dusted with snow; in summer, long days present verdant panoramas under the bright midnight sun.
The hotel’s log cabin exterior belies the nine contemporary and geographically themed – London, Aspen, New York, Swedish, for instance – rooms within. Each has its own distinct style, thoughtfully conceived by interior designer and co-owner Marie José. An apartment, meanwhile, will suit self-sufficient families or friends. Grazing boards, gathering around fires and fine dining without the formalities, characterise the experience at Herangtunet’s restaurant, where ingredients come straight from the local butcher, bakery and brewery. A captivating spot to escape to.
