Wake up to views of Norway’s fjords
Your vacation is coming up soon. Where are you going? Norway – Ryan and Heidi Browne
Those wanting to travel to the wilds of Norway should definitely consider staying at Storfjord Hotel in Skodje. Nestled on a hillside overlooking the quaint village of Storfjord, this hotel combines the best of modern luxury with the most astounding views of the Norwegian countryside. While Storfjord Hotel seems remote, it’s only an hour by car from Ålesund Airport Vigra and by all accounts, it’s a gorgeous drive—and the hotel isn’t too bad to look at, either. The wooden façade and grass rooftops give it all a traditional Nordic vibe and blend seamlessly into the natural surroundings. Venture inside to get a taste of the simple and tasteful décor: everything’s meant to encourage a state of tranquility, making this the perfect hideaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. But those who keep an active lifestyle need not dismay—the hotel lets guests sign up for a variety of fun activities: take a boat trip down the fjord, depart on a wildlife sea safari, go hiking through the nearby wilderness, trek up the Sunnmør Alps, go skiing, or take a kayak down the Glomset cove. No matter what you’d like to do, the hotel travel team and the affiliated 62°Nord group will do everything in their power to accommodate you. After a long day exploring the wilds, head back to the hotel to enjoy Norwegian fine dining at its best. Every evening, the kitchen prepares a four-course dinner that’s sure to satisfy even the largest of appetites. Wash it all down with an ice-cold glass of Storfjordbrygg, the hotel’s exclusive ale. Afterward, rest up in any of the luxurious rooms and suites; choose between staying in a deluxe double room, a superior deluxe double room, a junior suite or the Storfjord suite. Prices range between 2,000 and 10,000 NOK per person a night. Book your stay online, but contact the hotel directly to reserve the Stofjord suite. And be sure to stop by Storfjord’s Instagram page to see what makes Norway such a one-of-a-kind destination.
