This is what you see to the south from the cabin. A stroll around the lake will take three hours. Trekking the mountains around it too will add another three or four hours, with a spectacular view of the whole Jotunheimen. It's a brilliant all-day trip. You start and end up by the cabin. On foot. No driving needed. Photo: Tom Henning Bratlie.National park: The cabin is situated in a protected wildlife area, with very strict regulations. It's easy to see why. In the background: The Besseggen ridge that inspired the Nobel prize-winning playwrite Henrik Ibsens "Peer Gynt" play, and the mighty Besshø peak (2 258 meters above sea level) behind it. You may reach them both on foot from the cabin, if you're willing to make it a decent full day-trip. Photo: Tom Henning Bratlie.

It's rustique. It's primitive. And it's stunningly beautiful. Welcome to Jotunheimen national park, home of the giants in Norse mythology. If you're into trekking, solitude and enchanting nature, look no further. Trolls apart; It's family friendly :)
