An impressive calm emanates from the frozen lake. If you are prepared to shovel a little snow, then you have a private skating rink there by your door (so don’t forget your skates!) For a vigorous hike, you need only enter the woods behind the house. In that direction, it’s a mere 17.3 kilometres till you stumble across the next house. There are no trails so you will need a pair of sturdy shoes – and its advisable to carry a compass and detailed map (both available from the house).
By dog sled
From the countless tracks in the snow that you’ll find left behind by elk, deer and foxes, among others, you’ll soon understand that this is place with abundant wildlife – wildlife that usually emerges around dusk. And especially on the edges of clearings in the forest.
Would you prefer to by pulled through the wintry woods on a dog sleigh pulled by a team of sled dogs? Just 15 minutes away from our house, near Lysvik, that is possible at Mooneye Sleddogs Tours. For information
Bungalow Tillsammans is situated between the two most attractive ski areas in the area bordering Norway: Hovfjället and Ski-Sunne, both about a 25-minute drive from the house.
This beautiful ski centre is preferred by most people. It’s just ten minutes north of Torsby. There are 15 Alpine slopes and six lifts. The longest alpine trail is around 2 kilometres long. There are two lighted evening trails. In addition, there’s a children’s slope, a ski school, and at the top, a restaurant and a ski shop for renting high quality ski equipment.
The house has a wide covered veranda on the front. At the back, there’s an open terrace of about 30 square metres. There’s a carport and a wood shed with an ample supply of birch firewood. And naturally, for the kids, 3 sleds.
All rooms have electric heating with digital thermostats. To conserve energy, the house is also heated by means of a heat pump. And then of course there’s the fireplace. The bathroom next to the sauna has floor heating. The house is equipped with two completely independent hot water heaters.
