The fjord hotel is situated in the city centre of the calm Aurland municipality, close to cafes, gastro pub, grocery store, cosy old-school movie theatre, church, the famous Aurland shoe economusee, local traditional glassblowing and a lagoon great for picnics and for a chilly dip, summer and winter. If you prefer a heated pool instead you can use the newly upgraded local swimming hall and sauna. Aurland municipality also have one of few ecological agricultural schools in Norway, where you can purchase ecological goods in the farm-shop on the other side the road of the swimming hall. In Aurland you will also find marked trails and walkways along the fjord, through farmland and up the mountain passing the cascading waterfall 'Turlidfossen' or a short and steep hike to the 'day cabin' 40 min walking distance from the hotel. Spectacular landscape searching for serenity and the perfect selfie when sunset.
