Half the experience is in the food
KVITFJELL, Between the snow and slopes there is a world of variations of places to eat in Kvitfjell.
All the slopes and tracks of Kvitfjell have a restaurant to offer you.
Whether you are staying at the hotel, driving on the west side or staying in the courtyard. The variety is great, but know that fast food is not found anywhere in the plant. Here the focus is real raw materials. Below you can read about some of the restaurants you will find in Kvitfjell.
Fôr - Wine menu and bakery
FFFôr is one of the many restaurants at Kvitfjell and is located in the middle station, just by GudbrandsGard hotel. The place has a small bakery where cab guests can pre-order bread, rolls and cakes with a 24 hour notice. They serve delicious lunch and also have themed evenings on weekends with 5 and 7 course dinners with wine menu.
The owners of Fôr are the same ones who operate the Varden restaurant which you can read about further down.
Tyrihanstunet - Afterski and Club Sandwich
Located on the west side of Kvitfjell you can quickly see the small characteristic stag houses which are nicely laid out in the terrain right by the ski slopes. Here you slip right into the food service or sit down at the bonfire. There are a total of three buildings here: Fjøset Afterski, the pizza house and Tyrihans Ski café.
Tyrihanstunet offers good food from tempting menus, good service and perfect location just up the hill on the west side of Kvitfjell. The menu consists of, among other things, the classic Club Sandwich, the tomato soup and the pizza which is worth a taste.
The café opens with breakfast service at 10:00 and Fjøset is open until the last guest goes home.
Koia - legendary Afterski and trademark
Koia has become a must for anyone visiting Kvitfjell. Either you've heard of Lars running the place, or you've heard the sound of music and laughter here every afternoon throughout the season. No matter what attracts you, Koia is a place that does not distinguish anyone.
Koia is a three-hundred-year-old log house full of soul - and in its time inhabited by the last woman who was beheaded here in the valley ... But fear not. Today, the mood is anything but gloomy. With ski in and ski out from the middle station of Kvitfjell, it is nice to swing by here for something good to bite or something good to drink. The menu is as simple as good. Among other things, you will find Norway's best gourmet sausages from Albert Idsøe that are both award-winning and highly addictive, along with other simple foods that fit perfectly after a few hours of skiing.
The Varden restaurant is, as the name implies, on the Varden side of Kvitfjell. This is brand new and opened just over the New Year season 2020. The restaurant is cozy and nicely incorporated into the terrain right by the descent of the chairlift on the Varden side. In addition, it is right next to the cross-country trails that take you to Skeikampen, Gålå, Gausdal and so on.
The restaurant focuses on proper ingredients and home baking. Be it a proper cinnamon bun in front of the fireplace, or a good glass of wine with a lobster soup. The food is of course seasonal and will vary, but here you will find something that will satisfy and suit all.
As described above, Varden is run by the same owners as Fôr, which is located at the middle station right next to the hotel.
