Hedmark is home to one of my favorite places in all of Norway, which a lot of people have never even heard of: Folldal.
One of my friends in Trondheim is originally from Folldal, and Dan and I stayed at his family cabin there once in the autumn. The views were amazing, and not quite like anything I had seen before in Norway. It’s the perfect place for hiking, abut also great for cross-country skiing and husky-sledding in the winter, too.
While I stayed at a friend’s cabin in Folldal, you can also stay in a traditional Norwegian cabin at Løkken Fjellgård, right on the edge of Rondane National Park. This is like the ultimate Norwegian experience – way better than staying in a generic hotel in one of the crowded tourist hubs! Check current rates for Løkken Fjellgård here
Another wonderful place to stay in Folldal is Kverbergsøya Gård, set on a farm from the 1600s. Again, this is just such a better experience than staying in a generic hotel in a tourist city – definitely a memorable experience to have in Norway! Check current rates and availability here
