Located in the Telemark Region, this hotel is next to the Gaustatoppen Mountain. It features a relaxation area with mountain views, a popular bar and ski-in ski-out access. Right next to the ski resort. Good size and fun swimming pool. Good evening entertainment.
A beautiful place to visit and have a look around. A few nice places you could eat, I tried the little restaurant next to where I stayed at Hytteby. The town is easy to get around as there is mostly one street that goes all the way through. The fact that Norways oldest cablecart (krossbannen) was there was really nice and I did take a trip up and the view was amazing.
Rjukan is a small town in a deep valley, with the most beautiful waterfalls on both sides. In the winter the steep sides make that there is never sun, which is why they placed mirror to reflect sunlight onto the village square. The mountains surrounding the village are the biggest highlight of the town, the Hardanger Vidda highlands on the north side, where there is a cable car going up and the Gaustatoppen on the south side, the highest mountain of southern Norway, where also a cable car inside the mountain can take you up, or go for a beautiful hike! In the town, the museum in the old hydro-electricity plant is definitely worth a visit, also because it was the location of a major sabotage action from the Norwegian resistance in WW2, to destroy the German manufacture of enriched hydrogen.
A dull town with a drive-through feel. The hydro- electric plant and its relevance to Norwegian history is impressive - but as for accommodation in the town. Seriously lacking in anything vaguely decent
Rjukan is a great place both winter and summer. Winter time you have the best ski possibilites both for downhill and cross country. There is cottages and ski resorts to stay at and you can ski straight out from the cottages. Summer there is fanastic walks on the mountains, cycling and climbing. If you are active person there is plenty activites both summer and winter
Rjukan is an interesting place. People we met there were pleasant. The Industrial Workers Museum at Vermork is definitely worth a visit. The socialist workers spin at the museum is kind of silly. Probably required by some government types to support the real reason for the museum - the World War II events to stop production and shipment of heavy water from Hydro Plant for German atomic fission research. It's a great true story of Norwegian resistance to the Nazis. Beautiful mountain location near awesome Tinn Lake.
The hytte was cute and had absolutely everything we needed. Cozy inside, functional and modern enough.
