Dear Bernice, Thank you so much for your generous words. It is quite an operation to run a hotel up here at 1222 meters above sea level. Among others we only have delivery once a week with the train. If we miss milk and butter,...More

We stayed here at the start of the Rallarvegen. Very comfortable rooms and good service. Lots of movement in the lobby area with travellers passing through. They were also very patient with children running around. Only criticism is the blinds were poorly fitted and let...More

Finse 1222 was built in 1909 as part of the Bergen Railway and has since been the gateway to some of Norway's most beautiful and accessible mountain areas. The Hallingskarvet National Park borders to Finse and More across the lake Finsevann the mighty Hardangerjokulen glacier rises. Finse 1222 is a family owned hotel run by young and serviceminded people. Allthough the premises are old and some places worn by more than 100 years of service, focus is on providing a hospitable and keen service as well as very good food. The hotel offers bike rental and ski rental. Rooms are basic - we recommend the outdoors! Less
