Practical information

About Geiterygghytta

Geiterygghytta is known as the pearl of Skarvheimen and is one of the main gate to the magnificent Aurlandsdalen. The well-known and historic Aurlandsdalen Valley, was once one of the main routes between the eastern and western parts of Norway. The area known as Norway's Grand Canyon, is wild and breathtaking, rich in plant and animal life, cultural treasures, history and geological features.

 The lodge has totally 88 beds. A few two- and four-bunk rooms in the main hut, and 44 bunks in a dormitory annex. Both the main hut and the annex has toilets, showers and drying room.

We have a few room for dog and owner, and we have plenty of cages where the dog can sleep in a seperate room.

At the hut you wil be served a delicious three course supper, breakfast and you can make your own lunch bag.

Train and bus

The lodge is easily accessible by train to Ål on the Bergen line, and from there by bus to the eastern side of the Geiterygg tunnel. The bus schedules are coordinated to match the eastbound and westbound train schedules, so there's little waiting at Ål.

At Easter, there's a daily bus from Ål to the western end of the Geiterygg tunnel. From the bus there's a 5 km staked route to the lodge. Over snow transport of people or baggage may be booked with the lodge warden.
