In welcoming you to the Hotel Union, we are inviting you to share with us one of the most exceptionally beautiful landscapes in the world. The inscription of the Geirangerfjord on the UNESCO World Heritage List is relatively recent, but our magnificent natural surroundings have been an attractive destination for many generations of visitors, from far and near, who come not only to stay, but to experience something that is truly unique.
Experience the landscape and nature. Hear the sound of rushing waterfalls. Breathe in the clear, clean air. See the magnificent views across the Geirangerfjord. The fjord and surrounding mountains form a unique and fabulous backdrop to your stay. In surroundings like these, your thoughts can take flight. Close proximity to unspoiled nature helps the body and mind recharge with new energy. Our hope is that your stay with us will delight and refresh you. Many of our guests return again and again – we hope you will, too.
Food & Drink
Our philosophy is to present good Norwegian cuisine based on the very best ingredients and locally sourced produce.
We use local and regional producers of sought-after ingredients, such as kid, lamb, salmon, cheese, and traditionally cured and smoked fish and meats. From local farms, we source the best-quality lefser, fruit and berries. From this range of ingredients we create exciting taste combinations and a wealth of new recipes. All our food is freshly cooked, and many of our finest recipes have followed the hotel for generations.
A haven of calm
The way to happiness and serenity begins with the mind and body at rest and in equilibrium. The surroundings affect you more than you know, and the power of nature will help sooth you and vitalise your energy levels.
In a spa experience, one encounters nature anew, within the framework of treatments based on the centuries-old secrets of many cultures, where the most valuable element is water.
The hotel is surrounded by wonderful countryside, both summer and winter. There are innumerable options for walks or longer hikes along marked footpaths, fjord cruises past the waterfalls, excursions to mountain farms, daytrips to the city of Ålesund, or exciting sledging activities or swimming under the stars in winter.
A visit to the hotel’s own veteran car museum is very popular. We have activities to suit individual guests, small or large parties, including children’s activities, and will be happy to organise all or part of them.
