The Prince Cabin, Sikkilsdalen

The Royal Mountain Chalet "Prinsehytta" is the private property of the King and Queen. It is located in Sikkilsdalen, in the mountains of Jotunheimen.

Quote:
The Norwegian-Swedish kings of the 19th century had many friends in Norway who were eager to foster closer relations between their country and the monarchy. An initiative was launched to collect funds to build a chalet in the Norwegian mountains. Palace Superintendent Hjalmar Wellhaven, son of the great Norwegian poet Johan Sebastian Wellhaven, designed the chalet, and building was begun in 1900. It was completed two years later and presented as a gift to the Swedish princes Gustaf Adolf, Wilhelm and Erik.
The chalet was much used for hunting and other recreational activities until 1905, when the union between Norway and Sweden was dissolved. The chalet remained in Swedish hands but fell into disuse. Later Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf of Sweden presented the chalet to Crown Prince Olav as a gift when the latter attained his majority.
King Olav spent more than 40 Easter in Sikkilsdalen. He was there for the first time in 1924 to see the gift.
It has become a tradition for the Royal Couple to celebrate Easter in Sikkilsdalen, often joined by their children's families.
