At Husbakken you are surrounded by beautiful nature. We know where to spot the eagle or the deer. We know where you will find wild berries. We know where the fish may bite. We know where you’ll be guaranteed to have a small lake all by yourselves. We know about great rocks to climb in solitude. And we can take you to the spots below, and make you familiar with the wilderness:
