Welcome to Aaraas Farm!
The old timber building from 1910 is completely renovated. It is situated on Aaraas farm, close to the pilgrim route that crosses Nittelva (Nittedal river). The place is well suited for overnight stay after the first day’s march out of Oslo. The pilgrim route continues past Ramstad and through a beautiful natural landscape leading to Skedsmokorset.
Aaraas farm pilgrim hostel is located by the river Nitelva. During the summer season, from June 1 to September 1 (and otherwise by appointment), we offer accommodation for pilgrims. The pilgrim hostel is a day march away from Oslo, and is a nice stop for those who walk the Gudbrandsdalsleden (Østleden), on the east side of Lake Mjøsa.
Tip: When you come to Hellerud and Hellerudsletta, cross Riksvei 22 and follow Kragerudveien straight ahead, walk over the bridge (Åros bru) and you will see Aaraas farm 200 meters up to the left.
In 2021, we will only accept guests in the hostel who travel individually or together in small groups (cohorts). Those who order first get a place. We also have a separate tent area for those who want to camp, and we have upgraded the offer with “Solstua”, a living room and kitchen for those who bring their own food. Pilgrims who camp on Aaraas farm use their own bathroom / toilet (also new in 2021) which is located by “Solstua.
