A lovely place full of Norwegian folk tale charm, where you can follow the paths of Peer Gynt and Kristin Lavransdatter (on nicely groomed ski trails). Charming old (ours--1792!) but very comfortable cabins, and friendly, helpful hosts--both of whom have lived in the U.S.--both excellent cooks. The food is beautifully presented and prepared local and regional dishes--delicious! Skiing: great! Wood fired sauna: hot! Sleeping, listening to the howling wind: sweeps you away to a fairytale time in a faraway place. We're already planning a return, and bringing friends next time.
