Hotel Aak - For adventourus guests since 1860.

Welcome Home

Hotel Aak is The Adventure Hotel of The Fjords, situated in Romsdalen - the mountain capital of Norway. It was the first tourist hotel in the Norwegian countryside when established back in 1860. Today Kristine and Odd Erik Rønning run the resort, and work hard to preserve the historic character and recreate the atmosphere of the 19th-century hotel within a modern framework. Parts of the hotel was recently renovated and the interior is Scandinavian style, but still with a nod to the past. At Hotel Aak, we believe in three primary needs to give you an unforgettable stay: flawless food, good beds and outdoor adventures.

Food

Clean, simple and seasonal.

 

 

Very often we hear from our guests, “I’ve never been any place like this before”. This truly warms our Norwegian hearts! Our food is local, home made and follows the Norwegian trends. Clean, simple and seasonal. A rustic gourmet in big portions. The food is served by our long table in the old historical dining room, where all the guests sit together. You can choose between two or three course dinner at a set time. The hotel has a license to serve all alcohol and has a good selection of Norwegian beer. We can order special wines and other drinks upon request.
