About Bjåen Fjellstove Mountain Lodge

Bjåen Fjellstove is a certified Norwegian ecotourism company and incorporates local food, history and culture into its operation in a sustainable way.

Bjåen Fjellstove is a step into history. You can still see the original timbers of the walls, floor and ceiling. The staircase is worn from the footsteps of guests who came long before you, and you can feel the floor shift with the weight of time.
