The Flåm Railway stops at Vatnahalsen station only 50 meters from the hotel. Flåm is located 20 km down the valley, and from there you can go on a fjordcruise on the Nærøyfjord, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The popular trail Rallarvegen passes through Vatnahalsen. This spectacular biking route crosses the mountain plateau Hardangervidda and ends by the Aurlandsfjord.
Vatnahalsen was originally built as a sanatorium by Doctor Fretheim in 1896, but was never used for its original purpose. Instead, the building was used as hotel when the construction of the Bergen Railway began. In the early 20th century, the mountain hotel became a very popular winter destination among Norwegian and European tourists, and was called the nordic St. Moritz.
Vatnahalsen Hotel is an ideal place for overnight stays during the Norway in a nutshell® and Sognefjord in a nutshell™ tours.
