Juvet Landscape Hotel
Valldal, Norway

With wraparound picture windows and mid-century-style furnishings, the seven 290-square-foot cabins that make up the Juvet feel like mini versions of Philip Johnson's Glass House. All the structures, designed by the Norwegian firm Jensen & Skodvin, look directly into the remote wilderness, 300 miles from Oslo—where you can go grouse hunting or white-water rafting. While the furnishings are punctuated by Scandinavian favorites like Stokke and L.K. Hjelle lounge chairs, the subdued decor is designed to keep the focus on the awe-inspiring view. The only thing you won't see is your neighbors, unless you head to the spa or the restaurant serving Nordic fare in a former barn.
