Revered for its sublime beauty and ethereal landscapes, Norway is graced with natural phenomena and vistas so stunning that they could easily belong within the pages of a fairy tale.
While most visitors hearken to its glistening windswept shores in order to glimpse the magic of the Aurora Borealis, or The Northern Lights, a riveting new structure has been erected a mere two hours from Valdres and its White Line Hotel, The Herangtunet, which plays witness to a phenomenon of a different kind: the last of the wild reindeer herds in Europe.
The Norwegian Wild Reindeer Centre Pavilion is located in the Dovrefjell National Park and overlooks the magnificent Snøhetta Mountain itself.
A mesmerizingly undulating wooden building, it mirrors the ripples of the surrounding landscape and perfectly settles into the eye-line, following the plains up to the surrounding Dovre mountain ranges above.
This one-ness with surrounding nature is perfectly replicated in our favourite Valdres hotel, The Herangtunet, which effortlessly carries you away on a holiday of serenity and peace, deep within the pine forest. A classically Nordic wooden design its picture perfect exterior sits safe within a beautiful rural village, watched over protectively by the gentle mountains above.
An effortlessly stylish space, this magnificent, fairy tale-like, timber clad house is home to fabulous interiors that blend Nordic comfort and chic with a buzzing metropolitan edge.
All housed amongst the scents of snow and pine trees, and by the stunning Heggefjord lakes; this serene seclusion heralds the ultimate in true Norwegian living.
All the while, we should say, being almost bang in the centre of Norway, and so conveniently close to, well, everywhere.
Travelling in Norway demands that you take it slow, as the scenery you pass is just too good to miss.
So traverse your way through some of the most beautiful natural spectacles in the world and in a few hours you will find yourself in Oslo, Bergen, the nearby ski resort of Beitostølen, or even the Dovrefjell National Park and its sublime Snøhetta Reindeer Pavilion.
