Telin is a cabin NTNUI can be proud of, a nice block cabin at the edge of Trollheimen.
You can enjoy the mountains around close to the cabin or take a trip up one. If you are in good condition, you can reach Trollhetta or Svarthetta in one day. But also from Ondusfjellet or Åsfjellet you have a nice view!
You might choose Telin as a start point for roundtrips in Trollheimen - continue to Kamtjønnkoia or Rindalsløa. Those trips are long and if you want to have shorter day stages, you can stay at the cabins of Turistforeningen in between.
You will also find a lot of berries and mushrooms in the surroundings or just in front of the cabin. Hunting and fishing is also possible.
The cabin has a living room and two small sleeping alcoves. There are sleeping facilities for 8, but up to 17 persons have slept inside the cabin. Telin no longer has a gas stove, so you must bring rødsprit and paraffin to use with the primus, just like for any other cabin.
If you want to have a campfire, search for dead trees in the surroundings, but not on the other side of the stream.
Take the bus to Grindal in Rennebu. It takes around 2 1/2 hours. From here you follow the winter-route for cars to Telin, from the bus stop it's ca. 10km to Telin.
By car it's easier to reach Telin. Drive to Orkanger first, then continue to Meldal via Storås, pass Å and take the road to Nerskogen / Jøldalshytta (directly behind Grindal).
In summer you can follow the signs to Jøldalshytta (blue P), pass a fox farm that you can see on the left side of the road, turn left and pay at the hut at the cross. Then you can drive some kilometres before a new pay road goes to the left, signed Trollstua / Tælmyran. Take this road on the west side of Tælmyran. From where you have to pay it's 4,1km from the signs to the cabin. You can almost park next to the cabin. Before the way goes up to the right, the cabin lies 75m on the left hand side.
NB! There are two tolls on this road. The first one costs 75 kr and the second one is 50 kr in the summer and 100 kr in the winter. The second toll only accepts cash.
During wintertime you have to take the road to Granasjøen until you reach Bjørklund, an old farmhouse on the left hand side. This means that you don't drive in towards Jøldalshytta. Bjørklund is 6km from Grindal. From here you cross the river Grana (bridge), turn left (south west) and go parallel to the river Hela. On the map you will se a path but it might be hard to see. If you have the feeling that you have come out of the small canyon you were following, you have to go on for some hundred meters and look for the cabin on the right side of the river. But the canyon might be hard to see in winter. It's not longer than 3 kilometers and 130 meters of height from the bridge to the cabin. Don't forget that the first 3/4 parts of the trip you have to go to the south west and not north west.
In winter you can often find ski tracks if you cross Tælmyran and go northwards. Those go along Vorafjellet and down to the Jøldalshytta-road. A nice alternative if you want to take the bus!
