Kaldor--Kaldor - Hafjell

Førå house

Kaldor Farm is located in Øyer, County of Oppland in Norway 17 km north of Lillehammer. It lays 350 meters above sea level.  It has the most beautiful view over the Gudbrandsdalen valley. The mountain area is georgious! In summer it is ideal for walks, cycling and visits to the many attractions in the area (see links below). In winter for both alpine and cross-country skiing. Closest neighbour is Hafjell Alpine Centre with ski-in and -out possibilities. 

One of the houses at Kaldor is the Førå. In earlier days it was a tradition that the former owners would retain certain rights when signing over the farm to the new generation (or to new owners) including the right to a place to live, a part of the farm produce and maybe some land and animals. Such a provision would be called «førå» (short for «føderåd»), in some parts of the country «kår». The house used for this purpose would be the føråsbygning, or førå. Our Førå was built around 1930, on the foundations of the old «eldhus» (where the food going into storage was prepared). A full restoration of the Førå was completed in 2008 with a 5 bed capacity (see description below).
