Vatnahalsen Mountain Lodge (820 meters above sea level) is peacefully located in the upper Flåm Valley. It´s isolated from the world, with no roads or cars for miles around, surrounded by total tranquility.
After the Bergen Railway was opened in 1910, and especially after the Flåm Railway was connected with the Bergen Railway in 1940, Vatnahalsen and Myrdal became a great winter destination. The lodge's guest books from the 1930s show how Norwegian, British, German and Dutch skiers enjoyed their stay. Due to steep mountains and the arrival by train, many of them called it the Nordic St. Moritz.
We use the lodge as our main base and the surrounding mountains as our sportsground. Strap into your skis at the lodge´s doorstep and hike right into a fantastic landscape that seems built for alpine tours. The train gives us a great range and the ability to find excellent snow and descents on each hike. In the afternoon, we return to the lodge for a relaxing après ski, followed by a traditional and social dinner.
