Øien Øvre's accommodations are four small, rustic cabins in an old summer farm. The heating is gas or wood, and in the evenings you may light the candles and oil lamps. You can find drinking water in a hose outside, in the stable. Most of the meals are cooked over open fire. They also have gas stoves inside, in case of rain. You will share the cabins with two to four other persons.

On your second night, you sleep in lavvos (tents) in the mountains. Here, you cook your dinner over the cooking fire. On the third night, you will sleep at Hindseter Fjellhotell, in double rooms with shower, or in a cabin with several beds and a shower in the bathroom.
