Day 1: Arrival in Finse
Our Rallarvegen experience starts in Finse, only accessible by train. The travelling time from Bergen is 2,5 hours. It takes approx. 4 hours from Oslo. You can find train schedules here.
Hotel Finse 1222 is located at the highest point along the Bergen Railway, at 1222 meters above sea level. It was first opened in 1909, at the same time as the Bergen Railway was completed. From the unique landscape, the story of the railway and the establishing of the small community of Finse - to the polar explorers, the filming of Star Wars and today’s adventurous nature lovers; Finse is covered by a historical and marvellous blanket. The hotel is found directly on the platform, overlooking the stunning glacier Hardangerjøkulen.
Upon arrival, you’ll be warmly welcomed at recently renovated Finse 1222. In collaboration with Snøhetta and local entrepreneurs, they’ve upgraded every part of the hotel, now featuring several new and exciting facilities. Naturally, every detail is done in line with the unique story of the place.
Enjoy the view and a delicious dinner served from 17:30 - 22:00. Remember to book your dining slot upon check-in.
