TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Ullensvang Lofthus
This hotel is set in an incredible location. There are no other hotels like it in the area. The grounds and pool are great. Food at dinner and breakfast were disappointing and not in line with the rest of the hotel.

The fjords were awesome with mountains rising several hundred metres from the waterline. Photos cannot convey the spread and grandeur of the 'Fjordscape'. Several isolated villages along the water's edge. Picturesque, but we wonder how they cope in the depths of winter. An altogether inspiring ...
... out and got the photo that made the 22km all worthwhile and I managed to dangle my ankles over the edge. We count ourselves lucky we got to turn around. At the top there was a two man film crew that had spent the last two days on top waiting for a 30 second shot in the sunlight. The way down seemed to fly by, apart from the last kilometer, which again took around 40 minutes to scramble down.
So here we sit, slightly sore but at least with ...
