Enjoy peaceful Myrkdalen
White-clad peaks, sparkling snow and mighty mountains. Hilly terrain created for cross-country and mountain skiing. Magical winter light over the fjord, finding calm and in the same breath, great adventures in nature.
If you travel to Myrkdalen in the middle of the week, you can see the fantastic fjord and mountain landscape in peace and quiet. Located only 45 minutes from Flåm and Nærøyfjorden, you can combine superb skiing with mountain and fjord experiences during your stay.
Ski in - ski out from Myrkdalen Hotel
From the modern Myrkdalen Hotel you can strap on your skis and carve down wide and clear trails for all skill levels. The ski resort has nine lifts divided into two chair lifts, three t-bars, three button lifts and a slow-moving conveyor belt.
The 22 ski slopes are prepared every single day during the winter season; this ensures every trail is perfectly groomed Monday to Sunday.
A gathering place with traditional food in the middle of the hill
Located in the middle of the ski resort, Fjellstova Vetlebotn is the perfect place to take break from skiing. Let your legs rest while you refill some energy from the well-stocked menu.
Traditional food based on locally sourced ingredients are key for Fjellstova Vetlebotn. Dishes here are made from regional ingredients, simple fare such as sausages from Vossakjøt, beef stew from Haugen Gardsmat and dinner dishes like Norwegian meatballs with traditional accompaniments.
In Myrkdalen you will also find a continuous trail network for cross-country skiing, which is located across the road from the ski resort. We have constructed a special ski bridge, allowing for safe crossing to the trails. Here you can skate even after the sun has set - the trail is lit up until 10:00 pm. If you want to climb a mountain top, both Bjørndalskamben and Finnbunuten are great day trips starting from the hotel.
Myrkdalen is located in the middle of a mighty landscape of mountains and fjords - more than big enough to make you feel small - in a good way. Myrkdalen gives you the best experiences. On skis and on foot, down and across. It is in our nature.
Mountain skiing on Vikafjellet
Fifteen minutes drive from Myrkdalen Hotel you’ll find Vikafjellet, the mountain area that stretches between Sognefjorden, Vossafjella and Masfjordfjella. In this region, the possibilities for mountain skiing are endless - whether you want to go on a long trip or just enjoy the afternoon sun in the heights. Let conversation flow in easy-going and hilly terrain inwards Sendedalen, enjoy the view from the top of Fossfjellet towards the Sognefjord or embark on a multi-day trip in Stølsheimen.
Sleep well at Myrkdalen Hotel
Myrkdalen Hotel is located at the heart of the mountain resort. The hotel has 112 rooms of various sizes - from standard rooms to suites with several bedrooms. If you want accommodation with self-catering, you can also live comfortably in cabins and modern apartments, all fitted to a high standard.
Food experiences at three restaurants
A deep love for gastronomy and use of local ingredients defines the kitchen at Myrkdalen Hotel. All dishes are made from scratch and most of the ingredients are delivered from local farmers. At breakfast in Restaurant Nuten you can get everything you need to keep your energy levels up for a new day. Whether you are skiing, taking a trip to the fjord or just relaxing at the hotel. Here you will find, among other things, home-made sausages, liver pate, gravlax and smoked salmon, made in our own smokehouse on the outside of the hotel. After a long and eventful day, dinner will taste even better! At the hotel you will find three different restaurants with à la carte, fondue and home made pizza.
Take the world's most beautiful train journeys
Lonely Planet has deemed Flåmsbana one of the world's most beautiful train journeys - and for good reason! A trip with this steep train is something everyone should experience at least once in their life. The train journey is at just as beautiful in winter as summer.
If you are visiting Flåm, Stegastein viewpoint is a must! It offers a panoramic view of the fjord and the surrounding mountains. Jutting 30 meters out over the fjord landscape, the platform will give you a feeling of floating in clear mountain air.
