The only thing you have to do is enjoy. Here are some images to give you an idea. A taste of the atmosphere!
You are not going to Norway to sit inside … Outdoor living is a part of the way of life for the Norwegians. Hot or cold. Beautiful or less beautiful weather. At our lodge you can live perfectly outdoors during the summer months.
Both at the front and back we have built large terraces. In the front you can enjoy a beautiful view of the mountains in a Scandinavian chair around a fire bowl. At the back we have a covered terrace with outdoor fireplace, heat lamp, sitting area, table and chairs. Even if it’s fresh and rainy, you can perfectly sit outside here.
Enjoy the beautiful and unspoilt nature! Take a look at some pictures here. Get a taste of the atmosphere!
Lodge locationHallingdal - Torpoase
Our lodge is at 970m altitudeon Torpoasen – the plateau in the mountains near the village of Torpo. You will find the village between Gol and Äl in the Hallingdal region. This region is situated in the middle between Bergen and Oslo, close to the Norwegian fjords, glaciers and waterfalls.
The cabin is located at 195 km or a 3-hour drivefrom Oslo– including the ride from the valley into mountains. You can fly to Gardermoen (Oslo International Airport), or you can moor a boat at Oslo Stenaline harbour. Whether you leave from the port or the airport, the distance and time of your journey to our cabin are the same.
For the skiers it is interesting to know that our lodge is right in the middle between Hemsedal and Geilo, the two main ski regions in Norway.
Location of the lodge – Hallingdal region

Walking, cycling, mountain biking, fishing, canoeing, rafting, etc. There is so much to do.If you want to take in some of the culture in the proximity of the lodge, you can visit the Torpo Stavkirke. It is the only stavkirke (wooden church building) from the Middle Ages that has been preserved. Lots of events are organised in Gol and Äl during the summer months.
Hallingdal valley is a real skier’s paradiseduring the winter months. The two main ski resorts of Hemsedaland Geiloare both located in Hallingdal. There are also many smaller ski regions.
With more than 2,000 km of cross-country skiing trails, it is therefore one of the most popular regions for the Norwegians to practise their national sport.
