Star Wars

It’s incredible to think that George Lucas and Lucasfilm chose Finse as a location for one of the original Star Wars movies!

In 1979, the entire Star Wars crew stayed at Finse 1222, including Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and local film extras. “The Empire Strikes Back” was partially filmed outside the hotel and on the glacier, and it was a huge production. Finse represents the snow planet “Hoth” for thousands of Star Wars fans. It serves as a meaningful place for them, even today.
