Fortress at Thokampen


Where the Ottadalen Valley emerges into the Gudbrandsdalen Valley, Thokampen rises up on the southern slope. Thokampen was probably an iron-age village fortress. Marcello Haugen, who was known as a "psychic", built the "Sameti" cabin at Thokampen in 1912. The cabin is open to the public. From Thokampen it is not far to Pillarguritoppen, where Pillarguri blew her birch trumpet when Captain Sinclair and a Scottish mercenary army on their way to the Kalmar Wars in Sweden were stopped by Norwegian farmers at Kringen on 26 August 1612.
