Experience the tranquility of untouched nature in our peaceful high mountain cabin.

The Sigurdsheller cabins, located by Øyarvatn, are owned by Statskog and are part of the conservation area Setesdal Vesthei Ryfylkeheiane landscape area (SVR) of 2,385 km2. The area was bought up by Oslo investor Thorvald Meyer Heiberg in the early 1900s and is rich in history from this time. The area has been owned by the state since the 1940s and the cabins can be rented through Sirdal Huskyfarm in the summer.

The cabins were built by Heiberg in 1915 to attract the world’s upper classes and were restored in 2000. The cabins are a “living museum” full of stories in an exciting area with many cultural sites. The cabins have a total of 10 beds and are a regular destination for dog sledding trips in the winter. In summer, the cabins are easily accessible on foot, by boat or canoe. About one kilometer from Siggurdsheller, Sirdal’s longest sandy beach Rågeloni is located in the mountains. Sigurdsheller was permanently protected by Norway’s Directorate for Cultural Heritage in 2019.

Fishing with rod is included in the rental price.

The cabins are accessible via boat transport or a 1.5 hour trek.
