Norway’s nature enchants with its beauty, especially in winter. The region around Jotunheimen National Park with its vast tablelands and bizarre, bold rolling mountain ranges offers unlimited fun for those who fancy outdoor activities. To enjoy the winter in peace and quiet, to feel safe in the pristine, white-sparkling landscape – all this makes snowshoeing so attractive.
Hindsæter has well marked trails in the wilderness, for everyone. Experience fresh mountain air and a silence rarely found in Europe and meet one of the largest forest animals, the elk. In February and March there is a good chance to see them. You can also look forward to a ice hike through the Sjoa Gorge, sledging fun and the daily sauna session.

The small historic Hindsæter Hotel, built in 1898, has a stunning view over the valley and Jotunheimen National Park. Hindsæter is a relaxing getaway, with exceptional opportunities right at the doorste. We also promise you some extraordinary food experiences. Since 2010 the hotel restaurant is listed by Innovation Norway as a good place to eat local food.

This is simply a week of pure enjoyment.
