Mayor Bente Estil visiting Skålestrømmen

On Monday afternoon, our mayor Bente Estil came to visit. It was a nice afternoon with a lot of good conversations, fantastic weather and good food & coffee.

Guiding @ Skålestrømmen i Juli 2021

The COVID-Situation makes survival pretty tough, but we can be happy for that we have – the fantastis fishing at Skålestrømmen. The last weeks we had guests from Oslo and Telemark, who fished the massive hatches in Skålestrømmen. 100% dry-fly fishing. It was great fun and a pleasure guiding and hosting these extremely nice people. – Thomas Züllich, guide, host and everything in between at Skålestrømmen

Travel insurance when booking via Andino Reisen in Switzerland

Andino Reisen is glad to inform you of a very important innovation:

Cancellation insurance is automatically included with all of our new bookings when booked. In addition to the usual risks such as illness and accident (from the booking date to the start of the trip), this also covers all costs incurred in the event of cancellation as a result of quarantine regulations or entry bans issued at short notice.

Specifically, this means: Plan your vacation now without risk! Due to this year’s rebooking to 2021, there are already bottlenecks at many popular destinations. In the event of a cancellation due to the pandemic, we will take care of the processing with the insurance company and you will be reimbursed without a waiting period.

Moose-watching from the veranda

Between 10 & 11 pm the moose, sometimes several, tends to show up in very close vincinity to the hut. It’s always exciting and never gets boring. The challenge is to get a good picture without scaring him (a male in this case) or her or even them.
