Woman unlocking a DNT-cabin with the DNT-key

The DNT-key

The Norwegian Trekking Association (DNT) key is a unique system designed to grant hikers access to over 570 cabins scattered across Norway's vast wilderness. The DNT key system facilitates a seamless outdoor experience, allowing adventurers to explore the breathtaking Norwegian landscapes with the assurance of a cozy place to rest. To use the DNT cabins, members of the norwegian trekking association, simply obtain a universal key, which unlocks the doors to most of our cabins.

Borrowing a DNT-key
