Location - where is Skarsnuten Hotel

· ski in / ski out hotel perched on the side of the slopes overlooking the valley · 500m from the nearest ski lift · ski school meeting point is 2km from the hotel so first timers will need to get the bus to the base · resort centre 6kms (downhill) but a free shuttle bus runs during the day until 8-9pm most nights and thanks to the night skiing you can get to and from the base to the Skarsnuten Hotel via ski lifts and slopes (you’ll need to ski/snowboard) until 8:30pm Tuesday to Friday · once lifts/bus stops you need a taxi (extra cost, approx £25) to get to and from the hotel if you stay out late in Hemsedal base village or town

Please note: due to the location of this hotel we don’t recommend it for complete beginners, ski school is at the base area which will mean using the shuttle bur or taxi (extra cost, approx £25) to get to the base area. It’s an easy run down from the hotel for intermediates but not complete beginners.

Overview - hotel description - Skarsnuten Hotel description

This is such a special place to stay - it really feels like you are in a luxury, secluded ski lodge. And that isn’t too far from the truth. Perched at the top of the ski area the views from this hotel are incredible. The best place to watch the sunset over the mountains is in the restaurant with its floor-to-ceiling windows, plus it also serves up some pretty superb food too. Clip your skis on in the morning and you’re away, and you can ski right back to the door - you can’t beat that for ski-in/ski-out access and thanks to night-skiing running four times a week you can ski back to the hotel until 8:30pm most nights. Getting to and from the village is a doddle using the shuttle bus but you’ll be pushed to leave this little mountain oasis.

Rooms on upper level floors with better views are available (some with baths) at a supplement. Deluxe Rooms on the highest floor have stunning views over the valley/slopes, bathrobes and L'Occitane bath products – we love these rooms and would recommend paying the extra money for the view and added little luxuries.

Meals - food and drink in Skarsnuten Hotel

· extensive hot and cold buffet breakfast · 3 course a la carte evening meal · the food here at Skarsnuten is absolutely top class, we love the restaurant too with its floor to ceiling windows with views down the valley and over the slopes.

We update Skarsnuten Hotel's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

Unspoilt surroundings Norway’s #1 resort Nation’s best après

Often hogging the title of Norway's greatest place to ski, this small resort with its trio of peaks has a lot going for it. The cragginess of the mountains here has earned them the nickname of the "Scandinavian Alps" - and it suits them.

Location-wise, you'll find Hemsedal between the big Norwegian cities of Oslo and Bergen. Oslo Lufthavn Gardemoen and Fagernes Airport Leirin are the two closest airports. The Nettbuss Express goes between the airport and the resort. Sentrum is the original village, with a collection of hotels, restaurants, lively bars and shops and a single blue run leading through the forest and back to the centre. There's also the Skisenter area (also known as the Mountain Village), where the accommodation, ski shops, ba...
One of our favourite features here is the huge children's area, which is kitted out with seven slopes, 8 lifts and a mini snow park. The Norwegian ski schools have a terrific reputation with learners and improvers - Valles ski school runs for children and there are separate group and private lessons for adults. Lovely long green runs take you from the top of the Totten and Tinden mountains – perfect for when it comes to getting your ski legs back at the beginning of the week. The Totten run is the longest in...
In Sentrum, Kjokken Kroken has a great gourmet menu featuring the likes of moose tartar and monkfish. It’s sister restaurant T-Kronen does insanely good burgers and milkshakes. You’ve also got China Garden for Chinese cuisine and the Lodgen Spiseri for pizzas in the Ski Centre. For lunches, head up to the Skigaarden for pizzas in the sunshine (and stay on for apres ski from 2pm). Later on, the Ski Centre’s Stavkroa club is built like a Viking church with high ceilings and has long tables ‘built to dance...
