Courses, conferences and group activities at Åstjern cottage resort
Åstjern cottage resort enjoys an idyllic setting 575 metres above sea level in Hadelandsåsen in the Brandbu area. It is a perfect starting point for active nature adventures. Take a look at the activity suggestions below or contact us for a tailor-made package for you and your group.
We can organise a bespoke conference programme for you and your company. You will be served good, homemade local food. Meetings are held in the school house, and afterwards you can relax in pleasant, intimate surroundings in Åstjernstua. The conference package can be combined with one or several activities.
Taster course in dog-team driving
An introduction to dog-team driving for groups, where everyone is taken on a short ride in a dog sled. The course starts with a brief visit to the kennel to meet the dogs and listen to a short talk on dog-team driving. Then we light a camp fire and serve hot drinks by the lake. Everyone gets a ride in the dog sled. The duration of the course is about two and a half hours, depending on the size of the group.
Talk and kennel visit
Gain an insight into the mysteries of dog-team driving. There will be a lecture on dog-sledding in the school house, accompanied by hot drinks and homemade biscuits. Afterwards, we pay a visit to the kennel to meet the sled dogs.
Dog-sledding weekend with good food and friendly hosts
We can arrange an entire weekend filled with dog-team driving and outdoor adventures for adults and children. We can tailor the packages to suit your wishes. Join us for a weekend of fur and paws! All meals are included.
“Escape from Åstjern”
We can arrange a fun and slightly challenging nature trail for teams that compete against each other. The trail involves physical activities, but it is not extremely demanding. It requires team work and will create a lot of fun and laughter.
Clay pigeon shooting
There is a range near the resort, and we can arrange clay pigeon shooting as an activity for groups. This activity needs to be booked far in advance.
We cooperate with the rental company Lavvoutleie.no about erecting “lavvo” tents inside or outside the resort. A lavvo creates a unique ambience for an event and is suitable for functions or gatherings of more than 40 people.
Øyvind Celius has played his music at various events for years. He can help create the good feelings that will lift the mood of any party.
