Perfect place for nature lovers, outdoor people and adventurers.
Without electricity and without running cold warm water you can listen to the rushing of the brook in the middle of Norwegian nature, escape from everyday life and relax.
(In winter we only rent to experienced outdoor people, because Norwegian winters are often very cold.)

4 beds without bedding
Kitchen utensils
Dry toilet
fresh spring water from the river

for a fee:
Sleeping bag rental
Wood for the stove

The space
The hut is in the middle of nature and can be reached on foot. About 200 m away it is possible to park and leave the vehicle.
There is no electricity or running hot water. It is heated with a wood stove that can also be used for cooking. A sack of wood is included, for each additional sack 100 NOK. A stream flows directly in front of the hut, the fresh spring water can be used for cooking and washing.
A total of up to four people can stay in this unique hut.

The decor is rustic and economical, but also very charming. You can let your soul dangle there in the hut by the stream, but if something is missing, we are only 500 m away to help. In winter you can admire the northern lights by candlelight, in summer the midnight sun shines all night. Sometimes you get a visit from a moose or, in summer, from the wild sheep. The 30 huskies on the farm next door live outside in kennels in small packs and sometimes they rehearse their wolfish "Awooohh" at night.

Where you’ll be

Risøyhamn, Norway

About 500 m away is my husky farm with 30 Alaksan Huskies. In winter, sleigh rides, snowshoeing or farm visits can take place. In summer it is possible to ride the dog cart, take an extensive walk with the Huskies or view the farm.
Furthermore, I offer climbing tours, fishing tours or bike tours. There are no public buses. The nearest shop is 20 km away in Risøyhamn. Therefore, it is well motorized to be. Otherwise we also offer transport service for a fee.
