Femundshytten was used as a smelting house by Røros Kobberverk from 1739 to 1822. A whole new community was created, and in the late 1700s the area comprised 11 farms and some 80-90 inhabitants. Stay in one of the cabins surrounded by old farm culture, and learn what life was like in this remote area far from other settlements. It is also possible to hire fisherman's shacks in Femundsmarka National Park or stay at mountain farms. In 2010, Femundhytten was added to UNESCO's World Heritage List.
Galten Farm – Smith mountain farm
Galten Farm has been open to visitors since the 1800s, and it is currently run by the fifth generation of the same family. The farm has been a natural meeting point for anglers since the lawyer-brothers Smith from London visited at the beginning of the last century. It has been popular among fly-fishing enthusiasts for generations. Galten Farm offers accommodation in comfortable cabins and flats, and rooms in the main building are also available.
This well-preserved farm dating back to the 1600s is located by the foot of Rondane, close to Folldal. Stay the night in one of the old farm buildings, and enjoy traditional Norwegian farm food. Old-style techniques are used at the farm, which has horses, sheep, dog and cats. This is an ideal location for walks or horseback riding, and horse and sleigh rides are available during winter.
