Holidays in Norway at the seaside in the mountains!
This slogan is the best recommendation for the location of our “hytte”, a beautiful holiday home in the middle of nature (and yet easy to get to). A splendid view over “our” lake onto the mountain Havrefjell with an impressive waterfall makes you forget all your every-day worries. The three adjoining lakes are perfect for watersports like swimming, canoeing and fishing. After only 45-minute-drive you can plunge in the buzzing life of two attractive seaside resorts: Risör and Kragerö and in no more than 35 minutes you find yourself in the biggest skiing area: Telemark ‘Gautefall-Skicenter’! Cross-country skiing is, of course, an option too: around our house 40 km of cross-country ski runs are being prepared. The mountains pose challenges for numerous various hiking and mountain bike tours and not to forget the famous 105 km long Telemarks-Kanal which can be travelled by canoe or on one of the three nostalgic steamers.
Other Activities: Snowshoewalking, cross-country skiing
