Ryphusan or Ryphussæteren is a mountain barn rebuilt to accommodate pilgrims, and one of the most distinctive accommodations on the pilgrim route.

After passing the highest point of the St. Olav Ways, you walk down in a lovely pastoral valley - Vinstradalen. Ryphusan is the innermost farms in the valley and there are three farms in Oppdal which have seats here. Vinstradalen is a parallel side valley to Drivdalen, where E-6 and the railway passes. The valley is V-shaped with a canyon bottom. The area has a rich flora and interesting geology.

Ryphusa does not have a booking. Here, the "first come, first served" principle applies. The cottage has 8 beds on brisk, as well as 2 extra mattresses. A tent with 4 camp beds are also available. It is important to note that the cottage is unattended. Everyone must bring their own sleeping bag and their own pillowcase.

Groceries can be purchased at the cottage from a separate grocery store. It contains, among other things, canned dinner dishes, cold cuts, crispbread, oatmeal etc.

Payment for accommodation and food can be made in cash on site in a separate box, by Paypal or Vipps. Giro with info is posted in the cabin.

As the cabin is located far to the mountains (and is unattended), we want it to be reserved for individual hikers. We therefore ask commercial / organized groups to use the next alternatives for accommodations. See Information about transport.
