Picturesque Gjøvik, often referred to as “the white town by Mjøsa”, is located only two hours north of Oslo and is the perfect destination for a weekend with the girls. Quality Hotel Strand enjoys a town-centre location, and offers excellent SPA facilities where you and your friends can spend hours. When you start feeling hungry, wonderful culinary experiences are within easy reach.
If shopping is on the agenda, you are perfectly placed to explore the town. The pedestrian street is home to small, rare speciality shops, such as Gjøvik Sjokolade with its locally produced, heavenly chocolate, whereas the shopping centre CC Gjøvik offers a choice of 80 different outlets and restaurants.
Perhaps a walk along Mjøsa sounds tempting? If so, we recommend going by bus to Kapp and then following the beautiful Pilgrims' trail back to Gjøvik – an easy 14-kilometre walk. Or maybe try an airy high-ropes adventure with adrenaline kick at Gjøvik Klatrepark. The park is open every weekend until 4 October.
A getaway package to Gjøvik includes:
- Accommodation in double room
- 3-course dinner at PI Taket
- All-day admission to the SPA facilities
- Saturday and Sunday to spend as you please

We recommend some shopping in town and/or getting bus no. B46 to Kapp (departs 15 min. past the hour, every hour, from the station) and then following the Pilgrims' trail along Mjøsa back to Gjøvik. This is a beautiful walk in a unique landscape. The route is way-marked and leads past small, rural communities, farmyards, agricultural land, cultivated shoreline areas, wet and dry hardwood forests, and groves.
As evening falls, enjoy a well-deserved meal at one of the town's many restaurants (not incl. in the package).
Remember that use of the hotel's excellent SPA facilities is included for the entire stay.
Day 3. Sunday
Scrumptious breakfast at the hotel before check-out.
Perhaps make the most of your time together and enjoy some high-ropes fun at Gjøvik Klatrepark before you head back home?
Finally, it is time to say goodbye to what we hope has been a memorable weekend with the best friends in the world.
