The exclusive access of mountains winter magic in the fjords

Union Øye is the entry point of some of the most iconic mountain hikes and trails in Norway and has attracted mountaineering nobility for over a century. The hotel itself is a working library on local and international mountain climbing and exploration and we will be happy to provide you with guides for all levels and all wishes of ski touring adventures. There are soft hikes and summit adventures to be enjoyed. The hotel has been the basecamp of many an international climber and one needs just to consult its Climbers Book, in the library, to have the mind reeling with exclusive mountaineering possibilities.

There are very few places on our planet where you’ll be able to ski from mountain tops to the fjord and descend back to the boat that will bring you back to the hotel – and definitely not any under scenery half as beautiful as the one experienced in our guided ski touring trips. We will be delighted to create – for you – ski and boat experience, with professional guides, that will forever live in your traveling memory. A must if you seek a skiing experience that only Norway can provide.
