Situated near a small harbor on an island off the western coast of Norway, the Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri has provided wonderful accommodations for guests since its establishment in the late 17th-century. It is located in the idyllic fishing village of Bekkjarvik. The hotel was established in response to a 16th-century decree by the Danish King Christian IV that there should be a gjestgiveri (or guesthouse) built at every location within a full day’s journey to sea. In Bekkjarvik, their commerce included salted herring, exported lobster, and the time-honored craft of barrel-making. Today, the Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri has a reputation of being one of Norway’s most acclaimed hotels. The Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri is nestled in the small village of Bekkjarvik on Norway’s western coast, situated in the Austevoll municipality in Hordaland County. Though small, the village of Bekkjarvik is filled with personality. This quiet locale is a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. In addition to the hotel’s recreational activities, guests can explore beyond on foot or by ferry. Some notable local attractions to explore include the Villa Lysøen, home to Norwegian violin-virtuoso Ole Bull, as well as the Kvalvåg marina.
