Where can I find Norwegian cabins for rent?
AirBnb is starting to be the #1 place for renting out and renting cabins in Norway. In addition they have a marketplace called Finn.no, here you also can find cabins for rent. Our experience is that Finn.no can be cheaper if you want to rent a cabin for a longer period of time.
What is the standard on these kinds of cabins?
Old traditional Norwegian cabins have no power, perhaps a solarpanel that can power lights. According to the norwegian website Solcellepaneler.com, solarpanels is called “solcellepaneler” on Norwegian. So if you are looking for a cabin that has “solcellepaneler” included in the name, then the cabin is most likely very simple.
If you are looking at newer cabins, they have high standards and are most likely to be like your house.
