Get close to nature at Juvet Landscape HotelNorddal, Norway

Unwind from the slopes in a spa separated from the snow by a 15-metre sheet of glass. Tucked away in the forest near Norway’s fjords, glaciers and mountains, Juvet Landscape Hotel immerses guests in the beauty of Scandinavian nature with its eco-conscious design.

The hotel has a cabin, mill house and hillside huts, but best of all are the seven wooden retreats perched on stilts over the forest floor. Muted walls and furnishings give full attention to the pièce de résistance – a sweeping glass wall looking out over birch and pine growing by the Valldola River. In winter, enjoy cross-country skiing just outside your door and moonlit snowshoe treks through the surrounding forest. In spring snow still covers the mountains and you can ski in the sunshine wearing just a T-shirt and shorts.

Does the hotel look familiar? That’s because much of the psychological thriller Ex Machina was filmed here. It’s worth watching before you come.
