I have been to Hornsjo many times, summer and winter. I have to agree with the previous comment, Hornsjo does give you the feeling of being in Kubrick's movie (especially in winter). But I think that this is the 'why' one should go to Hornsjo....More

Description

In short, ...More the hotel's style is characterized as casual, friendly, family-run and tranquil. A place you easily feel at home. During winter, the well-prepared ski network in light and varied terrain is suitable for people of all ages, for the professional skiers and for families on ski holidays. Some of the worlds best ski tracks, really. During summer, the hiking trail starts right outside the door with perfect surroundings, and cycling, hiking, kayaking and fishing. In addition, the hotel is only a 20 minutes from Hafjell Alpine Center and Hafjell Bike Park, as well as the family parks of Hunderfossen and Lilleputthammer.
