Breidalen is a unique location. The cabin lies deep in the mountains, with road access only during summer. It has a very genuine wilderness-feel to it, suitable for those who appreciate a bit of an adventure. There's little or no traffic, no neighbouring cabins and usually no crowds at all. The cabin has been recently renovated and re-equipped, to function well also during mid-winter. A visit to Breidalen means escaping the haste and stress of the digital world. Breidalen is run by the the manager of the adventure company called Wild Voss, based in Voss.
Full and exclusive access to the entire cabin, including the fenced area outside of the cabin.
Interaction with guests
I live in Voss, about 50 km from the cabin. I inspect the cabin regularly, making sure the cabin is always ready for visitors. I keep close contact with my guests by messages, email and phone. Detailed information, including a map, is provided both prior to your visit, and in the cabin itself.
Other things to note
There is no electricity or tap water in the cabin. Water is found in the nearby river. The cabin is heated by firewood, cooking is done on the gas stove, and candles provide lighting.
All the beds have recently been re-equipped with warm duvets and pillows. The mattresses, duvets and pillows have protective covers, but guests are asked to bring their own bedlinens, silk liners or sleeping bags.
From mid November to early June, the last 3.5 km of the road to the cabin will be covered under snow, impassable by car. In November and May, the approach to the cabin is doable on foot, with solid footwear. During the winter months (Dec-Apr), snow shoes or skis are essential on the approach.
There is little or no mobile reception in Breidalen. Reception is found approximately 1 km south of the cabin, with 4G coverage.
- Winter parking area is located 3.5 km away. Guests need to use skis or snow shoes to access cabin in winter (mid November - June).
