The rumours are true: there really is wool in the walls at Storfjord Hotel – and there’s good reason for that.
Your first impression of Storfjord Hotel may be that it has been standing on its wooded hillside for a couple of hundred years. Everyone is surprised to hear that the hotel received its first guests in 2007, and that the buildings are not much older than that. But look closely – and you will see the fine craftsmanship that went into them.
Each log in the main building was hand-hewn by a master carpenter, every joint chiselled by hand and carefully fitted. Norwegians have been using these techniques to build for more than a thousand years. Even in our climate, some cog-built houses have withstood the test of time for 700 years and are still in excellent shape.
It’s the same care our ancestors put into building the Viking ships and the stave churches. We’re proud of our heritage.
By the way, lamb’s wool is placed in the gaps between the logs for insulation. So the wool-in-the-walls is just one example of how Storfjord Hotel is exceptional. As a guest you will soon discover our immaculate attention to every detail.
