“Tourists are totally blown away by the view up here and leave with hundreds of spectacular pictures,” confirms Scandic Holmenkollen Park’s hotel director Bjørn Runar Johansen. At 350 metres above Oslo, the magnificent hotel really does offer scenery like no other. On a clear day, guests can see the entire city and the Oslo fjord in the south, as well as the vast woodlands stretching northward from the edge of the Norwegian capital. Holmenkollen’s recreational quality was the very reason why the historic hotel was built in the first place.
