One of the unique benefits to staying at Finse 1222 is the hotel’s location between two national parks and protected areas. This puts guests in a prime location to experience a wide variety of outdoor activities, such as skiing in the winter or hiking and cycling in the summer months.

Guests can visit Klemsbu, a cottage resting 1600 meters above the sea. It is a resting place along a ski route. This volunteer-run cottage also offers refreshments: waffles, hot chocolate, and other beverages. The Rallar museum is also nearby, a wonderful museum for those wishing to learn more about the Bergen railway, Rallarvegen, and other locomotives. Finsehytta, a Norwegian Trekking Association run tourist cottage, is host to several activities including Europe’s highest brewery. Sitting at 1223 meters above sea level, the brewery – or microbryggeri – utilizes clean and fresh mountain water, barley malt, hops flowers, and brewer’s yeast.

Star Wars fans are sure to be excited to explore the landscape around the hotel as it was a primary filming location for the 1979 film, The Empire Strikes Back. Not only did the hotel and the nearby Hardangerjøkulen glacier serve as the set for the ice planet Hoth, but the films cast and crew stayed in the hotel during the shoot. The hotel hosts a Star Wars weekend yearly which features tours, lectures, interviews, and more.
