Snow Adventure

Nature at its best - Vatnahalsen

The hotel's guest books from the 1930s reveal how Norwegian, British, German and Dutch skiers enjoyed their stay. Because of the steep mountains and the arrival by train, many of them called it the Nordic St. Moritz. For several decades, winter was the most important season.

Be prepared for the occasion

December, January and February are the winter months. In December, we celebrate Christmas and the whole month is mostly devoted to preparing for Christmas festivities. The weather in December is usually not as stable as January and February, which are the proper winter months, with sparkling snow and freezing temperatures. This is a beautiful time of year, with a bluish light, snow-clad mountains and frozen waterfalls. All you need is need warm clothing for a ski trip or for playing in the snow.

How to get to Vatnahalsen?

The spectacular Flåm Railway is your only choice getting to Vatnahalsen as the popular Rallar Road passing by is closed during the winter period. If you plan to travel forth and back from Flåm, book a return ticket.
