Finse, Ulvik Municipality

4.7
#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.

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Very friendIy and helpful staff. Good Food. Room was noisy, but I think that is mostly due to the ongoing construction in the area.
  • Excellent food, super friendly staff, awesome location and views. The room was ok but needed a coat of paint.
  • Only stayed for food and drinks. The food was unusual but good. The prices was ok. Most people comes for the nature, which of course is fantastic.
