Juvet Landscape Hotel, Norway
Leave the world behind and escape to the ultimate hidden gem that is the Juvet Landscape Hotel. Located in the west coast of Norway and built between stunning rivers and huge mountains, the hotel invites the outside in by offering landscaped rooms, which have entirely glass panoramic views! Or why not try the rooms known as ‘bird houses’? These are built on stilts and located at the side of the mountain – so you can really be at one with nature.

The rooms are an attraction themselves, offering the much-desired view of the Alps. The luxurious design encompasses the essence of the lodge/chalet feel that you would expect in the Swiss Alps, but in the most sophisticated and stylish way possible. What more could you want?
And that’s not all. For even more convenience, the hotel also offers a paid for airport shuttle service, to and from the hotel, meaning you don’t need to worry about sourcing your own transportation.

By bringing the nature indoors, the suites at the Forestis Dolomites hotel use natural materials and have huge windows for you to enjoy the incredible views from your bed!
