Granbostad is a special place that most people find fascinating. It lies on the southern end of the Åbjøra lake, beautifully overlooking the water and its surrounding mountains. Granbostad used to be a well run farm with many animals, large fields and profitable forestry.There are a few cabins in the area belonging to local people, but not close enough to interfere with your privacy.
Granbostad used to be the main house on the old farm. It is an old house that has been renovated in the old style and has therefore kept its originalatmosphere. But there are modern facilities like propane kitchen and fridge/freezer, a wood heated sauna and a shower, running hot and cold water. A wood burning stove in the kitchen allows you even to bake your own bread! In other words this a comfortable lodging, allowing you to live in the past, but at the same time having access to modern facilities. And like all old houses Granbostad of course has its own ghost!

The road leads straight up to Granbostad, after about 400 metres you park the car next to the house.
The 15 km. long river Åelva runs from the lake to the fjord. This is one of the best salmon rivers in the northern part of Norway. Fishing is not included, but can be bought at a resonable price.
