Staying in a nearby cabin, we took advantage of the superb cuisine and lovely dining atmosphere available in the restaurant at the Harahorn Hotel for 2 evenings during our Easter holiday. The juniper smoked duck breast and slow-braised lamb shank were remarkable. _ Note; we were not guests in the hotel, but expect the service and rooms to match their... More

Stayed at the Harahorn for a company trip last fall, and the experience, the food, the wine and the service was really great. Nice rooms and good beds in the cottages. Friendly staff, great location in the mountains above Hemsedal with good opportunities for hiking or just relaxing in the beautiful surroundings.

Well located comfortable cabins - rustic "Norwegian" style both indoors and outdoors. Surroundings provide for all kinds of outdoor activities. Main building has cozy dining hall and comfortable lounge and fireplace. Dining is an experience on its own - highly recommended.

Sitting high up on the mountainside this hotel comprises of self catering "huts" which should not give the impression they are anything other than very comfortable with self catering amenities. The restaurant food was of the highest standard with friendly and helpful service. We were out on a Bergans of Norway seminar trip canoeing and walking so stayed two nights... More

Being Norwegian, I have a pretty good feeling for where to stay in our beautiful mountains. Harahorn is simply the best if you want a truly unique feeling of dramatic landscape and genuine feeling of experiencing something different. We always rent a whole two-bedroom cabin which looks and feels very authentic yet it has got all the perks of being... More

An absolutely charming place, with lovely and cosy interior. The food, unfortunately, was quite a disappointment. Overcooked venison, "Tilslørte Bondepiker" that was completely average, a large chunk of smoked fish that very few enjoyed are just examples. This was not what I would expect from a Norwegian local food restaurant, as we have so many fabulous recipes and produce in... More

makes an excellent backdrop for this location. We lived in a cabin with room for eight. The bedrooms are a bit small, but the living room and kitchen of the cabin is spacious. The beds were good, although the family bunk was a little narrow. The kitchen is fully equipped, but we recommend the food at the hotel rather than... More

A beauiful location in the moutains of Norway. Recomended for a shorter stay, or as a starting point for shorter excursions to the nearby mountains. The food, made by all local ingredients, was beyond description. The best I ever had. And I've eaten at quite a few upscale places. Recomended.
