Farm Holidays & Private Cabins

Private Cabins

Nestled high in the middle of eastern Norway, Jotunheimen National Park is situated in some of the most scenic landscapes in the country. Most of the activities are for the active. Hiking, fishing, and horseback riding are among favorites. Renting a cabin is the perfect way to escape the daily hustle and bustle and instead enjoy the tranquility of the surrounding nature. Nestled across the country are several great cabin retreats, each offering a unique experience. Whether you’re looking to stay close to home or in a new mountainous region, there is something for everyone. It’s wonderful in the summer, but also during fall and winter, as the changing foliage complements the landscape. If you get a cabin here, don’t forget a camera.
