COMMENTS FROM OWNER GUESTBOOK

We have had a great time staying in hytte 11 in Vradal Hyttegrend for 2 weeks. Are already looking forward to our next stay. No need to get bored with such beautiful nature and all that fire-wood for the fireplace around. The weather really helped to make this a holiday to remember. See you next time Hans!
Patricia Klijn, Netherlands
Many thanks Hans. Our stay in September 2004 was a wonderfully relaxed and enjoyable interlude. We loved the exceptional facilities and the siting of the hytte which gave us fantastic views of the lake and Haegefjell as well as access to walks and drives. Best regards Bill & Jean, your first Aussies. Jean & Bill True Embleton [Perth]
We've spent one week in January 2003 and one week in December 2003 in Vradal. It was a wonderful time...I think we'll join your 'hyttegrend' again in summer. Bye and see you again. Kathrin, Beate, Olaf, Clemen

HYTTEGREND IN AUGUST

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week in August in one of the hyttes. The owner, Hans was very helpful and knowledgable about the area and the wildlife. The hytte was very spacious and clean - we were a family of 4 but there was room for at least 8 people. We took advantage of hiring linen & towels as we were travelling by plane & hired a car at Torp. There was a beautiful view over the lake and we witnessed a different type of sunset each night. There were also row boats for hire and Hans kindly mended one of his canoes so we could use it. We explored the lake and all the local islands - they were idyllic settings that we had to ourselves. One tip would be to book in the last 2 weeks of August - as the Norwegian schools have gone back by then - so it is quieter & cheaper!

HYTTE NO.1, FEB 2008

  • 5 of 5
THe hytte was clean, comfortable, spacious and had everything you need. Stunning views over the lake, very friendly and helpful host if you need any help or advice. Expensive eating out, but if you can bear to feed yourselves, it's well worth going here for the scenery. Local skiing was excellent, as was local hospital!!! (Children 0-6 get free ski passes and free helmet hire for children). This hytte was very good value for money. Would like to return here for the summer experience. Easy driving with the winter tyres (Budget car hire). Our party was 2 small children, 3 adults, one over 55. All had loads of fun. Lots of free wood for the stove. One of the best holidays we've had in years. Thank you Hans.
