Welcome to Åmotsdalen Gard, 17 km from Oppdal center at the foot of beautiful Dovrefjell. The unique mountain farm is located in the heart of the valley surrounded by fantastic nature and wildlife. The mill dates back to the 1620s and consists of 13 buildings. We live here all year round and want more people to visit us and experience what we have to offer.
With us, you can experience one of Norway's roughest Ziplines (open from May to October), and spend the night in one of our two rental houses that we rent out all year round. In summer you can experience old-fashioned farming, great mountain hikes from right outside the cottage or fishing for trout in the river.
Our small farm café is open during the school holidays. Here we offer simple dining such as coffee, tea, mineral water and home baking.
Zip line: The journey starts up the hill, it is about 300 m to walk from the farmyard. If you like speed and excitement, you get an unforgettable experience, at the highest point you rise about 100 m above the ground. Annual control and education / training of instructors is required, so here you are in safe hands. This is really fun!
We have two rental units: Snekkerstua and Drengstua. These can be rented all year round. Snekkerstua has 4 beds and Drengstua ml- 4-6 pers. Both living rooms are located in the yard.
In Åmotsdalen you will find fantastic hiking opportunities, both for small and large, summer and winter. We are so lucky to have Storskrymten walking club that has arranged signage, benches and fire pits in the Dalen. Here are great picnic areas with opportunities for camping.
The suspension bridge is especially for the little ones and it is like entering a fairytale forest a small kilometer from the farm.
Winter is wonderful with us. Here there is no congestion or groomed tracks and the trip goes in beautiful untouched nature. For those who want longer trips, there are many who start here and go towards Dindalen or inwards towards Dovre-Åmotsdalshytta and further in.
If you prefer cycling, it is also nice to experience the area based on the farm.
We also accept groups and teams, be it kick off with companies, birthday celebrations, bachelorette parties. Then we tailor a package that is just right for you. (Zipline, toys / activities, dining, grilling, accommodation, guiding in the yard or in the Dalen)
