    Cabin description

    PDFmap
    The name of Nicokoia comes from Nicolay Sejersted Selmer; he was active in NTHI and liked outdoor life before he died during the Second World War. His parents donated 3000 NOK to NTHI in 1946. This was money Nicolay had earned during his work with radio broadcasting from Bymarka during the first year of the war. Together with Nicolays parents it was decided to build a cabin. Esten Langeland offered a ground next to his alp in Brungmarka. 1947 was the cabin built. The adventure could begin!

    Around the cabin there is nice terrain for skiing, e.g. to Kråkfjellet. In summer you can linger from one nice spot to the next. A daytrip to Kråklikåten can be nice. But be careful: all the valleys in Brungmarka lie in north-south direction. You should try to go along them. If you try to cross them the trip will take longer than you thought!


    Route description

    A trip to Nicokoia starts normally from Brøttem. From here you cross Selbusjøen and follow the road ca. 500 meters where it crosses Brunga. Then you go steep up in direction south until you find the road again. In winter it might be easier to follow the road, even if that means some extra meters. You continue on the road and pass Lekås on the way up to Blestertjørnin. Here you go in direction south on the eastern side of Blestertjørnin, over a small hill and towards a stream. Follow the stream on the west side towards Teigavollen, here it's easier to go.

    Next to Teigavollen there is the old alp road through Brungmarka. Summertime this is a good path, wintertime there is marked scootertrack on it. You follow it to Dalsvollen. Five hundred meters behind the houses you go up in Lokdalen and follow the edge of Litlfjellet towards Langlandsvollen where the cabin is situated ca. 100m in east direction from the alp houses. Langlandsvollen can be difficult to see if you come from north.

    A shorter trip is it to come from south. Here you need a car to drive in the road to Håen from Lundamo. It is open also in winter, but be aware of that early in winter (before middle of February), the road is only open up to the bridge over Skjelbrea, app. 4km before you come to Håen. From Håen you go towards Granhaugvollen and continue to Sæterbekken, pass Steinskjørka and go towards Såmmåran. From here stay east of the marches and go up to Langlandsvollen which is easy to see from this side.

    In summer it's also possible to drive in from Fremo. Then you pass Teigavollen and come in the alp road from there.

    If you don't want to go back the same way, you can e.g. go to Støren and take bus or train from there. For that you have to go down to Håen, cross Gammelåsen and go down to Tilsetvollen, Follstadvollen, Vollsvollen and Høstvollen. Here you will find a road to Støren. Quite nice on skis, but also nice during the rest of the year.

    NB: There is no path most of the way, so you need to bring with you map and compass. (As you always have to do on cabin trips.) It is a long walk to the cabin, so you need to use skies in winter times.
