The Osa Kafeen is a cozy place with an amazing hidden story.  More than 100 years ago it was built when hundreds of the workers were employed in Osa 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 and book our historic "tunnel excursion".

The super cozy Kafeen is situated right next to a white river coming from the nearby mountain. There is a garden offering place for at least 40 persons. Sitting just a few meters away from the stream, listening to the sounds it makes while having a pancake is an experience in itself!

In Osa Kafeen, the guests of Hardanger Basecamp and day tourists can get touristic information, coffee, tea, Home-made apple juice, variety in pancakes, delicious local dishes, Belgian beers, local ciders or ice cream. Our overnight staying guests from Hardanger Basecamp 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 and a range of Belgian sugars.

The cafe is also the starting place for some of our excursions or activities, rent kayaks, bikes or fishing equipment, but can also 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 or meal after your adventure!
