Cradled between steep mountains, by the secluded fjord, Union Øye is an island of comfort in a fairytale land of adventure.

Within minutes of the front door, you’ll find hikes gentle enough to marvel at the details of nature and wild enough to make your adrenaline yell out loud. 

Hotel Union Øye houses so many memories of so many historical notables that you’ll feel intimate with times lost. It opened in 1891, from day one catering to discerning travelers. Kaiser Wilhelm, Queen Maud, Princess Victoria, King Oscar, Karen Blixen, Knut Hamsun, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Edvard Grieg, Henrik Ibsen, William Cecil Slingsby, Roald Amundsen, Kristofer Randers… all fell in love with our country right here, within these walls. At the same time, the memories of mountain adventures melt into the adrenaline pool of mountain adventures possible. Ask for our Climber’s Book, you will find entries from many world-famous mountaineers; read about their adventures, and then go outside and have your own. In the Sunnmøre Alps, you’ll truly feel like in the rugged roof of our planet.

For adventurers, kings & queens, and you.
