                  If you want to travel back in history, this is the place to visit. 'Skålsætra' is an absolute unique mountain farm, dating back to the 1740´s, situated in lovely, scenic surroundings, 680 metres above sea level. The farm consist of 22 buildings, basically old timber cabins, barns, stables, storehouses on pillars, etc. The buildings offers different facilities, some have kitchen and bathroom, and some are like living in the 17th c. This special place has a distinct fairy tale atmosphere throughout, filled with rare antiques and old farm equipment. It has striking panoramic views over woodland, rolling fields, a great lake (Randsfjorden) and snow capped mountains year around. This is as close to the core of rural Norwegian cultural history one can get, with beautiful sunsets and a mysterious atmosphere. It is a place filled with peace and quite, hence a perfect place for recreation. It is placed along the old pilgrim route. It is approx an hour and a half from Oslo and Gardemoen.
