Finse, Ulvik Municipality

#2 of 11 in Things to do in Ulvik Municipality
Get away from the tourist crowds at Finse, a small mountain village popular for hiking or biking. The area offers plenty of outdoor opportunities, such as walks along the lake or the dam surrounded by forests and hills. Winter snows beckon visitors for cross-country skiing, sail skiing, expedition training, and Red Cross training. Film buffs may appreciate the fact that several scenes from "Star Wars Episode V" were once shot outside of the town, and all of the "Ice Planet of Hoth" scenes. Getting here is easy from Finse Station, a stop on the Bergensbanen railway line.

  • If you want to experience arctic climate with lots of activities, Finse is the place. Great hotel with amazing food. Staff are wonderfull! And don't forget, this is where they filmed Hoth from The Empire Strikes Back.
  • Exelent view, beer and burgers. Good kite spot.
  • Well deserved 5 star rating. The views are stunning and it has a very cosy interior which is absolutely spotless. I was welcomed by very friendly staff who were happy to help. Best place I have ever stayed at and I mean it. Finse is a small little place but it has plenty of character. Couldn't recommend this place more. Keep up the superb quality!
  • Beautiful place and excellent service. Highly recommended!
  • Finse 1222 is a historical hotel located in the Norwegian mountains. To get to Finse 1222 you have to take a train (skiing or cycling is also an option), which makes the location quiet and serene. The employees are polite and friendly, speak English, and give you all the help you'd need. The rooms are nice and comfortable.
