The home front cabin in Totenåsen
The home front cabin was built in Skreia in the autumn of 1944 by the Norwegian resistance. It enjoys a lofty location on the Torseterkampen mountain, 856 metres above sea level. The cabin could house up to 20 men. It burnt down in 2009. Mjøsmuseet has built a copy of the cabin, which was completed in 2012. The home front cabin is managed by Mjøsmuseet.
The cabin can be used for day trips, but we regret that overnight stays are not permitted. The woodstove can be used. Please leave the cabin in the state you would like to find it.
The key for the cabin can be collected from Rausteinshytta (winter), Torsætra and Mjøsmuseet’s documentation centre at Kapp Melkefabrikk.
It costs NOK 30 to borrow the key. Loss of the key will incur a compensation payment of NOK 300.
Please return the key to the place where you collected it. At Torsætra, it can be placed in the mailbox. If you are unable to return the key during opening hours, you can return it to Mjøsmuseet’s documentation centre at Kapp Melkefabrikk.
Hognsætra is a good starting point for a walk to the home front cabin (Approx. 1–1.5 hours).
