Stordalsbu, DNT's selfcatering cabin on Hardangervidda


Stordalsbu is located at the top of Stordalen with a good view of the large lakes in the area. The self-service cabin was built in 1972 and is well sheltered from the westerly weather. Stordalsbu divides the marked route between Mogen and Kalhovd into two suitable day stages. With regard to trips in the area, it is possible to choose both easier and more demanding excursions, if you do not want to try your luck fishing. In the area around Stordalsbu there are many good fishing opportunities.

The cottage is self-catering with 12 beds. At the cottage there are duvets and pillows (sheet bag must be brought), cooking facilities with pots and utensils, as well as firewood and gas, and you can buy what you need of food from a rich food store. It is possible to pre-book a bed.

The cabin is operated by DNT Oslo and the surrounding area and is locked with DNT's standard lock. All DNT members have the opportunity to borrow the key for a deposit.

Remember to check if the cabin is open before you start. For the sake of wild reindeer, this is one of the cabins that is closed during the calving periods from and including 1 May to and including 10 June and from and including 15 October to and including 1 March. Visit the website for details on opening hours.
