Situated within the old market town of Marifjøra, the hotel’s vibe fits perfectly with its historic location; the reception of the main house dates back to 1750 and the décor, though modernised, reflects the history and relevance of the building. Directly in front of the hotel is the gorgeous Lustrafjorden in full view, known for its turquoise colour with a green tint from the glacier, and Jostedalen Glacier National Park is a mere 30-minute drive away. Excellent for the outdoor enthusiast, Tørvis caters for kayakers, hikers, fishers and museum-goers alike. “We have about 60 per cent Norwegian and 40 per cent international guests,” says Katrin Bunte.
