“Unbeatable location in Jotunheimen NP”
Reviewed 21 September 2010

We just spent three weeks traveling through Norway by car and on foot, staying in various types of accommodation (including our tent), and absolutely loved the Turtagro on the Sognefjellet. The room wasn't huge but clean and tastefully decorated, and had glorious views of the Hurrangane and everything you would expect from a mountain hotel.

The lobby/fireplace room was very cozy and was filled with nostalgic photographs. There was also a library full of books on climbing and hiking in just about anywhere in the world in a variety of languages (not just Norwegen).

The rooms do not have television, which did not bother us at all. An annex to the lobby had internet and a widescreen television for those suffering withdrawal.

The food was excellent, we opted for full board, which allowed us to pack our own lunch from the delicious breakfast buffet. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and we felt welcome and could relax.

The only downside to this hotel, as with most of the best places to stay in Norway, was the price, and it is the only reason I did not give this hotel full marks.

I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling the Sognefjellet in Norway.

Do you love nature? Do you like grand views? Good food? Interested in history? Are you into climbing?
You get it all here - Turtago is unique. Close to one of the most stunning places on earth (according to National Geograpic), you can sleep in good beds, eat wonderful food, go hiking, climbing, skiing, relax in the library, sit in front of the fireplace. Pure bliss. Go!

Reviewed 13 July 2008

The Turtagrø Hotel is located at the Sognefjellet road northwest of the scenic Jotunheimen national park. Don't be fooled by the address, the hotel is not directly located in Fortun but quite some distance away from it in an area that offers stunning views of Jotunheimen. It is the ideal place to stay when you took the Sognefjellet road down from Lom to the Lustrafjorden or when you want to stay longer in the Jotunheimen area for outdoor activities.

The hotel offers normal rooms which are very pricey (about double of what you would pay for a comparable room elsewhere in Norway) but also more inexpensive lodging for outdoor enthusiasts that just need a place to roll out their sleeping bag.

The hotel rooms are spacious and very clean. The normal package includes a very good breakfast. You can also opt for an included (and delicious) three course dinner menu which is advisable because of the location of the hotel going to the nearest restaurant might take quite some time.

There is a common room for hanging out and relaxing, having a drink or planning your next trip. A room with PC with internet access and a TV is also available. Note that the rooms do not have TV.

Plenty of parking space is available.
