Parking and access

From the farm up to Øy-Hytta (Island Cabin) you can drive for about 1.5 km. Along the road you will find 2 signs within 150 meters, "P STI" (Parking Trail) and "P KANO"(Parking Canoe). If you choose the trail, it is about 400 meters to enter the cabin. Or you can use the canoes or rowing boat placed 50 meters from the road and then paddle for 300 meters.

The Øy-Hytta (Island Cabin) and the surrounding area

It is allowed to accommodate a maximum of 6 people in the cabin. There are a small double sofa bed, 3 single beds and a hammock.

We want to maintain the vegetation below and around the cabin, so it is important that everyone uses existing trails and bonfires.

The cabin is lit with candles. Be very careful with the fire and be sure to extinguish the light before falling asleep or leaving the cabin. The bonfires can be burned with caution throughout the year, but any use of fire outside the cabin is prohibited when there is a forest fire hazard. Ask us about this on arrival.

The outhouse is designed to be as odorless as possible, but we depend that everyone who uses it is pouring a box of sawdust after using it so that it covers what you have left. Sawdust is ready in a wooden bowl. In the cabin book you will find practical information about Øy-Hytta (Island Cabin). If you wonder about anything else, give us a call. Please clean up after leaving or leave the cabin in the same condition as when you arrived.

The following are included:

  • Duvet and pillow (bed linen not included)
  • Firewood for the stove and outside burning
  • Gas for cooking
  • Drinking water from the farm on a 20 liter can
  • Candles
  • Free use of canoe and rowing boat
