Our home

On holidays we often want to make the most out of it. The location near fjords and mountains surrouding the pictures village of Leveld, makes it possible to see a lot of what Norway has to offer in a short time. There are plenty of activities both at the farm and nearby, winter and summer, for young or old, for the sporty or relaxed.

Odelien, with traditional wood buildings, the refreshing river and stunning hills have a very special place in our heart. We have chosen to settle here, and when you visit you'll understand why.

-Perfect spot for active holiday (hiking, cycling, canoeing, skiing, horseback riding -Stunning nature -Cultural heritage; historic buildings, pictures village -Comfortable chalet -Panorama roads to the West Coast - Water falls

The farm:

What are the unique benefits of the property?
We have both the spacious and luxurious type and the traditional and unique log cabin. The photoes are some examples, but if we plan to exchange we will send more information about the cabin that would be available at the time. The chalets are all located in natural surroundings at the edge of the historic farm Odelien, where you can see logged timber houses from 1865. The river pond with canoeing, free fishing, swimming and BBQ possibilities is popular by guests. Walking and skiing tracks directly from the chalet.

Location: Located half way between Oslo and Bergen in Hallingdal, a valley known for its stunning mountains, old farms, living cultural heritage and its many ski resorts.
The village: Leveld is a picturesque mountain village, with many small sheep farms. Many famous artists have in the past worked and spend their holidays here because of the living culture and special light, and the village now has a centre for artists to stay and work and permanent art exhibitions.
