Hotel Spruce – 5 (thousand) stars hotel

High in the mountains of mid-Norway there’s pop-up hotel that is so secret and exclusive that its location shifts with the seasons. Our impact on the pristine environment is minimal, and we prefer to travel light trekking and paddling in using human power.  Welcome to Hotel Spruce – our  5 (thousand) stars hotel!
