Where our passion for history meet our care for the future

Fretheim hotel offers our guests first class service and comfort in a historic setting with one of the world's most beautiful natural surroundings. Our mission is based on a strong vision of bringing our rich history to life while we do our utmost to not have a negative impact on our natural environment. We are therefore proud members of The Eco-Lighthouse (Miljøfyrtårn), Norway's most widely used certification system for businesses that want to measure their environmental efforts and demonstrate social responsibility. We have been certified since 2006 and we went through the latest certification process in May 2015. Being an Eco-lighthouse certified business means that we continuously are looking for new strategies based on strict requirements on more environmentally friendly operation and good working environment.

The Eco-Lighthouse certification proves that Fretheim Hotel has taken measures that lead to:

  • We offer healthy, ethical and sustainable products to our guests
  • Our biggest suppliers are environmentally certified
  • Reduced amounts of generated waste
  • High level of recycling
  • Fossil-free energy supply
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Competent and engaged staff that make environmentally friendly choices
  • We fulfill the requirements for sustainable operation
  • Reduced emissions related to transport

We welcome our guests in our efforts to be a responsible hotel and we wish you all a peaceful, inspiring and sustainable stay with us.
