Kviknes Hotel, beautifully located beside the Sognefjord in Balestrand, is a contemporary Swiss-style hotel with old world charm. Graced with an extensive collection of artworks and antiques, the hotel oozes history with its owners, the Kvikne family, having hosted guests here since 1877, while the hotel's traditions of hospitality date back even further, to 1752. Royalty, emperors, presidents, prime ministers, film stars and artists from many countries can be found on the past guest list. Guestrooms are located across both the historical and modern sections of the hotel, some featuring views of the fjord or Balestrand city sights. Dine at the onsite restaurant, offering an evening buffet or 4-course dinner menu, or just relax in a comfortable chair in the garden, and enjoy the sweeping views of the surrounding nature, mountains, and the Sognefjord.
