Both Rjukan and Notodden was awarded the status as world heritage Site in 2015.

Located in a dramatic landscape of mountains, waterfalls and river valleys, the site comprises hydroelectric power plants, transmission lines, factories, transport systems and towns. It was built to meet the Western world’s growing demand for agricultural production in the early 20th century. The company towns of Rjukan and Notodden show workers’ accommodation and social institutions linked by rail and ferry to ports where the fertilizer was loaded.

The drive from the hotel to Rjukan is a spectacular journey in itself. You will drive over Gaustaråen and at the base of the Gaustafjellet before you enter the hairpin turns leading down to Rjukan. The road is closed during the winter season, from around 1 of Nov. to April, depending on the amount of snow.

Bondal is in the neighboring valley and is a short drive from the hotel. Here you will find historic farm buildings in a beautiful landscape. If you are fond of old historic buildings like Tuddal Høyfjellshotel we can recommend a visit and lunch at Nutheim in Flatdal, or Admini in Rjukan which was the old villa for the CEO, Sam Eyde, of Hydro and his guests. This villa has housed dignitaries from all over the world, either it be royalties or state leaders, and is well worth a visit.
