Visit Hoth

Norway: Star Wars - The Empire Strikes BackVisit Hoth

Experience

Now in it's fourth year, VISIT HOTH brings together fans from all over the world for a weekend event to pay homage to The Empire Strikes Back. Held at the Finse Hotel up on the Hardanger Glacier in Norway, this hotel housed the production crew during the filming of the Planet Hoth scenes.

View across the Hardanger Glacier towards Finse Hotel. The flat area below the hotel is a frozen lake and was used to film some of the battle scenes between the Snowspeeders and the AT-ATs.

Finse Hotel lies in a very remote corner of Norway's mountainous region and can only be reached by train (or in better weather by bicycle or foot).

Highlights of the VISIT HOTH programme include guest speakers involved in the production, visits by dog sledge to the nearby film locations, scrumptious food from a galaxy far away and loads of photo opportunities, as many of the fans come in full costume. So cool!

As there is no road access, the easiest way to get to Finse Hotel is by train. But if you're keen on hiking or biking, there are also more adventurous alternatives.
