If you want to visit Dovrefjell-Sunndalsfjella National Park to catch a glimpse of wild reindeer, musk ox, and arctic foxes in their natural habitat, you can book Eidsvåg Fjordhotell in Eidsvåg, which is a waterfront hotel around 1h 30min away, and in Oppdal, there is Frich’s Kongsvold, around 40min away, or Quality Hotel Skifer, which offers mountain views and is about a 40min drive.
Sørmarka Konferansehotell in Ski and Quality Hotel Entry in Kolbotn are both around a 30min drive to Tusenfryd, Norway’s largest amusement park that also has a water park in its complex. Both hotels also offer family rooms and kid-friendly menus if you are traveling with children.
To enjoy the views of continental Europe’s largest glacier, Jostedalsbreen, you can stay at Olden Fjordhotel, which is about 30min away and is also on the waters of a fjord fed by the glacier.
