Fanteselen is a one-room apartment with six beds and “Simple Living” standard. Clean and perfect for nature experiences. A great area for biking, hiking, canoeing, and fishing. The price includes a canoe for your use. Fantesalen is a wonderful nature spot where moose and deer can be seen grazing often outside the cabin window. The cabin is built and used primarily as a hunting lodge and carries the mark of simple and practical use.

The space
The area is quiet, with only a few people in the neighborhood. My family has a house a few hundred meters away, but it is in little use during the summer. The closest neighbors are very nice people and live at the disused railway station about 600 meters away. The nearest village with convenient shops is Drangedal, which is 15 kilometers away.

There are beautiful cycling and hiking routes nearby, and it is a perfect place for fishing and canoeing.

The area has an abundance of wildlife and there is a good chance to spot both beavers and moose. The best time of the day to spot these animals are in the morning and late evenings. We recommend paddling the canoe in the evening to spot the animals at the water's edge. We also recommend taking your car and drive along the many gravel roads on a private “Moose Safari.”

Three kilometers from the cabin, there is a World War II memorial where a Mosquito airplane was shot down and crashed during the bombing of Porsgrunn in 1945. The remains of the aircraft are still at the crash site along with a memorial plaque. The site is close to the road and is accessible by car, foot or bicycle.

We can also recommend “The Telemark Canal,” “The Troll Car,” and other historical sites only 15-30 minutes' drive from the cabin. You can find additional information in the tourist information folder provided in the cabin.

Less than one hour to the south, you will find Kragerø, a gem on Norway’s coastline and less than one hour to the north, you have the children's favorite: “Sommerland” Norway’s largest waterpark.

The UNESCO heritage site of Rjukan is less than two hours away. Here you will also find the famous Gaustadtoppen mountain with its amazing views.

Where you’ll be

Drangedal, Telemark, Norway

Stedet ligger plassert mellom Lunde og Drangedal og er et flott utgangspunkt for sykkelturer, toppturer eller padleturer. Området er stedet for dem som liker friluftsliv, med det er også kort vei til andre store attraksjoner i nærområdet som f.eks. Sommerland i Bø, Troll-bilen, Telemarkskanalen eller Kragerø.

Om kveldene ser man ofte elg og hjort beite på jordet utenfor vinduene. Vi anbefaler å ta kanoene eller bilen for å dra på "elg og beversafari" om kvelden. Det anbefales også å besøke minnesmerket med restene av et flyvrak fra 2. verdenskrig ligger kun 3 kilometer fra boligen.

Det går en merket sykkel sykkelrute rett utenfor boligen, dette er en 62 kilometer lang merket rute som kan deles opp i mindre etapper. Sykkelruten følger "Rallarvegen" som ble bygget for å transportere mannskap og utstyr i forbindelse med bygging av sørlandsbanen. Turen går innom flere historiske steder som f.eks Ulefoss hovedgård og Telemarkskanalen.

For de som liker toppturer er turene til Eventyrstien, Nåsnibben, Åsland gård eller Luberg flotte turer som kun ligger noen kilometer fra boligen. Dette er merkete "postkasseruter" med varighet fra 1-3 timer.
