Other things to note
ENGLISH (Norsk lenger ned)
As a guest You need to bring all linen (duvet-cover, pillowcase and sheets) and showertowels. The beds are 160x200 cm, single person duvets. If You arrive by plain or fail to do so, we normally (but not always) can offer linen and showertowels for extra nok 200 pr person, on demand.

No cleaning service or fee, we trust that you as guest does a proper cleaning - good enought to make the next visitors satisfyed.

WINTERTIME
In the period October - May. Please notice that the mountainroad might be covered by snow/Ice. Any downfall could come as either rain or snow and make some trouble. You need very good wintertyres. Some days every winter, it will be a lot of snow or frozen rain at the ground (but it is hard to predict when!) These tools are helpfull: 4wheel drive (only up), tyres with spikes (up/Down) or "quick tyrechaines" (up/Down). We recommend "quick tyrechaines" to be safe. They will solve most potential problems (and propably eliminates the need for spikes or 4WD) make sure its the right size, and learn how to put them on! Hiring a car? "Hertz" for sure, and probably others offers all this helpfull tools on demand.

You will pass a barrier with toll, where you can pay by card (NOK 50).

We live 250 km away from the cabin, so while you are there, you need to manage yourselves- the same way we do. Meaning for example; put linnen on/off, cleaning after Your stay, split some small starter Wood and carry in Wood, gull some snow in the footpath (the road and most of the driveway are plowed by tractor) etc. We will of course be available at the AIRBNB communication system, SMS and phonecall.

SUMMERTIME
There are mountainroads from the mainroad up to the cabin (10km). Summertime it can be a bit bumpy but any car will work fine, if You drive slow.

SENGETØY OG RENGJØRING
Som gjest må du ha med sengetøy (laken, dynetrekk og putetrekk) og dusjhåndkle.
Det er ingen rengjøringservice eller avgift, vi stoler på at gjestene våre gjør en rengjøring så god at de neste gjestene blir fornøyd.

VINTERTID
I perioden Oktober - Mai kan fjellveiene være dekket av snø/is. Nedbør kan komme som regn eller snø og lage noe trøbbel. Du trenger veldig gode vinterdekk. Noen dager hver vinter vil det f.eks. være en del snø i veibanen eller underkjølt regn (men det er vanskelig å forutsi når!) Disse verktøyene hjelper: 4hjulstrekk (bare opp), piggdekk (opp/ned) og hurtigkjetting (opp/ned). Vi anbefaler å ha med hurtigkjetting for sikker ferdsel. De løser de fleste potensielle problemer både opp og ned (og eliminerer i stor grad behovet for 4WD og piggdekk?). Sørg for at de er av riktig størrelse og lær hvordan de settes på! Leie bil? "Hertz", og sikkert andre, tilbyr alle disse hjelpemidlene på forespørsel.

Du passerer en bom hvor det kan betales med kort kr 50.

Vi bor 25 mil fra hytta, så mens du er der, må du klare deg selv - på samme måte som vi gjør. Det betyr for eksempel; sluttrengjøring, hugge litt optenningsved, bære inn ved, måke litt snø i gangstien (veien og mesteparten av innkjørselen brøytes av traktor) etc. Vi har gode systemer for det meste og er selvfølgelig tilgjengelig via airbnb appen, SMS og telefon.

SOMMER
Det er fjellveier fra hovedveien opp til hytta (10 km). Den kan være litt humpete men sommerstid vil alle biler fungere greit, hvis man tilpasser farten. Du passerer en bom hvor det kan betales med kort kr 50.

Skammestein, Oppland, Norway

The best thing about this cabins nearest surroundings is that you can get into the nature from the doorstep. Summertime by foot and wintertime by skis (200m down the road, to groomed tracks) or snowshoes. In bad weather you can go downwards and head for the more sheltered areas and in good weather upwards for the mountain terrain and the high mountain terrain. There are also a lot of mountain roads that are nice for cycling. You will find maps and some tips at the cabin.

We and the nearest neighbors have an agreement to shut down all the lights, when we are not at the cabin. That gives less "light pollution" and more spectacular star heavens.

You can reach the "mountain city" Beitostølen by foot, skis or bike from the cabin. On a path it will be about 12 km tour/retour.

By car you can get to Jotunheimen (Bygdin) in about 30 minutes. Beitostølen in about 25 minutes.

At Beitostølen and in Raudalen there are ski resorts with a shared lift pass. The ski resort at Beitostølen is a family resort with easy slopes, in Raudalen there are steeper slopes and very good off piste opportunities.

More about the area:
Beitostølen is the gateway to Jotunheimen, where there are a total of 255 of Norway's 300 mountain peaks over 2000 meters. Galdhøpiggen (2469 m), Besseggen (1743 m) and Rasletind (2105 m) are the most popular. Bitihorn (1607 m) is also a popular summit for the whole family, the tour starts only a few minutes drive from Beitostølen.

The road across Valdresflya opens according to plan to easter holiday or at the latest the 1. of April, to Bygdin in February. From there and further on Valdresflya there are many opportunities for touring to the mountaintops on skis (Randoneè) and also kiting.

At Bygdin you will also find Synshorn "via Ferrata", which is relatively easy but spectacular climbing in the mountain, secured in a steel wire.

The boat trip from Bygdin to Eidsbugarden is an exotic journey and is one of Northern Europe's highest boat routes. For more than 100 years, M / S Bitihorn has been on a fixed route between Bygdin and Eidsbugarden on Lake Bygdin (1060 m.o.h). Another alternative is the Route at Gjende lake. The boats Gjende III and Gjendine will take you into the wildest Jotunheimen with adventurous surroundings and fantastic tour options, among other things. the popular Besseggen. Departures from Gjendesheim to Memurubu and Gjendebu, this is very popular be early to get onboard/get tickets in beforehand (Airbnb Hides webadresses - search for «gjendebaatene» and «MB Bitihorn -JVB»)

What makes Beitostølen so special is the proximity to the mountain and the intimate atmosphere. Here, alpine slopes, restaurants, pubs, shops and other sights are gathered in one place, all within walking distance. This makes Beitostølen a complete and urban mountain destination.

"Beito Aktiv and ski school" organizes activities such as mountain walks, white water rafting, archery, rock climbing and much more.

In the activity park it is set for speed and fun. Here you can drive toboggan in a racetrack, uncarriage in orbit or jump on the gyro trampoline. Dog sledding, sleigh rides and horseback riding in beautiful mountain scenery, this is a great experience for the whole family. There are many activities offered all year round.

At Beitostølen Ski Stadium there is an annual seasonal opening for WC cross-country skiing. The Ski Stadium usually opens about 1. November. In the alpine hill there are also opportunities for speed and excitement; kettle capping, airboard and snow rafting. In addition, both children and adults can drive snowmobiles on the track.

SPA and wellness can be found on the lower floor of the Radisson Blue hotel. There is also a large swimming pool and a smaller one for the children.

Ida and i, love beeing in the nature at any place at any time. To stay in the mountain is a favorite. Alpine touring and Skiing in every possible way is a passion wintertime. Kayaking, sailing, Hiking and easy climbs in the summer. Thats why we afther beeing here and there, finally decided to build our own cabin, in what we think is the best area in southern Norway. The best area to experience spectacular nature and perform the things that we like the most. The area near the cabin is very nice and the famous mountains of Jotunheimen is aboat 30 minutes away by car. Loving the nature makes us also conserned aboat the environment and the climate change. Building another cabin, is maybee not a good answer to that. Although, when dooing it we have spent hundreds of hours planning, and taken a hole lot of things intoo concideration from the start. To make the footprint as narrow as possible. To mention some things; Nature materials are prefered all the way. All furniture are Secondhand products as well as floors, doors, the whole kitchen and many more. When built, we think it will benefit the environment the more the cabin is used by people from everywhere (less footprint pr capita). We have participated more than 2600 hours ourselves in the construction prosess, we have had help from professionals in about 1350 hours, and some help from our friends. Welcome to our cabin- we hope you will enjoy and discover!
