One of Telemark’s leading full-service hotels

Well-being and traditions has always played a large part in the friendly surroundings at Straand. This has been kept as the hotel has been expanded. In the old part of the hotel you will find a special atmosphere that lives on the with the later, new additions.

If the solid timber walls in these cozy living rooms could talk, they would have a lot to tell about the history and life of past times. Straand has an interesting and colorful past which today’s owner and host Sigmund Straand is proud of, but also feels an obligation to continue.

Just across the lake from the hotel you can see the 9-hole golf course on the Fossøy Island. During the summer the veteran ship MS Fram runs scheduled sightseeing trips on the upper part of lake Nisser and the narrow canals and water locks between lake Nisser and lake Vråvatn.

During the winter season there are cross-country tracks as well as alpine skiing opportunities in the nearby area and at Vrådal Panorama skicenter.
