RENTAL OF HOLIDAY CABINS (“HYTTE”)

Norwegians live the outdoor life to the full in summer by the fjords on boats and in winter skiing in the mountains. Many Norwegian families have a hytte, a cabin in the mountains to which they escape for weekends and holidays. There are hytter available to rent all over the country all year round. The standard ranges from very rustic (no running water, outside toilet,) to quite luxurious (modern fitted kitchen, satellite TV, Jacuzzi).
