Summer idyll in Vrådal

A summer party at Straand Hotel can include great experiences in nature, good food and drink and entertainment.

How about starting the day with a bike ride in the countryside, paddling in our lakes, cycling in beautiful nature or perhaps a game of golf on one of Norway's most beautiful golf courses at Fossøy? After an active day out, you can relax on the roof terrace or in the apple orchard with a drink, or perhaps a swim in the hotel's swimming pool.

Dinner can be enjoyed in our main restaurant, on the roof terrace or down by the water in our beach bar before the party starts...

... or you can relax in our historic living rooms.

We set up a barbecue with our own chef serving delicious barbecue food on the roof terrace. Here you can enjoy the sun from morning to evening, with background music and a beautiful view of Lake Nisser.

Our vintage boat M/S Fram is available for charter. Climb aboard, grab a glass of something bubbly and join us on a cruise on Nisser and Vråvatn. See the beautiful inland archipelago from the sea.

5-course meal in the wine cellar

We light candles and set the table in our own wine cellar. Enjoy your food and drink in a distinctive setting surrounded by the scent of wine bottles, the sound of soft music and the taste of Fjell-Telemark.

Pool party by the swimming pool

Do you dream of having a pool party - perhaps with a water polo match? Then you can rent our swimming pool with outdoor areas. Here we can roll in a bar by the pool and offer a barbecue and dance area just outside.
