Climbing is particularly popular in the area. Turtagrø, about 15 km away, is one of Norway’s most known climbing areas. There are also several cultural heritage sites in the area.

Las habitaciones del albergue quedan un poco aisladas, dan un poco la sensación de hotel vacío. Pero quizás el tiempo no acompañaba mucho, llovía y pudimos disfrutar poco del maravilloso paraje con una cascada delante. Muy amables en recepción.. La cafetería anexa donde nos sirvieron el desayuno tiene mucho encanto.
