Sølvgarden Hotel & Holiday Centre – A little fairy tale

Welcome to Sølvgarden!

Surrounded by waterfalls and mountains, Sølvgarden is located in the idyllic Setesdal Valley, where you can unwind in serene surroundings, enjoy the magnificent scenery and experience Norwegian culture and traditions. Sølvgarden is in the centre of the village of Rysstad, close to the River Otra, where you can go fishing, swimming and canoeing.

Sølvgarden is rated by the Norwegian Hospitality Association as a 4-star hotel with a 5-star campsite.

We provide bright and modern rooms, all with free WiFi access and TV. The restaurant, which is open every day, features a variety of food options, from small dishes to an à la carte menu. We take pride in maintaining culinary traditions and serving local dishes. Our restaurant is fully licensed. In the summertime, the outdoor restaurant, Smedens Terrasse (the Smith’s Terrace), is a favourite among visitors. In addition, we have rooms specially equipped for meetings, courses and conferences, as well as function rooms for both formal and informal occasions. Our silversmith workshop and our gift shop, Sylvbui, are run nowadays by the third generation of silversmiths.

Sølvgarden is located in the centre of the Setesdal Valley, close to attractions and activities. Only 10 minutes away by car is the magnificent Brokke area, with alpine ski slopes and cross-country tracks as well as unique rock and ice climbing routes. If you prefer hiking, fishing or cycling, you will find several trails at Rysstad. We are located about two hours away from the towns of Stavanger to the west and Kristiansand to the south, about an hour from Hovden mountain resort at the top of the valley, and an hour and a half from the beautiful Lysefjorden. The county of Telemark, with its rich cultural traditions, is also about an hour and a half away.
