Outdoor meal in a gapahuk

Inside the gapahuk at Pellestova


A 'gapahuk'  is a building with tree walls made of wood, originally meant for giving av shelter when sleeping outdoor. Our gapahuk is one of the more solid types with benches and a large fireplace in the center.

Our gapahuk can be reached by foot or by snow shoes in the winter. The hike to the gapahuk takes approx. 20 minutes and gives the whole experience the little extra touch.

If you are looking for a teambuilding activity or want to do something special with your friends, the gapahuk is the ideal place for you! We arrange lunches and full 3-course dinners prepared on the fire by your own chef for the evening.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have specific request or would like som more information.

    Pellestova is not too far from Lillehammer via bus or car. The hotel itself is very comfortable with a range of room options of different costs. My room was a simple one, but just fine for me. I... Read full review
