Skåbu as a holiday destination this summer
Skåbu is the ultimate starting point for a holiday with a tailor-made combination of activity, recreation, meal experience and enjoyment.
Centrally located between several national parks; Jotunheimen, Rondane, Reinheim, Dovre and Langshua (Trollheimen) - only approx. 3.5 hour drive midway between Oslo in the east, Ålesund in the west and Trondheim in the north. Skåbu is Northern Europe's highest inhabited rural community with 10,000 years of history, traditions, idyllically surrounded by hospitable mountains and untouched nature.
Starting in Skåbu, you can climb spectacular peaks or hike in the hospitable mountain world, cycle steep and untouched slopes or tread mile after mile in spectacular Jotunheimen, drive charming cart roads into Sikkilsdalen, Peer Gynt road or Murudalsvegen over to Heidal and Sjoa. A stop on the way past the mountain farm Glittersjå is recommended; here the whole family can greet the elk.
Visit Hell (Helvete) with its unique potholes and rock information or book an adrenaline day of rafting in Sjoa. We book and arrange the activity for you in collaboration with Go rafting Sjoa.
You can fish and swim in small mountain lakes, or simply enjoy good food and drink in the sun wall on the hotel terrace - pure enjoyment of life!
Here are our top 5 tips:
- Mountain hike: Top hike to Sikkilsdalshø - our private Besseggen with a magical view and guaranteed queue-free.
- Cultural Heritage: Hell (Helvete); hiking in Northern Europe's largest cauldrons. You can go on the trip with or without a guide.
- Activity with adrenaline: Rafting with Go Rafting Sjoa; An adrenaline-filled day with professional guides in the Sjoa river
- Recreation: Order a lunch basket from the hotel kitchen, bring a good book and a blanket to Slangen or Olstappen. Take a refreshing bath and enjoy the day in beautiful peace and quiet.
- Sightsing: Kjør en tur innover vakre Jotunheimen, Valdresflya, Sikkilsdalen eller Peer Gynt vegen. Kanskje ser dere en flokk reinsdyr på vegen. Parkér ved Kvålsetra og ta turen opp til det restaurerte Falkefanger anlegget 15 min gange fra Jotunheimvegen.
