Following extensive development and renovation in June 2017, Vollan Guesthouse and hotel has 32 hotel rooms and 8 chalets, with a total of 74 beds. All rooms are equipped with private shower/WC, cable TV and wireless internet. We also offer:
- Lobby with reception & bar.
- Good homemade traditional Norwegian food.

Vollan Gjestestue is a historical building. The main building, today a cosy hotel, was built by the Germans during World War II. There are 26 rooms in the main building, 6 rooms in the nearby annex and several modern chalets with 8 self-catering rooms just 650m away. There are several living rooms for small or big groups to ensure you have a quiet and comfortable stay.

In the cafeteria we are proud to offer homemade local food and in the morning we provide a tasty breakfast buffet, also with homemade dishes. You may choose to relax in the bar with your partner or you can step just outside the door to embrace the endless hiking opportunities, perhaps even with snowshoes! Free entrance to the local gym is included for the duration of your stay.

In addition to this particular package, you can also choose to book a room directly from Vollan Gjestestue and then pick the activities you want to do with Aurora Alps from our website. 

At Vollan Gjestehus, you will be staying in the perfect place to spot the northern lights. You're also just minutes away from many exciting and gentle Arctic activities!
