Ystesund Gard is a 200 acre Organic Norwegian Mountain Forest – Farm which was established in 1730, located in a sparsely populated and picturesque mountain region of Fyresdal Telemark in Southern Norway. The Mountain Lodge was built in 2000 and is at an elevation of 600m and overlooks Sundsvatn, a lake with numerous Brown Trout.

The surrounding area is a fantastic large wilderness district with alpine meadows, shimmering lakes, cascading waterfalls and mystical forests where you can escape the crowds and allow your senses to come alive.
