The near thousand-year old tradition of providing shelter to wanderers lives on at historical Fokstugu

The origin of Fokstugu Mountain Lodge dates back to King Eystein Magnusson around 1120, when he initiated the building of simple shelters to accommodate pilgrims on their way to St. Olav's grave in Nidaros. The site has been hostel for travelers and walkers since then. Today the main industry here is sheep farming, and with a location at 1000 meters, in the middle of Mount Dovre's National Parks, it is the highest year-round farm in Norway.

Guests stay at Fjellstuen from the 1880s. Bedrooms in traditional norwegian style with comfortable beds. Shared shower/wc. Well equipped kitchen, dining room and old fashioned living room with fireplace.

All summer pilgrim prayers are held in Fokstugu's consecrated Chapel, Guds Huset (God's House)", with liturgy of the Nidaros Cathedral. Every day: Laudes 8 am. Completorium 8.30 pm.

This hostel is accredited and recommended by the National Pilgrim Centre. It has met the same requirements, and holds the same standard, as the pilgrim accommodation along Camino de Santiago and Via Francigena.
