Entitled – Stalheim. The Naerodal Valley and Stalheim Hotel.
From a Photo by Poulton & Son.
Below the picture an inscription reads:
Stalheim. – The distance from Vossevangen to Stalheim is about 22 and a half miles, and the journey takes about four hours. The road is a good one, and it leads along the Voss River through forests of fir and pine, with mountains 3,000ft. or 4,000ft. high, until one arrives at Tvinde, where is visible the snow-covered peak of Lonehorgen. Here, too, is the Tvindefos Waterfall, right underneath which the traveller may stand. Presently the road appears quite closed in with lofty wooded hills. Past the posting station of Vinje, and lofty peaks of Malmagrons-naave in the south, and Axlen and Kaldofjeld in the east – all nearly 4,000ft. high – and surroundings become more bleak and barren as one reaches the source of the Naerodals River. The road then ascends a steep hill to the summit of the famous Stalheimsklev, which commands an unequalled view of the grand gorge called the Naerodal. This gorge is 5 and a half English miles in length. The steep mountains on either side rise to a height of between 4,000ft. and 5,000ft, and the track of tremendous avalanches may clearly be traced, in some places extending across the road. The first hotel at Stalheim was opened in 1885. It contained eighteen rooms, but was soon enlarged, or rather rebuilt, in order that it might accommodate at least eighty guests. The Emperor of Germany made a stay of several days at this hotel in 1890, and engaged a suite of sixteen rooms for the following summer. Opposite the hotel is a narrow valley, Broekkedalen, with a bridle path to Vik, in Sogn. Stalheim is 1,120ft. above the level of the sea. Immediately in front rises the grey, dome-like peak, Jordalsnuten, 3,600ft. high. Without doubt, this is one of the grandest spots in Norway.
