Gomobu

Gomobu Fjellstue is a charming mountain lodge, situated in Vaset, in the mountains of Valdres. It offers comfortable rooms in huts and in the main building, and lots of activities to do in the area. It offers excellent food (breakfast, lunch and dinner), perfect for active people who are discovering the area. During summer you can go hiking, cycling, kayaking and horse back riding, and in the winter you can go cross country skiing, snow shoeing or walk over to the alpine ski lifts to spend some days in the alpine ski slopes.

Activities:

Traditional Cross Country Skiing

Cross country skiing, or Nordic skiing, is increasingly becoming a popular activity in many places around the world. It’s a wonderful way to explore winter landscapes, as well as a pleasant full body work-out. Skiing on prepped slopes, Nordic skiing gives you more or less the same flexibility to travel as hiking ( more fun in downhills!), and the very nature of the activity allows you to move at your own pace. Norwegians have used traditional skiis as a mode of transportation and for recreational purposes during winter for centuries. There is even an old saying, “Norwegians are born with skis on the their feet”, which essentially means that cross country skiing is second nature to most Norwegians, and comes as easy to us as walking.

Snowshoeing

With this interesting footwear you can walk on snow ( instead of falling straight through it as one normally would), and allows you to discover the area by foot.

Life around Gomobu, Vaset

Vaset is a very popular destination and a typical Norwegian mountain area; in the area you will find old farms (with and without farm animals), and alpine ski lifts and slopes. It also has a has a couple of lovely cafés and restaurants. There are endless tour options, and can offer something for everyone!

Relaxing Scenic Bus Ride
