Storefjell Resort Hotel is located in the heart of Norway, between Oslo and Bergen. The hotel caters increasingly to businesses wanting to do team building in the mountains. Storefjell Resort Hotel offers outdoorsy activities in combination with entertainment for visitors looking for a multifaceted experience and is also the largest conference venue in the mountainous region of Norway, while boasting the longest buffet in Norway. “We are also seeing a growing trend that a lot of people refrain from organising a Christmas party, but throw a large kickoff in January instead.

the run-up to Christmas, and January is even better snow-wise, which makes the outdoor activities more fun,” explains hotel host Andreas Nibstad.

Top-notch entertainers The singers and entertainers booked for the winter season reach the tippy top of the Norwegian entertainment scene. DDE, Hellbillies, Staut and Vassend-gutane are all booked. “We choose performers of a certain standard so that people feel compelled to make the trek here; we are also putting on a humour show with Øyvind Blunck,” says

Nibstad. The hotel also previously hosted Postgiro-bygget and can house parties not only for large groups – they also go to great lengths to make solo travellers and small groups feel welcome and looked after. The food at Storefjell is made from scratch using locally sourced produce. “We pride ourselves on a culturally anchored culinary tradition. The recipes were made by my great grandmother,” says Nibstad. “She built the hotel along with my great grandfather in 1930. As a family-run hotel for so many generations, our mission is, as it always has been, to deliver quality to our guests.”
