Voksenåsen – “Pearl of Nordmarka”- was given to Sweden as a proud token of Norway`s gratitude towards our Swedish neighbors, for the help given to occupied Norway during and after World War II.
It is our ambition to be remembered for friendliness, hospitality and flexibility. Our aim is to create an atmosphere of tranquility and inspiration, to help face the demands of daily challenges.
The hotel was built in 1960 and was decorated with bright Nordic colors in textiles and furniture of best Scandinavian design.
We are next-door neighbours with Tryvann. Tryvann is home to the Oslo Summer and Winter Park. We work closely with them and are happy to assist in the rental of equipment and the sale of tickets. We sell ski passes, have an overview of bike trails, etc.
For those guests who feel particularly adventurous the swimming and bathing opportunities offered by Tryvann are within walking distance.
