unattended DNT lodge with overnight and day trip possibilities.
It may be reminiscent of the Mummi House and the tower of Tobias, but the Haukenestower in Rømskog is none of the parts.
Take the starting point at Rømskog Spa & Resort, marked path from the hotel and they also have maps. The 12-meter-high wooden building was built as a fire tower and used as this until 1975, when the guard stopped. The landowner took over the tower and maintained it for many years, until the municipality and then DNT Indre Østfold took it over. The Haukenestower is Norway's only preserved fire tower in the woods and roughs in the spruce forest. And here it is actually possible to spend the night, enjoy the tranquility and tranquility of the forest, and the view all the way to Gaustatoppen on a clear autumn day. If there is fog, the atmosphere is magical and adventurous. You don't sleep higher in Østfold! The Haukenstower is a great destination for families with children, or as a romantic place for couples.
There are few marked trails in the area, yet there are plenty of hiking opportunities for, among other things. Pea water, Eikestad and Kattebuheia.
