The two houses the nuns lived in while the new monastery was being built, are now used as a guesthouse. The nuns sing the Liturgy of the Hours 7 times a day and earn their living by producing herbal soaps, balsam and skin creams. A visitor’s center with an exhibit on Cistercian life and the monastery shop is open every week day during the summer season.

We offer accommodation in the guesthouse if there is space and the guesthouse is open. Pilgrims should report arrival - preferably the day before as we do not always have room. This can be done at phone 74 80 85 51 in the time at 10.00 - 12.00 or kl. 15.00 - 17.00. Alternatively, you can send an SMS to 406 72 655.

Pilgrims must arrive before 19:00 (doorbell at the door to the left of the church) and it must be quiet in the houses after 20.30. Guests can use the shower on the ground floor and prepare supper and breakfast in the kitchen. We celebrate Catholic Mass at 08.10 on weekdays and at 09.00 on Sundays. Our masses and time prayers are open to everyone. Pilgrims must check out by 12 noon the next day, but can attend dinner prayer at 12.15. When using bed linen, please change bed linen for the next guest. See also the website.

The price for one night is NOK. 200,- for bed and shower and use of kitchen. Supper and breakfast by request in advance costs NOK 200,-

In high season, the guesthouse is often full, and we can not offer dinner, but you can buy dinner at Klostergården 2 km walk from the monastery.
