A Fjordland Escape
Wow, talk about a room with a view! This is the wonderful Hotel Juvet in the Norwegian fjordlands - a truly spectacular place.
Each room has its own unique and surprising view of a dramatic landscape, constantly changing with the weather, the time of the day and the season.
The hotel is situated in the Burtigarden farmstead, on a steep, natural levee amongst birch, aspen, pine and age-old boulders.
In this little village in rural Norway, modern architecture meets and interacts with the natural and cultural landscape – and shows that the modern and innovative can go hand in hand with local building traditions and good, old-fashioned craftsmanship.
The hotel is designed by architects Jensen & Skodvin, who envisioned a landscape hotel that would blend in with the natural environment. As a result, the hotel has seven small “cubes” on stilts, with glass walls that offer each space a striking view of the valley, the river, the courtyard or the dramatic gorge below.
