South east of the Oslo fjord, about an hour's drive from Oslo and 15 minutes from Fredrikstad, is one of Norway's most beautiful islands, Hankø. (3 minutes by ferry to the mainland)
Today the hotel is situated where Hankø bad og Kystsanatorium was built in 1877. It was here artists and aristocrats came to endulge in mud baths and drink healthy mineral water. This business ceased operations during the latter part of the 1930s.
Some 70 years later, in 2002, Hankø Fjordhotell and spa opened its doors to one of the finest spas in Scandinavia. Your wellbeing and relaxation is of upmost important to us. We are proud to offer a hotel with natural and historical surroundings, such as tombs from the Bronze Age. The hotel also has 4 tennis courts, a mini golf course, a sporting hall (Hankøhallen), football ground and our own beach (Trouville).
At Hankø there are 160 private summer houses. Among these is the royal family's, which is just a stone's throw away from the hotel. The royal family has a fond interest of sailing, making Hankø an excellent destination for them.
