“I’ve always dreamt of running a small, white Norwegian fjord hotel. I had to paint it white myself, but my dream really came true,” says Bård Huseby. When he found the hotel he was searching for in Fjærland, a small Norwegian farming town located on an upper branch of the UNESCOprotected Sognefjord, he sold everything and established Fjærland Fjordstove Hotel & Restaurant. The picturesque hotel offers visitors a peaceful and intimate sanctuary in the midst of extreme nature. “You can literally taste the surrounding nature in our locally produced food. I shoot the deer and brew the beer myself,” Huseby says.
