Meet the hosts at Gomobu

Gomobu was founded in 1967 by Magnhild and Knut Sveine. 25 years ago, Bjørn and Astrid Sveine took over the management of the mountain lodge and has run it ever since. By the way, did you know that "Gomo" means Grandmother in a Norwegian dialekt? That is also an important part of the atmosphere at Gomobu; just like staying with most grandmother's, it should be a warm and cozy place with great food.
