The story

The rich history of the Pollfoss Hotell starts with Christian A. Hjeltar who lived in the Skjåk area. Christain had taken two old cabins apart and brought them to the place where the Pollfoss Hotell now stands. When he arrived at this distinctive place, he put the two cabins back together again. Because Christian A. Hjeltar brought these two old cabins to this location, since 1889, it has become a place for travellers to stay overnight. 


For many travellers the hotel formed a stopover along the way, to get your breath back after a long journey. The guests could eat and drink – there were even oats for the horses. Once the road across Strynefjellet was built, the two cabins could be into a hotel and guest house that could offer even more facilities to its travelling guests. The hotel and the location started to form a hub, where many travellers met up. After 1905 the hotel also attracted many famous guests, such as the writers, Bjørnstjerne Bjørnsons and Olav Aukrust, and even Queen Maud of Norway. Eventually, the stream of travellers increased, which meant that the hotel became even more famous, both at home and abroad.
