The Elgtårn - Moose tower is 12 metres high and is located at lake Ramstjern in Espedalen.

In the bedroom section on the second floor there are 3 double “bunk beds” built into the bay windows with an aerial view of the surrounding countryside. The size of the beds - approx. 1 metre wide and 2 metres long - allows you to lie on two of them, unless you are too tall.

On the third floor there is a living room with a stove, benches and tables. The stove top has cooking facilities. The tables and benches have been placed in the bay windows but they can be put together to make larger units. In addition, there are four log seats.

At the top,12 metres above ground level, is “the View” - probably Norway’s finest “outside toilet” - with an incinerating toilet. Follow the instructions provided :)

A barbecue pan for preparing meals outside is available down by the boathouse at Ramstjern - just a 5-minute walk from the tower. Remember to take wood and whatever you need to light the barbecue with you. It is not permitted to make open fires in the vicinity of the tower.

The Elgtårn is designed to give you close-to-nature experiences. It is suitable for people who like things a little primitive, with no running water or electricity.
