Welcome to Besso

Besso - the adventure

Besso tourist lodge is located on Nordmann River, in the middle of Hardangervidda National Park.

Besso was built in 1934 and is a traditional mountain lodge, known for its good food and friendly hosts.

During the summer and autumn you can experience traditional mountain farming, hunting and fishing, in a fabulous landscape with traces back to the Stone Age.

In winter the landscape is transformed into endless white plains – and remains equally adventurous. One can experience everything from sun and cloudless skies to gale and dense blizzards.

Hardangervidda provides everything nature has to offer! On this page you will find information about this wonderful place in the middle of Hardangervidda.
