Spiterstulen Turisthytte is a privately owned mountain lodge located in the lovely Visdalen valley between Norways’s two highest mountains, Galdhøpiggen and Glittertind. It is a fantastic place for ski touring/back country skiing: with Spiterstulen as a base you can climb seventeen of the highest mountains in Norway.
Spiterstulen was originally a place for summer pasture farming under the Nigard Sulheim farm. The mountains provided green pastures and nutritious grazing for the farm animals; for the Sulheim family the summer was a busy season with milking, butter production and cheese making from dawn to dusk. Spiterstulen slowly and gradually transformed into a tourism business with summer farming ending in 1968.
Spiterstulen offers accommodation in a wide range of rooms located in seven different buildings, large and small. Around 15 rooms have an ensuite bathroom. The common areas are spacious with large windows and an open fireplace. We have a big terrace perfect for those sunny spring afternoons. We serve dinner and breakfast and a range of alchoholic and non-alchoholic beverages. Snacks and chocolate are for sale in the reception.
