“IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR ROAD, YOU CAME NEATHER FROM STRYN OR GEIRANGER AND WANT TO CROSS GUDBRANDSDALEN. HERE, MANY LEFT BEHIND THEIR TRACKS AND MANY DROPS OF SALTY SWEAT.”
This is written in the old books.
Did you came across the mountains to Pollfoss, than you are almost there. This is what thy said in Nordfjord to the people who travelled to Skjåk. The road over the mountain was the only one and was no more than a path formed by animals and a few people. They ware the first who build soma kind of a road.
Pollfoss lies still in the middle of nature 20 kms. Outside of Skjåk beside the road nr. 15. But has today a different and better accommodation. Pollfoss Gjestehus stayed loyal to the rich and old traditions. In the old main building are lots of old and nice tools and other things exhibitioned, like old carriages, postbags, sledges and so on. The whole combination take care of a warm and cosy atmosphere. We like to show the tradition and history of this hotel.
In our kitchen we use Norwegian basic products to make local speciality’s. The Skjåkauren (Mountain trout) is well known in this region, and moose meat is often on the menu. The noise of the waterfall takes care of the right atmosphere during your meal.
