Leave the hubbub of modern life and step into a Scandinavian folk tale. Settled on the crest of a hill, this woodland retreat has a log cabin look but a boutique hotel feel. The scent of timber hangs in the air. You’re greeted as though you’re a guest in a private home. Then it’s time to slow down as days drift by in languid luxury.


Offering a traditional restaurant and private jetty, Storfjord Hotel is 9 km from Skodje village. Ålesund city centre is a 35-minute drive from Storfjord Hotel. Vigra Airport is 28 km away. 


Storfjord Hotel is a handcrafted haven. Inside is a calming combination of traditional Norwegian features and über-modern design, with a soothing palette, snug corners, and carefully selected art and antiques. All rooms include a balcony and fjord, mountain or forest views, depending on room types.


There’s plenty to satisfy an adventurous spirit. Hiking, fishing, sailing, skiing – however you want to see this part of Norway, Storfjord Hotel is a picture-perfect jumping off point. Go fishing around Ålesund or paddle from the hotel to Glomset Cove in a kayak. You may even have seals and puffins for company. A private boat or helicopter trip to the waterfalls at Geirangerfjord and cloud-capped peaks around Hjorundfjord are musts. Back on dry land, short woodland walking trails weave around Storjord, or enjoy the more advanced hiking in the Sunmøre Alps. If that works up an appetite, you can request a cookery class.
