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.

Hammocking + Romsdalseggen Ridge Hike

You may have heard of the Romsdalseggen ridge? A challenging and at times exposed hike with a majestic view. One of Norways most popular hikes. From the ridge you can see the Rauma river winding its way through the Romsdalen valley and into the Romsdalen fjord. Lifting your gaze, you will see some of Norway’s most spectacular mountains: Romsdalshorn, Vengetidene and Trollveggen. Amazing! The hike in itself is unique, but we would like to make it even more special – creating memories imprinted on your heart forever.  Area: Romsdalen                                     Type: hike with a night in a hammock Level: Advanced                                      Length: 1320 vertical m. / 13.5 km Meeting point: Hotel Aak                         Start time: 5 PM Description The hike begins in the afternoon up from Isfjorden. After a short hike up from the valley floor, we will set up camp – hanging our hammocks between the spruce trees and enjoying a nice dinner while watching the sun set behind the fjord and mountains. Rising early the next morning, we have the entire Romsdalseggen ridge to ourselves. If the skies are clear, we will see the sun rise from behind the peak of Vengetind as we start hiking. On our way down to from Nesaksla to Åndalsnes, we follow the stone steps of Romsdalstrappa – the “Romsdal Stairway” – passing Rampestreken, the famous viewpoint with a panorama view of Romsdalen. To finish off the adventure, we return to Hotel Aak, where we enjoy an “After Hike Snack” and perhaps a quick dip in the icy-cold river and a hot sauna.
