OUR CABINS AND ROUTES
As a DNT member, you receive a discount at 500 cabins, 25 of which are in the fantastic mountains covered by the Bergen and Hordaland Trekking Association's area in Western Norway.
Bergen and Hordaland Trekking Association has self-service and no-service cabins that range from small, simple cabins way up in the mountains to spacious, child-friendly cabins that are relatively easy to get to. We also have cabins for rent by groups and school classes.
The self-service cabins have fully-equipped kitchens, bedrooms, living areas, provisions, gas and logs. The no-service cabins have the same standard and facilities as the self-service cabins, with one important exception: there are no provisions!
The following cabins are staffed during summer 2017: Breidablikk, Hadlaskard, Hallingskeid, Selhamar, Skålabu and Stavali.
The T-marked trail network offers an infinite number of trekking options. Below are all the areas where we have cabins.
