About Segestad Mountain Farm

The Segestad Mountain Farm has an idyllic location overlooking Oppstrynsvatnet Lake. A short, steep hike brings you to the farm, perched on a clearing at the mouth of the Glomsdalen Valley, 300 meters above the lake. The views of the lake and surrounding mountains from this peaceful viewpoint simply stunning. Pack a picnic to enjoy at the farm while you soak in the landscape.
