Giljaland

Giljaland is an old farmhouse we have been renovating for a few years. Just recently we finished renovating an old hydropower station that now provides all the electricity we need. Accommodation in 5 rooms with made-up beds. Shared bathroom and cooking facilities.

Giljaland is an isolated farm, where there is peace and quiet. Many hiking possibilities.

We do our utmost to give our guests the help and attention that they need.
