Once the farm of wealthy businessman Christen Fretheim, Fretheim Hotel began operations in 1870 as a modest posting inn for visiting fisherman. Despite undergoing a series of expansions and renovations over the years, the Fretheim Hotel still possesses the quaint historic charm that made it attractive among the area’s locals more than a century ago. Today, Fretheim Hotel remains a popular retreat tucked away amid the picturesque mountains of western Norway’s Nærøyfjord. A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, visitors can gaze upon the fjord’s awe-inspiring scenery by means of a relaxing boat cruise.
