National Tourist Routes in Norway
– Scenic roads for exploring Norways's breathtaking landscapes
There are still roads that are not merely designed to get you to your destination as quickly as possible. National Tourist Routes are beautiful drives with that little bit extra. The routes are carefully selected by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, and each of the 18 routes has its own history and character. Their job is to make sure the routes are adapted to travellers' needs. They do so by building spectacular viewpoints with service buildings, car parks, furniture, paths and art.
National Tourist Routes are perhaps the largest single investment Norway has made in the tourism business. The National Tourist Routes present innovative architecture in magnificent scenery such as Gudbrandsjuvet gorge and Trollstigen in the vicinity of Juvet Landscape Hotel.
People have always travelled to see magnificent architecture, but mostly to see monumental classic constructions such as old cities, castles, churches, etc. Now people are coming from all over the world to see the fantastic modern architecture that National Tourist Routes have promoted – and in breathtaking scenery – especially if you dare to stand on the edge of the viewing points at Trollstigen and Gudbrandsjuvet in our area, and maybe Stegastein in Aurland.
Journalists who write about  architecture, design, lifestyle and tourism, have written column after column about this unique project initiated by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, whose usual remit is motorways, bad roads, road surfacing and safety. A well-known architect once said, «The best buildings are those in difficult terrain». This is easy to see when you visit the fabulous stops along the National Tourist Routes.

Sagafjord Hotell
Experience the mountains at Hjørundfjorden from Sagafjord Hotel
From the newly-renovated Sagafjord Hotel at Sæbø in Hjørundfjorden individuals and groups can enjoy nature’s grandeur and experience exciting activities in the heart of the Sunnmøre Alps.
If anybody disagrees with our opinion that Hjørundfjorden is the most beautiful of all the Norwegian fjords, it must be because they haven’t been here. We appreciate this area so much because it is so alive. This very beautiful fjord is surrounded by dramatic Alpine peaks and there are people living along the entire fjord. Here you can see living cultural history as opposed to history that has been preserved and put into a museum.
This is where the tourists came over a hundred years ago and Alpine history started here when the mountaineering pioneers – Slingsby, Mohn and Randers – first fixed their eye on the highest peaks and set off. It is not surprising that they have had mountains named after them.
Hotel Union Øye is located on Øye at the mouth of the Norangsdalen valley, to which European aristocrats flocked at the turn of the last century.

Hotel Brosundet and 
62°North
Come and experience the culture and the natural world with 62°North.
62°North offers tailor-made travel experiences completely out of the ordinary. Trips to the bird island of Runde and sea-rafting with RIB boats are among the popular activities you can experience with a group.
When the day is over, you can rest your head by the sound that gave Ålesund its name in  Hotel Brosundet, a hotel full of character in the heart of Ålesund. The hotel is in a wharf-side warehouse built during the reconstruction of the city after the fire in 1904. Its interesting interior was designed by the world-renowned architectural firm Snøhetta.
62°North has other accommodation for you too – such as the Storfjord hotel a half hour’s drive east of Ålesund, and at Hotel Union Øye in Hjørundfjorden. This historic hotel was built in the Swiss style in 1890, and a hundred years later, it was restored to its former glory by a passionate Per Ola Ratvik. He collected interior detail from all of Europe for the hotel and has managed to recreate the mood from the time when Kaiser Wilhelm and representatives of the other royal houses flocked here. If you spend the night here, you are in good company with well-known writers, researchers and many others who vested the area out of the sheer love of it.

Jordbærstova
– A taste of Valldal, a taste of summer
When we have something special to celebrate at Juvet, we order a strawberry cake from Åse at Jordbærstova.
Jordbærstova is located in the middle of strawberry country in Valldal. As well as enjoying good food and drink, you can spend the night in the renovated old farm house – and join us for a walk in the strawberry fields of our neighbours.
Strawberries are a natural ingredient of homemade food in season. Their specialty is the lunch buffet served every Sunday – or upon reservation for a minimum of 20.
