DNT are closing cabins and urge you to postpone long trips in the mountains.
Due to the situation we have today with COVID-19 virus, we unfortunately have to cansel all our activities, and close our cabins. They are only open in emergency situations.
When you arrive at a cabin, you never know was there before you, and if they are ill/have been ill, so there is a risk for the virus to spread from one visitor to the next. The cabins are also small, and inside it is not possible to keep the recommanded distance to other visitors, as the health authorities have imposed on us. Due to the basic facilities, it is difficult to maintain sufiicient hand hygiene to limit the risk of infection.
Bodø og Omegns Turistforening therefore closes the cabins with immediate effect, due to advice from the authorities. Cabins can only be used if you are in the mountains and in a case of emergency.
We ask everybody to act according to information, advice and guidelines issued by the NIPH (Norwegian Institute of Public Health): https://www.fhi.no/en/
