The Dyranut Tourist Lodge

Midt på Hardangervidda finner vi den gamle turisthytten: ‘Dyranut’. Jo, den ser veldig ny ut, men opprinnelig ble ‘Dyranut’ bygget i 1934, men senere modernisert og bygget ut en rekke ganger! Dette er også veiene høyeste punkt mellom Øst og Vest på 1246 m.o.h.
Herfra og vestover er det for det meste ‘nedoverbakke’!

In the middle of the Hardanger Plains, we find the old tourist cabin: ‘Dyranut’. Yes, it looks very new, but originally ‘Dyranut’ was built in 1934, but later modernized and expanded a number of times! With a height of 1246 m.o.h. this is also the highest point on the road between East and West!
‘Dyranut’ har idag overnattingsplasser for 35 mennesker, men kan bespise ca 60!
‘Dyranut’ of today has bedding capacity for 35 people but may handle up to 60 people in its cafeterias.
Fra den andre siden av veien holder ‘Dyranut-trollet’ oppsyn med eiendommen og terrenget rundt! Jeg hadde vondt for å finne en dokumentasjon på høyden av dette trollet, men forsiktig beregnet til noe rundt 4 meter?

From the other side of the road, The Dyranut Troll is supervising the property and the surrounding area! I was not able to find a definite height of this ‘troll’ but carefully estimate it to something like 11 feet?
Her et av de nye byggene!
Here one of the newer buildings!
Et panoramabilde tatt mot VSV! Når det kan virke litt ‘flatt’, så er det fordi vi nå befinner oss på ‘taket’ av Hardangervidda og at terrenget herfra heller ned mot Vestkysten av landet.

A panorama shot towards WSW! If it looks a bit flat, It is probably because we are on the very top of the Hardanger Plains and from here om the terrain will fall gradually downwards  as we approach the Western coast of our country.
Hvis du lurer litt på hvordan det ser ut på innsiden, så tillot jeg meg å ta noen interiørbilder som kan gi deg et slags svar på dette.

If you are wondering how it looks inside, I allowed myself to shoot a couple of pictures from the interior that would give some answers to this question.

Og mens jeg husker det: Sesongen er veldig kort her oppe. Sesongen avsluttes 16. August!
Jeg kom tilfeldigvis innom på den 14de!

And whilst I remember: The season up here is very short! The season – at least this year – is terminated 0n Aug, 16th!   I was fortunate enough to visit on the 14th!

    Lucky you just got there in time. All your pictures are such a delight and the countryside looks so amazing. Beautiful to walk and surely such clean air.

  2. Seenorway says:

    That is why I shared only one picture with traffic 🙂 but the road doesn’t allow for much more than you see!

    This interior and exterior are so utterly Norwegian! 🙂 🙂

  4. Not many customers inside? But you perhaps you told them to leave the building before picture taking?

    The interior resembles some of the pubs in Blue Ridge and in Helen, Ga.

      He he, maybe with 3rd or 4th gen. Norwegian owners? 🙂

      • -Eugenia says:

        Well, Helen, Ga is a Bavarian Alps replica town in the Appalachians. The entire town has the architecture and look of German villages. We went there frequently (an hour away from where we live) before the virus. Blue Ridge is a mountain town and many of the businesses have a rustic look. I am glad to see these little towns have not grown into bustling cities, at least not yet.

  6. Thank you for sharing your journey. All the best! Cheryl
