Kobberhaughytta Oslo Reviews
Nice place for lunch and outdoor activities Sep 01, 2012
Kobberhaughytta is a log cabin build in 1931. It is located by Kobberhaug pond in the North forest. We walked from Frognerseteren, which is an 8 km walk on either gravel road or on forest trails. We did a mix of both.
The cabin has two dining rooms. One big one, which seats 90 people, with a huge fire place. During the winter the fire is always lit. This creates a nice and warm atmosphere. The small dining room has one big table and can seat 12 people.
I was quite disappointed by the selection of food they offered. The cinnamon rolls were nice and fresh (smelled fantastic) and the waffles were being made, but the sandwiches were noting impressive (ready made and wrapped in plastic). It was a sign above the cashier saying that they could make fresh sandwiches, you just had to ask. So I did. The answere I got was not very friendly, she almost snapped at me when she said that there were sandwiches on the counter. I told her that due to food alergy I could not eat what was offered. She then became a little nicer. After a while I guess she realized that she hadn´t been very nice and changed completely. She made me a fresh ham sandwich which was very tasty, and it was served with a nice smile. She even gave me a cup with mayo and dijon mustard on the side.
In an annex next to Kobberhaughytta you can get some food and drinks form vending machines. The annex is open 24/7. Don´t forget coins for the vending machines.
They also offer accommodation, but this has to be booked in advance. Rooms accommodate 2-6 people pr room. If you like to sleep outside you can rent Gapahukene by the pond. This is more like a shelter with roof. There are two of those with a fireplace in the middle.
If you stay at Kobberhaughytta the use of rowing boats, canoes, kayaks, fishing equipment and bicycles are free of charge. If you are just visiting for the day, you can rent it. They also have a floating jetty, which is great if you like a dip in the pond. It was a few children swimming today, but they were much braver then me. I found it way too cold.
Kobberhaughytta do have WI-FI, but not sure if you have to pay for it.
The cabin is easy accessable from Frognerseteren (metro no 1), from Sognsvann (metro no 3) and from Sørkedalen (metro no 2 to Røa, then bus no 41).
During the summer season they are open 11 am - 4 pm on weekends only. During the winter the opening hours are 11 am - 4 pm Wednesday - Sunday, including bankholidays. In the winter you can only reach the cabin skiing.
