A stunning dayhike this Sunday to the abandoned mountain farm of Dyrskog. This farm had it´s own episode on the Norwegian television series “Where no one would believe anyone could live”. As it had been a few years since I took this hike last I decided to take advantage of the fabulous weather this Sunday and set off from the house after lunch. 45 minutes driving later and I reached the parking lot.
I was lucky to meet the new owner of this farm whose family is to use this as a holiday/weekend retreat resort. With no electricity and water from the nearby creek, they certainly have their work cut out for them going ahead.
The hike took appx. 6 hours roundtrip with a good rest at the farm.
This hike is not too difficult and offers stunning views from the Marsteinfjellet mountain down on the Ørsdalsvannet lake. This lake looks more like a fjord to be honest, with its steep surrounding mountains sloping down into the sea.
