To start planning your vacation to Juvet Landscape Hotel


At the edge of the small village of Alstad in the Norwegian countryside, seven landscape rooms and two birds' nests are dotted amongst the birch, pine and aspen trees and ancient boulders that make up Burtigarden farm where the Juvet Landscape Hotel can be found.

The landscape rooms are all double rooms built into the background, on stilts with glass walls to give an uninterrupted view of the surrounding nature. The interior is starkly simple; a colorful, small wet room bathroom with a loo, basin and shower, a cozy double bed, a seating area and dark wooden floors and walls to draw your eyes to the remarkable views outside.

There is a spa area a few steps further down towards the river built in dark concrete with several relaxation rooms, a steam room and an outdoor hot tub that perches above the river with stunning mountain views of the Alstadfjellet peaks.

The barn is the hotel’s central building that is one hundred years old, and the cowshed, pigsty and hay store that occupied it have now transformed into the dining room, kitchen and lounge area. Typical Norwegian breakfasts of eggs with smoked salmon and delicious dinners are served here, while lunch is taken with you up on the mountains or in the local village.

The surrounding area is a haven for outdoor activities across all seasons. In the winter, cross country and Northern Europe’s best off-piste skiing can be done at Stranda ski resort, 45-minutes from Juvet. For the more adventurous, skin up for some ski touring in the surrounding mountains such as Trollkyrkja measuring 1762 meters above sea level.

Spring brings the beauty of snow capped mountains and flourishing valleys, and skiing in the bright sunshine is possible until May. Summer brings a hive of activity from rafting to canyoning to fishing and hiking, and the autumn often brings dry sunny days, perfect for hiking as well.


All of the rooms are starkly designed in dark wood with floor to ceiling glass windows offering stunning and uninterrupted river and mountain views. All have WiFi access, two chairs, a double bed and a compact bathroom with a toilet, sink and shower.


The renovated barn is where breakfast and dinner are taken together at a long wooden table. The food is simple and delicious, locally sourced and seasonal. For breakfast, served from 9am, expect freshly baked bread and homemade jams, scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. Dinner at 8pm is a 3-course, hearty affair with local meat and fish and seasonal vegetables. A picnic lunch can be made at breakfast and taken with you up the mountain on a hike, or at a local restaurant.

The hotel spa is a haven after a day of exploration with its steam room, outdoor hot tub and relaxation room.


Activities available in the local area are extensive and include river and fjord kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, climbing, abseiling, canyoning and caving. The surrounding mountains are ideal for hiking, trekking, ski touring and off-piste skiing at Stranda depending on the season.
