dnt CABINS

Check UT.no for current practice for the cabin


Through the pandemic, DNT has had bookings as a requirement for accommodation in the cabins. Now that restrictions from the authorities have been removed, DNT is also removing the requirement to order. Some cabins that are not part of a route network have a booking of an entire cabin. They also had this before the pandemic. Most cabins located in the mountains and in a cabin-to-cabin network will have the option of booking a bed or a room. Should you come as "a drop in guest" to a cabin in the mountains where all the beds are occupied, it will be possible to sleep on a mattress on the floor. 

Contact the member association that runs the relevant cabin if you have any questions.


NB: Do not go to a cabin until you have checked UT.no

Note that some cabins would also be closed in a normal year, partly as a result of wild reindeer calving. They will therefore not be opened until this period is over. This is specified on UT.no at the cabins in question. Opening hours for each cabin are adapted to local conditions, some are located on the coast and others are located on the high mountains.

RULES FOR CABIN VISITS:

  • Stay home if you feel sick.
  • Continue to wash your hands thoroughly. If you do not have access to hot water and soap, use rubbing alcohol.
  • Use a paper handkerchief. If you do not have access to this, it is best to cough in the elbow hook.
  • This is how we take care of the most vulnerable among us.

ACTIVITIES and tours

Activities and tours are made in accordance with the authorities' guidelines. The goal is that all trips and activities should be safe, and that participants and tour guides should receive good information in advance. In addition, routines have been established for what the tour guide and participant should do if they feel ill on the tour.

RULES FOR ACTIVITY:


  • Stay home if you feel sick or if you are in quarantine.
  • Continue to wash your hands thoroughly. If you do not have access to hot water and soap, use rubbing alcohol.
  • Use a paper handkerchief. If you do not have access to this, it is best to cough in the elbow hook.
  • This is how we take care of the most vulnerable among us!
