The near thousand-year old tradition of providing shelter to wanderers is still alive here at Fokstugo

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 a hostel for travelers and hikers since then. Today the main industry here is sheep farming, and with a location at 1000 m.a.s.l., in the middle of Dovrefjell National Park, it is the highest altitude full time farm in Norway.

Guests can stay in Fjellstuen from the 1880s. Bedrooms in traditional norwegian style with comfortable beds. Shared shower/bathroom. Well equipped kitchen, dining room and an 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.
