next destination


at ts, we are always looking for the next unique place to introduce you to. we are excited to introduce our readers to one of our new favorite blogs/sources, mood of living. a norwegian friend of ours has penned a fine piece about a hidden hotel and natural oasis, the juvet hotel.


“nestled in a valley close to norway’s most stunning fjord “geiranger”, you can find juvet, norway’s first landscape hotel featuring unique architectural design. in a local farmyard, this west coast treasure has seven detached guest rooms that at first appear shy as the minimalistic chalets stand in harmony with the nordic trees. yet, the panoramic signature windows of the rooms invite the massive mountains, fresh waterfalls, and distinct characteristics of the seasons into your indoor environment.


experience the finest of luxury and natural simplicity as the beauty of the surrounding nature awakens your senses. while the fresh air renews your lungs, indulge in local foods served in the rustic barn and pamper yourself in the spa. through outdoor activities offered by the heart-warming owners, enjoy the outstanding views painted by nature while skiing, rafting, hiking and more. the rivers that weave through the mountains of norway provide some of the purest water in the world. locals say that taking a dip in the cold mountain river is good for your heart, and simply brushing your teeth in it’s waters will boost your wellness and give you a sensation out of the ordinary. juvet’s magnificence continuously shines throughout the year, but for you summer travelers, remember to venture to the neighbor’s strawberry fields–they are the best in the world!”- charlotte søia rustand
