Executive Chef at Gaustablikk Mountain Resort
Embark on an exciting adventure as the leader of culinary operations in a dynamic and growing mountain resort, surrounded by the beautiful nature!
Gaustablikk Mountain Resort is an iconic destination in Norwegian hospitality. Overlooking one of Norway's most beautiful mountain peaks, Gaustatoppen, this unique hotel is an oasis where nature meets care. Following an extensive total renovation, all rooms and common areas of the hotel now exude sleek and cozy aesthetics, in perfect harmony with the resort's concept and the stunning nature surrounding it. Guests can expect a distinctive experience of elegant design and natural beauty, crafting a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere.
