Across the fjord and overlooking the hotel is the Folgefonna Glacier while behind the hotel is the Hardangervidda, Norway’s largest National Park. With this truly unique location, Hotel Ullensvang provides room for complete relaxation, but gives also the possibility to explore this award winning region.
