This magnificent place always gives you a surprise, one way or another. We had a perfect stay at the cabin, lovely service and 3 seasons of changing weather.

This is a nice cafe with lots of seats, but the prices are high. And they probably should be. Considering the effort to get the goods up here. Of course they use the train inside the mountain, but still there's some stairs and lots of...More

We went up the mountain with the train, and had coffee and tea in the hytte. The waffles were still warm and tasted good. The tables were not cleaned. The view is absolutely great.

The waffels at this mountain hut on the top of Gaustatoppen are very nice. The personell is friendly and gave us some tips regarding the way down.

Tradtional Norwegian wooden interior, waffles, coffee and hot cocoa, would have been a great view if the weather was clear. The train inside the mountain is recommended.
