A mountain getaway

A family business with long-standing traditions

Kamben was originally a summer farm, built in 1836. In 1920, E. Eidsgaard rebuilt the summer farm to a hotel. In 1936, Dorthea and Martin Brekke, bought the hotel and it has stayed in the family ever since. Today it is their grandson, Martin Glimme, that welcome the visitors to Kamben. Martin puts his heart into keeping the warm, cosy atmosphere and serving good, home-cooked meals to all of his guests. Martin is also the chef at the hotel, and he always prepares the four-course-dinner at the hotel every night.
