Hordatun hotel offers hotel rooms and apartments, and is conveniently located between the village centre and the ski resort. Here you can enjoy the warmth from the fireplace and the fantastic views over Røldalsvatnet lake.
In addition to skiing and other winter adventures, Røldal has an interesting cultural history to tell. During mediaeval times, Røldal was one of the most well-known pilgrimage destinations in Norway, and pilgrimage to the village is still popular today. The pilgrims come to see the healing crucifix located inside Røldal stave church, built around 1250 AD. According to legend, the crucifix sweats each “jonsok” (6th July). A visit to the village during Winter obviously doesn’t coincide with this date, but it is still worth visiting the beautiful stave church. During the Winter a ski trail is made in the village centre, and this trail passes the church.
