Juvet Landscape Hotel in Norway: At One with Nature


This hotel disappears into the arms of Mother Nature. Jensen & Skodvin Architects wanted it this way. Build in Northeastern Norway to be one with nature, the Juvet Landscape Hotel is part of a new trend in hotels: observing nature without disturbing it, visually or otherwise. The architecture at Juvet is very minimalist, all part of the grand design. They want to blend with the lakes, the rivers, the fjords – the unspoiled beauty that surrounds this sacred place. Food served at the lodge is local, what else would it be? Hiking, rafting and skiing are just some of the side trips offered, depending on the season (although one can ski at higher altitudes as late as June). The guest rooms are distributed as small, stand alone rooms, rather than built on top of each other. And each has two walls built of glass – so you can commune with nature. And they are totally private – no room even sees another. When you feel the need to get away, book the Juvet Landscape Hotel, and come home to Mother Nature.


Each room is very private and immersed in nature.


This hotel blends in with nature and tries to be part of the landscape.
