Finse 1222

Finse 1222 has always been tougher than the train!

Finse is from a different world. It's because of the climate. The mountains. The absence of everything else that you normally surround yourself with. The presence of something that is much bigger. At Finse 1222, you will find much of the same rawness that you will find in the landscape outside the front door. A visit to us will change you. And that’s the whole point, isn’t it?


The 100-year old hotel has survived bombs and grenades, hurricane winds and changing travel and holiday habits. Today, Finse 1222 is a high-quality hotel offering a wide range of fantastic excursions, first-class catering, superb service and a unique historic atmosphere.


Following a number of alterations, the hotel was completely refurbished in 1980 and renamed Finse 1222. The hotel has 43 rooms with a total of 125 beds. The hotel has a fully licensed bar and restaurant, as well as its own bakery which makes fresh bread and Finse rolls every day.


You can only reach Finse by train, bike or on skis. This creates a completely different feeling of being protected from the outside world!



Our kitchen offers both variation and excitement, just like the fantastic surroundings at Finse. Start the day with our generous breakfast buffet with freshly baked Jøkul bread on the table. Prepare your own packed lunch and enjoy it in the great outdoors and then round off the day with a three-course Finse evening meal. The menu is set in advance by our chef. We prepare all our food ourselves using only the best ingredients.


Good food needs good drink. Our wines are handpicked from our supplier Moestue Grape Selection. For larger groups, we can customise events around the food. We can offer lunch in a lavvo (a Sami tent) for example. For parties, you can let our chef put the menu together, either on his own or in consultation with you.


We promise you an unforgettable culinary experience!

Sykkel 1222 – bike hire

The best bikes along Rallarvegen can be hired from Sykkel 1222. Our Merida bikes are high quality, modern and new. Bikes undergo a full service between each cleaning. This involves cleaning the bike, replacing worn parts and tightening or slackening screws as necessary.


Bikes should be booked well in advance and can be collected from our bike shop, which is situated on the platform. All bikes can be returned to either Myrdal or Flam before 12.00pm on the following day. We will arrange for them to be transported back to Finse.


We also hire out bike trailers and bike bags to our bike hire customers. We do not hire out bike helmets for insurance reasons. You can either buy a bike helmet from us or bring your own. In the shop, we also sell bike equipment and clothing and can carry out repairs on your own bike.
