Sygard Grytting is an old farm estate, today functioning as a hotel. Coal pits, rich grave findings dating back to the 4th century, and Viking burial grounds suggests early settlement and powerful families living in the area. Today's owner Stig Grytting is the 16th generation running the farm. It has been the Grytting’s property at least since 1534, but most likely longer and probably as far back as the 14th century.

Besides the hotel, the site has a medieval attic which is used as a hostel for pilgrims en route to Nidaros – today as well as in late medieval times. The attic is listed and was built in 1300, with small modifications made in 1780. The attic has 20 beds and is furnished in the original way. The guests sleep in their own sleeping bag together with the hostel's sheepskin rug (or rent linen). The attic has a bathroom with shower/wc.

Breakfast and dinner, or "mårraverd" and "nattverd", is served at "Gildestugu". You can either enjoy their delicious three course dinner or their pilgrim soup. It is recommended to preorder food.

A newly restored building, "Fantstugu" offers accommodation in addition to the medieval hostel. Here you'll find a self-catering kitchen, a sauna/drying room, shower/WC and an additional shower. It accommodates up to 5 people.
Outside the high season it's advisable to call before arrival, so there are people to receive you.

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.
