This is a campsite just south of Hjelle by Øvre Årdal.
Burnt down in June 2001 but has since been rebuilt. It is situated beside a collection of old seter buildings on a high forested plateau above the Vettisfossen waterfall.
One of DNT’s flagship lodges. Well sited on a flat clearing in the birch forest overlooking Utladalen and Hurrungane, it is at the hub of a web of walking tracks in the summer and skiing trails in the spring.
|Vormeli Farm Cabin
A remarkable restored farm deep in the lush fertile depths of Utladalen.
It is a DNT flagship and is the main gate to southern Jotunheimen in both the summer walking season and the spring ski-touring season.
A huge old rambling building which has seen very much better days. It is closed to the public now and seems only to be used occasionally for groups.
Once a very distinguished hotel in its historic hey-day. However the whole hotel tragically burnt to the ground but has been rebuilt in a format consisting of 10 very comfortable and traditional 3 bedroom log cabins which surround a main reception building which has a restaurant and spacious lounge.
