Day 1: A manor stay at Losby Gods

 

Just 20 minutes' journey from Oslo city center and only 10 minutes from Lillestrøm a country lane winds majestically into the deep forest. In the middle of magnificent nature, and the mystery of the woods, Losby Gods emerges The manor reveals itself surrounded by a calm, and a harmony you have never experienced before. You have entered the heart of the countryside, where rustic charm meets dark mystique of the forest. Losby Gods a large country estate, steeped in over 170 years of history, elegancy and tradition.

 

In the mid-1800s, it was the Meyer family who owned Losby. The head of the familye Jacob Meyer decided to build a hunting castle on the property where they could invite the capital's elite for recreation and representation. Both royalty and the elite travelled here to hunt and to enjoy the dinner parties and festivities on the estate which were widely known. Losby was described as a place where guests were greeted with overwhelming hospitality. This tradition continues today.

Here you can enjoy a wide range of activities both indoors and outdoors. If you love to play golf, Losby can tempt you with one of the country's finest golf facilities right outside the door. In cooperation with Losby Golf Club, they can offer guests access to the two great golf courses Østmork and Vestmork, Europe's largest Trackman simulator-center and its own Footgolf course.

 

In addition, the estate has the fantastic nature of Østmarka next door, with great hiking opportunities all year round. Pack a picnic basket and eat supper outside on a bright summer evening while the bumblebees buzz and the sparrows sings. At Mønemann you can rent a canoe, or lie down on a rocky shore and just enjoy the warm sun rays against your skin. Borrow a bicycle from the reception and explore all the historical sites nearby, such as old farms, homesteads / cotter’s holdings and the old waterwheel. Start your autumn day with a brisk jog through the colourful forest, and glide through the winter landscape on skis or with cosy sleigh rides on a cold winter's day.

 

Losby Gods is known for its cuisine and its well-stocked wine cellar and this evening you will enjoy a tasty meal in the restaurant on the estate.


 

Day 2: Travel further towards the idyllic Hoel Gård

 

After breakfast, the experience continues towards Hoel Gård by the lake Mjøsa, either by driving the E6 towards Hamar via Eidsvoll Verk, or by taking Rv4 towards Roa/Raufoss or Gjøvik.

 

We recommend Rv4 with detour from Roa towards Jevnaker. Here you can, among other things, visit Hadeland Glassverk with glass sales and a variety of activities exebitions, and the scenic sculpture park Kistefos with an impressive collection of works by internationally renowned contemporary artists and a beautiful gallery "The Twist".

 

The journey continues to Gjøvik, which is located by the lake Mjøsa, also called "The White City by  the lake Mjøsa". The paddle steamer SS Skibladner, "Mjøsa's white swan", has its home port here. The city was one of the host cities during the Olympics in Lillehammer in 1994 when Gjøvik Olympic Hall (The world's largest underground auditorium) was the arena for ice hockey.

 

If you choose to drive the E6, we recommend booking a table for lunch at Atlungstad Distillery at Otterstad before driving on to Hoel Gård.
On the Nes peninsula, right down by the lake Mjøsa, is the manor house at Hoel Gård. Idyllic in a landscape colloquially called "Norway's Tuscany". The view over the lake Mjøsa is breathtaking in all kinds of weather.

 

Some periods during the summer you can get here via the paddle steamer SS Skibladner and be picked up in the farm's vintage cars and the world's oldest Volvo bus. Norway's longest linden alley (1600 m) is a hallmark of the farm along with the many large, historic and beautiful buildings.

The farm is a vibrant farm with its own production of chicken, grain, seeds and potatoes in addition to the outreach activities that since 1993 have brought countless people here. At Hoel Gård you will be served some of the best that this county has to offer. The farm focuses on culinary experiences with local ingredients, and produces much of what is served in the restaurant. 

 

You will experience this for yourself when the chef's delicious 3-course dinner is served in the evening.


 

Day 3: Check-out and new adventures await you

 

After a good and local farm breakfast, you can explore the beautiful surroundings. If you come in the summer season, we recommend a trip on the lake Mjøsa with Skibladner.
