1. Stay at a remote cabin for a night or two

Related Story: Outdoor Adventures in Vang →

Vang is pretty remote and what is better than taking in all that remoteness by staying a night in one of Vang’s many remote mountain cabins. They are all accessible by marked trails both in the summertime and in the wintertime.


Originally Yksendalsbu was an old cabin used by the sheep shepherds in the area. Today, you are still able to sleep in the old cabin, but there is also a newer one built at the same site. The cabin is situated in the Yksendal valley and is surrounded by beautiful mountains.

Easy, high-mountain terrain surrounds Slettningsbu and you can start off the trip to the cabin from north, south, and west. The cabin is simple but cozy and welcomes fewer visitors during the winter.
