Welcome to Sandhaug

Sandhaug is located in what is probably the closest you will ever come to the center of Hardangervidda. Suitable terrain for young and old makes it the ideal lodge for hiking in the area. In this magnificent area of mountains, with a near perfect view of the nature around, you might experience a seldom found feeling of peace. With Hårteigen to the west, Gaustatoppen to the southeast and Hardangerjøkulen to the north, the horizon will always be crowded with the striking Norwegian nature.
