To start planning your holiday to Sagafjord Hotel


Sagafjord is perfect for those who favour contemporary Scandinavian design. Perched right on the edge of Hjorundfjord with its own private marina, it’s also a popular lunch spot for boaters in the summer and skiers in the winter.

Sagafjord is part ski hotel, part adventure hotel, part stylish boutique hotel, enabling it to offer something for everyone; from families keen on the outdoors, to couples keen on ski touring. With its own private marina, it also attracts fans of the water who can cruise straight out into the magical fjord. Simple and comfortable with lots of activities on offer in the area, Sagafjord is a great option for couples and families alike.

Based near Stranda, the hotel is very much a destination for ski enthusiasts come winter as there is alpine skiing as well as superb downhill skiing to be had. Come summer the focus shifts to the glory of the fjords for boating, the mountains for hiking and the roads for thrilling trips by car.

The hotel is modern and cotemporary in its décor, with rooms decorated sparsely but tastefully. The communal areas are cosy with log fires, and there is even a glass roofed area for star gazing; and perhaps if you are really lucky, Aurora Borealis spotting.

Breakfast is a plentiful buffet with everything from homemade jams, to cook your own waffles, amazing cheeses and delicious local meats. Lunch must be good for it attracts boaters in by the dozen during the summer months and with a focus on fresh fish you can expect yummy Norwegian fish soups and simple and wholesome dishes.

There is a small sauna that is made available to guests when possible as well as bicycles available to rent. And of course, various boats can be rented with a skipper to take you travelling along the vast fjord.

Sagafjord is a great stop off point on a longer Norwegian adventure and will lend itself to a multi stop itinerary very well.

Cordelia Nicholls (Staff)

Sagafjord's location is its main draw, right on the water with its own harbour and stunning views. The hotel itself recently underwent a huge renovation, and though each room has been redecorated it is rather soulless and functional. The beds are very comfortable indeed and everything works and is to a high standard, however, it lacks the charm and atmosphere of the other hotels in Norway. The staff were really lovely and the food was excellent, great location and great for skiing.


Sarah Byrne (Staff)

Sagafjord has the ambiance of a ski hotel so don't expect luxury. Instead it is well appointed and located with lots on offer for active types.
