The farm Remmem Gard as seen from the south.

Welcome to Remmem Gard

The farm Remmem Gard today offers accommodation and rental in the warmer months of the year. The farm buildings consist of a 25-metre long main building, a "stabbur" (a traditional Norwegian storehouse), a smaller ”kårhus” (traditionally in Norway, a house for the grandparents), two large barns with cow stalls and a reconstructed “årestue” (open hearth building) from the Middle Ages/Viking period where arrangements can take place.

After many years of renovation, Remmem Gard can now offer two fully equipped apartments including kitchen and bathroom for 8-9 guests. The apartments are situated in a separate part of the main house and have individual entrances, with 5 bedrooms in total. In addition to the apartments, we have a new "stabbur" with 3 single rooms, a bathroom and a small kitchen area. In their restoration work Olga and Geir have endeavoured to keep the old genuine rustic style of the original, while at the same time offering the modern conveniences that people expect today.

Guests have their own south-facing terrace both in front of the apartments and the "stabbur", and are free to use the outside grounds, which include a large lawn between the house and the river with its outside fireplace. The farm lies peacefully situated 500 metres from the main road and railway, on the farther side of the Rauma river.

Here the constant noise of cars is replaced by the soothing sounds of the river.

Activities

Romsdalseggen Ridge

One of Norway's most spectacular hiking trips is only 20 minutes away from us by car. The trip takes you through Norway's most exciting nature and sceneries, with views that will leave even the most experienced hikers breathless. The hike takes you over mountains overlooking fjords, summits and waterfalls. Read more about this hike at Visitnorway.com.

Årestue (open hearth building)

This is a grand timber building from 1850 which has been reconstructed as an open hearth building from the Middle Ages/Viking period. Many wonderful evenings have been spent here in the light of the flickering fire (åren), candles and torches. Comfortable seating is provided by the timber benches covered with sheepskin formed in a half circle around the hearth. Click here for more info.

Excursions

Remmem lies right in the middle of the valley Romsdalen, and tourist attractions are surprisingly easy to come across. The mountain attractions Trollveggen and Trollstigen are few kilometres away, and the Atlantic Ocean Road, the waterfall Mardalsfossen, Geiranger and the Atlantic Sea-Park are well suited for day trips by car.

Salmon fishing

The farm is situated about twenty kilometres up the river Rauma from the mouth of the river, and has a 2,2 km private stretch of salmon river which varies from broad calm waters to deep pools and difficult rapids. Fish are to be caught in this part of the river from the end of June/beginning of July to the 31. August, and in the very uppermost stretch, until the 15. September. Because of an infection by the parasite Gyrodactylus Salaris, the river is temporarily closed for fishing. Read more.
