Description

The small town of Skjolden is set in a fertile valley of steep mountainsides, Skjolden is a beautiful place which boarders to Jotunheimen in the north with “Hurrungane”. In short distance to the hostel it is possible to see the magnificent view of the “Vassbakkfossen” waterfall cascading down the mountainside.

Climbing is particularly popular in the area. “Turtagrø”, about 15 km away, is one of Norway’s well known climbing areas. There are also several cultural heritage sites in the area. For instance “Urnes Stave Church”, which has been a part of UNESCO’s World Heritage List list since 2001. In the centre of Skjolden there is a shop with post office services and a cultural centre, which contains a swimming pool and a climbing wall.

Skjolden Vandrerhjem is located between Skjolden and Fortun, close to the Rv 55. The hostel is part of a resort with a small restaurant, camping ground with suitable sanitary facilities and a playground for the kids. There are 24 newly renovated rooms with private bathroom facilities.
