Among 170 hectares of untouched land with an unspoiled view – The Bolder Lodges hovers high above the Lysefjord, one of Norway's most spectacular fjords. A place where people from all over the world want to experience and engage in its picturesque beauty.

These mountains are filled with magical pine trees and boulders placed by the glacier when the ice age came to an end. The spectacular view is the main attraction at The Bolder Lodges, but the Lysefjord is full of experiences. Here you will find Kjerag, Fantahola, Flørli, Lysebotn and the jewel in the crown - Preikestolen - towering 604 meters above the fjord. You can also enjoy the picturesque surroundings on one of many waymarked walking trails directly from the doorstep.

The Bolder has developed the "slow travel" concept together with skilled architects, designers, photographers and artists. They collaborate with high end brands to give you the best possible stay and experience. The goal is to create a unique experience that will amaze you!
