    Every 2nd year Tydal is re-enacting The Swedish General Armfeldt's retreat from an unsucsessful attack on Trondheim in 1718, when some 5000 soldiers came through on their way back to Sweden on New Years Day. Due to terrible weather, more than 2000 soldiers later died on the montains...BTW, the re-enactment takes place outdoors in early January, with freezing temperatures, regardless of weather...

    The photo is one of the actors, giving us a preview of the show while we were staying at Vekterstua.

    Note the bench in front of the church. It says "Pilgrimsbenken" (The Pilgrim's Bench).
    Tydal/Stugudal was an important waypoint for Swedish pilgrims travelling to Trondheim (then Nidaros) in the Middle Ages. The Pilgrim Route has been restaurated and properly signed lately and is poplar with hikers and walkers and modern-day pilgrims.

    I was here for a conference, so I cannot vouch for the quality of the restauarnt, only for the food we got. Lunch was great. Dinner was a treat. Breakfast just right. Not a WIDE menu selection, but definitely with a mountain touch.

    Favorite Dish: Fried mountain trout, cucumber slad, sour cream and potatoes. So simple, but so delicious.

    Mountain trout

    William H. Singer was the son of a Philadelphia steel magnat. He was a painter who fell in love with the Norwegian landscape, particularly Tydal (and Olden in Nordfjord). He inherited some 25 million US dollars in the early 1900s and had this cabin erected, as well as other cabins for the staff that served him. The original cabin was moved from its location in the 1960s, because it was at the site of a major hydroelectric dam and was used by the workers, and later restored. Not open to the public, but there is a dedicaion plaque on the wall outside.
