The farm where the Gjørven Hytter is up the quiet road away form the waterfront tourist area of Flåm. The rail line (Flåmsbana) that most people come here to visit actually passes just a few meters behind the cabins up on the hill.
The family who runs the Hytter is quite friendly and was very accommodating to us. They have two cabins up a small dirt road above their farm. It is a quiet retreat, with a great view. The cabins are comfortable for families and sleep up to six people comfortably.
The cabins have satellite TV, full kitchen and washing machine.
For an extra cost, they will provide bed linens and towels.
The first hotel at Stalheim was opened in 1885, and by 1895 had been expanded to cater for about 150 guests. Word of the hotel’s high standard, combined with the stunning view of Nærøydalen valley, travelled abroad. Royalty and other notabilities from far and wide were frequent guests, the most loyal being Kaiser Wilhelm II, who visited Stalheim twenty summers in a row.
Though the present hotel building is the fourth in a series of hotels on the site, a special ambience reflecting a personal style, tradition and comfort has been preserved. Lying in the heart of the Norwegian fjords, it is an ideal departure point for tours of Western Norway’s fjords and mountains.
