Welcome to Ustaoset! We have named our cherished cabin Indaba - which means "meeting place" - and this is exactly what our cabin is about: A meeting place between people, cultures, nature, mountains, art, craft, tradition and modernity.

The space
Our cabin is a so-called "Ål-hytte", an architectural classic, designed more than 50 years ago - but still today regarded as modern in the typical Scandi cool style. Not pretentious, not showing off - but solid craftsmanship, built on centuries of traditions. We work and live part of the time in Africa, we travel a lot, and the interior of our cabin reflects meeting of cultures and people. We escape as often as we can to our Indaba, and we hope that you also will enjoy this meeting place as much as we do.
The cabin is situated in a typical Norwegian "cabin village, named Hovdestølen, meaning that there will be other cabins around, which again is why it is feasible to have running water, electricity and stable internet.

Where you’ll be

Hol, Buskerud, Norway

Starting from the cabin you will have a great variety of outdoors activities available - in winter skiing and kiting, of course - in summer, hiking, fishing, cycling...... There are a lot of nearby activities to enjoy - please refer to the guide. As mentioned above our cabin is part of a "cabin village", meaning that there are other cabins around, some of them have been here for more than 50 years, and some are brand new. The community here is friendly and relaxed, with a quiet lifestyle typical for these kind of "cabin villages".

I work with people and craft, and when I am not in Cape Town, you will most probably find me in rural areas somewhere in Africa - or in Norway, and as often as I can in our mountain cabin at Ustaoset.
