One of Norways oldest wooden hotels - owned by the same family for over 700 years. At around 1300 AD - more than three hundred years before the Pilgrim Fathers left Plymouth in southern England to establish the first European settlement in the New World - Sygard Grytting provided accommodation for medieval pilgrims on their way to the St. Olaf Cathedral in Trondheim.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The history at this place is beyond incredible! Steig and Hilda are the sweetest and welcome all into their family farm to give a true Norwegian pilgrimage experience. The rooms are historic but comfortable and have the slightest modern twist that work in the best way. The meal Hilda prepared was so delicious you thought it came from a 4 star restaurant. I have been in Norway for almost 2 weeks and gone all over and this place is the memory that will stay with me forever. If you have a chance, it's a must!

Our family of five (all adults and my 78-year-old mother) stayed here one night in the little cabin with a second floor balcony. We sat outside until about 11:00 pm drinking wine and enjoying the view of the beautiful valley. My mother appreciated the comfortable bed/sofa downstairs that also had a bathroom. We four stayed upstairs (somewhat narrow steps) in beds built into the wall that reminded me of hobbit beds but were plenty large enough for my 6'4 husband. Very clean and cozy and comfortable. The breakfast spread was the most elegant and lovely - candles and fresh flowers- we had in Norway. I wish we had time to stay for the tour - but we had to leave before 10:30 am. We would definitelystop by again as the owners were absolutely delightful and gave us excellent trip advice.

The highlight of our visit to Norway was staying here in the "karstuga" (farmhand cottage) for one night, walking around the farm, walking on the pilgrims trail adjacent to the farm, walking downhill to the modern statue display, and sitting on the 2nd floor porch outside our bedroom with its cozy cabinet double bed and looking over the peaceful farmyard and countryside. Although it's close to E6, the road doesn't intrude. I felt as one with a place dating back hundreds of years. If I ever come back to this area, I'd love to stay longer, and would make it a destination, not a stopover.

This B&B is right on the Olavsweg! It is restored beautifully and is the last remaining original Medieval Pilgrims Loft! However with the restoration comfortable beds and clean modern bathrooms exist. The owners are present and care for you. Dinner was prepared for us. I have food allergies which can be difficult but not here. We requested a single course. We were served potatoes with lamb. It was perfectly seasoned and inexpensive. The owners are knowledgeable about history and current day. Loved our stay.

This collection of authentic historical buildings form a unique hotel in Norway. The location, just off the main route (E6) from Oslo to Trondheim is popular with people walking the pilgrim route as well as general tourists. We stayed in The Karstugu which is a little self-contained house beside the main house. It was like a museum inside and a fascinating place to spend the night. It was also very clean and filled with antiques. A tour of the hotel was interesting from a historical perspective (one of the oldest medieval lofts is at Sygard Grytting) as well as a good chance to meet other guests. The hosts were really friendly and breakfast was delicious.
+ handy location and a great chance to go back in time
- expensive and the main road can be seen and heard from the hotel

This is probably one of the most amazing places to stay in Norway. The buildings, the rooms and the location itself is incredibly beautiful. The hosts are truly warm and wonderful people, sharing the proud history of this family run farm. We arrived for a overnight stay with our baby daughter and chose self catering in Karstugu. A beauitful historical building with comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, bathroom and a massive fireplace. Everything was in order. Pure enjoyment.

If you want a taste of Norway 100 years ago, this is the place to stay. Stig and Hilde are wonderful hosts and make your stay as if you'll feel you've "come home" . Rooms are vintage quaint, with modern bathrooms. This property is on the "pilgrimage trail" and the buildings are still used for that purpose. Stig gives you a tour of the property and is very informative of the area. The item that stands out is sleeping with my window open and waking up to the "baaaa" of the sheep and the bells on the lambs clunking. ---aka No traffic sounds.

The owner-hosts are the most gracious people, sharing the history of their centuries-old working farm. Wonderful locavore food served family style, so you can meet other guests -- from diverse countries. A variety of accommodations, from hostel-style to full en-suite bedrooms.

A trip back in time; a place to meditate, sense history, and meet like-minded people; an oasis of peace along a busy thoroughfare (E6). Sygard Grytting is a family owned/run farm with buildings dating back to the middle ages. Rooms are available in the main house, or in one of the other buildings (some more rustic than others for those who like that). Gracious hosts Stig and Hilda Grytting bid you welcome, and prepare delicious meals featuring produce and berries from their garden and other local fare. For example, they had a goats' milk brie for breakfast from another Gudbrandsdal farm that was just sumptuous! The jams and jellies and all the bread were home-made, fresh and wonderful. The farm is a well-known stop along the pilgrim path to Trondheim, the "St.Olavs veg." Several of my fellow guests were pilgrims, stopping in to eat, rest, shower, read, pray, contemplate and get their books stamped. If you enjoy gardens, I highly recommend spending time walking among the fruit trees, herbs, medicinal plants and flowers at Sygard Grytting. Plants are named on signs, and their significance to the viking garden, medieval garden, renaissance garden and so forth are so informative. Slept like a baby; ate like a queen! Will return to this beautiful place.
