Vetti Gard Turiststasjon
Vetti Gard Turiststasjon is a small mountain farm, rebuilt into a classical and historic hiking station. The facilities and rooms are simple, but well maintained in a traditional style. This is a perfect location to start or end your multi-day hike, or a great destination for a hike from Hjelle as a day tour.
Vetti Gard Turiststasjon has been an important place for mountaineers since the mountain pioneers found their way into the valley of Utladalen as early as the 19th century. Famous Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg once said that he became 10 years younger every time he visited Vetti, and chances are that if you have found your way there once, you will want to visit again. The farm has also housed other famous people such as the explorer Fridtjof Nansen, mountaineer William C. Slingsby and the current queen consort of Norway, Queen Sonja.
At present day Vetti Gard Turiststasjon is a farm open during the summer months, found at the heart of Jotunheimen. The farm has 13 rooms and 27 beds in total. Extra beds/mattresses can be put down in the barn. The farm serves food during the summer season.
