For those who wish to get close to nature and stay in more rural and scenic areas, cabins or ‘hytter’ is the perfect choice.
These small, simple wooden houses are scattered around most of the country and most of those available to tourists are operated and owned by the Norwegian Trekking Association (Den Norske Turistforening).
They offer rooms/beds at reduced rates for children and young persons (under 26). They also offer family discounts. The prices differ quite a lot for association members and non-members. For those who wish to spend some time in the mountains/ trails, it might be a good idea to pay the membership fee to obtain the reduced prices.
You will find a list of all the prices for membership and beds/rooms here:http://www2.turistforeningen.no/files/DNT-Oslo/PriserEngelsk2013_print.pdf
You can also find information on the locations of the cabins and trails here:
The trekking association also has camp-sites where you can stay in your own tent or rent one for a small fee. See more information on this and specific prices on the web site mentioned above.
