Utladalen Naturhus, or The Nature House of Utladalen, is situated at Skåri, an old farm in the valley Utladalen. The farm was run to the 1970s. In 1996 the Utladalen Naturhus Trust started restauring the old cultural landscape, and the old farm was included in this project. The Nature House of Utladalen opened in May 1998, and has to this day been run by the Utladalen Naturhus Trust. The main purpose of the Trust is to give information about the natural and cultural history of Utladalen and the western part of Jotunheimen, through an exhibition in the old barn at the farm. The employees of Naturhuset also run a very popular cafè during the summer.
