Kongsvinger, Norway, is near the border with Sweden in the central part of the country, about an hour northeast of Oslo. It started up in the seventeenth century as workers came to build the Kongsvinger Fortress. The town of Kongsvinger is home to 12,000 residents, with an additional 5,400 in the municipality of the same name. The area and its environs is home to several hotels.

Skaslien Gjestgiveri

About 25 minutes from Kongsvinger in the town of Kirkenaer is this family-operated complex. It has large event rooms that can hold up to 150 and be used for meetings or banquets. The restaurant, which has won awards over the years, serves fresh, seasonal food in traditional Norwegian dishes. The hotel has 40 guest rooms of varying sizes; 12 of them have only a shower or wash basin, so guests should be sure to specify that they want an en-suite bathroom. If guests are feeling more rustic, from the end of May until the beginning of November, they can choose one of 15 small log cabins that have four bunk beds, an equipped kitchen, and a bathroom with shower, toilet and laundry.
