come and enjoy delicious Belgian pancakes in The 100-year-old Cafe!

The Osa kafeen is a cozy place with an amazing hidden story. 100 years ago it was built to be a cafe for the workers employed to build one of the largest hydro power plants in Norway. It took 2200 workers and 11 years of hard work, but unfortunately the project was ended due to a bankruptcy. Now, the Kafeen and a huge network of tunnels and shafts is all that remains from that period. Learn more about the fascinating history. 

In Osa Kafeen, every tourist can get touristic information, coffee, tea, pancakes or ice cream. Here we welcome the guests that stay overnight in Hardanger Basecamp, and it is the place wher our guests enjoy a delicious "all you can eat" pancake breakfast, along with a variety of at least 5 different homemade marmalades, made from handpicked fruits, flowers or plants.

The cafe is also the starting place for some of our excursions or activities, but can perfectly serve as a starting place for self organised hiking trips in the region with parking space nearby. You can treat yourself with a well deserved drink and a snack after your adventure.
