Welcome to Rondane Gjestegard Rondane Gjestegard is located in sunny Sollia, approximately 250 kilometers north of Oslo. Situated some 780 meters above sea level, two of the closest neighbors of Rondane Gjestegard are Lillehammer, the home of the 1994 Olympic Games, and the beautiful Rondane National Park. A charming hotel and rustic, comfortable log cabins await guests, who can look forward to delicious home-cooked meals and freshly baked cakes. We invite you to experience the stunning expanses and breathtaking beauty of Norway while enjoying the region’s peaceful serenity in total comfort. Cabins We invite you to stay in one of our ten traditional log cabins, which are available with either two or five beds. The cabins were built in 1994 and feature a very high standard. All of them come with a shower and floor heating in the bathroom as well as separate bedrooms. A cozy wood stove awaits you in the comfortable living rooms. You will find all the firewood you need stacked just outside your door. All of the cabins feature wireless Internet access and fully equipped kitchenettes where you can prepare your own meals. If you prefer, you can enjoy delicious meals in the hotel restaurant. Guests are also invited to use the hotel lounge where they than can relax over a cup of coffee and piece of a fresh home-baked cake while relaxing by the fire or browsing through the books in our small library. There is also a grill area near the river for guests who would like to cook or grill their meals outdoors. If you are looking for a unique experience, we invite you to stay in our Stabbur. Traditionally, a stabbur is building found on Norwegian farms where food is stored. Our Stabbur is no longer used as a pantry. Instead, we transformed the two-storey structure into a comfortable cabin, which is the pride and joy of our estate. The Stabbur has been fully modernized and furnished with meticulous care while still retaining its quaint storehouse character. Hotel Our charming hotel offers personalized service and home-cooked meals. Guests enjoy full hotel service yet still feel completely at home in the small but comfortable rooms with shower/WC and Internet access. A hearty Norwegian breakfast is included in the price. Lunch and dinner are also served, and we’ll be glad to prepare a tasty take-away lunch for you for your outings. If you prefer, you can simply relax by the crackling fire in the comfort of our cozy lounge. You can browse through our small library or simply let your mind wander and enjoy the soothing silence that surrounds you. We are looking forward to your visit, Cecielie and Christoph

We had a wonderful stay. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. The food fabulous. The cabins very cozy. Good possibilities for Cross country skiing. Rondane and the mountains were gorgeous. We definitely want to revisit and definitely recommend.

I have stayed twice at Rondane River Lodge during summer time and enjoyed it immensely. To begin with, it's a very picturesque compound with the main building and surrounding log cabins, by a river nestled between hills that rise up to rolling mountains. It is suitable for all kinds of travelers, be it alone to explore hiking and fishing in the area, or for couples who enjoy the outdoors, and also with children of all ages. Benjamin, Karen and crew do an amazing job in making you feel comfortable and at ease. With Karen's Belgian culinary skills you can be sure to enjoy tasty and varied meals, which she easily adapts to vegetarians too. Do I need to mention they have great Belgian waffles? Benjamin has vast experience in travelling and organizing group travels in Norway and knows also Rondane like his back pocket. I have taken his advice on hikes, sights, destinations and such and been rewarded with great experiences each time. He knows all the hiking trails from his own experience and will recommend the right level and the peaks with the best views (which are so breathtaking there is even a famous painting of it in the National Gallery in Oslo). This lovely place puts hospitality first, they love what they do and are very knowledgeable about the area, and you can be sure to have an enjoyable holiday stay.

I stayed in one of the larger cabins. It was very comfortable and cool, which was great as it was very hot during the first few days of our stay. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped. It didn't have an oven, but it had a stove with two cooking rings and a fridge. There was wifi, but the signal wasn't terribly strong. We didn't think this was a big problem. The hosts are fantastic, and took excellent care of us, even when I had an unexpected problem. They know the area really well, and had lots of recommendations for places to visit. I'm saving the best for last - the food. They serve waffles every afternoon in the summer - not just Norwegian waffles, but Brussels and Liege waffles. What a treat! They also serve a three-course meal for dinner, and it is excellent value. Especially considering the quality of the food. They focus on locally sourced ingredients, but prepare them their own way, with excellent results. They offer breakfast, but we didn't try it. I'm sure it was good. I really hope I get the chance to return. I heartily recommend a stay here, or booking in for dinner. I would be surprised if you could get a better meal elsewhere in the area.

Hei! Many thanks for your nice review. We are delighted to hear that you liked your stay and the food so much. We will do whatever we can to further improve the quality and service of Rondane River Lodge with focus on small scale accommodation/activities, home-made food and a personal approach.

We loved our stay! The food was to die for, our rooms comfortable and the surroundings beautiful. Our hosts did everything they could to make sure we had a great stay. We were four adults with four dogs and rented a cabin as well as a hotel room. Highly recommended!

Enjoyed our stay at this out of the way guesthouse. We stayed in a room in the house, however cabins are also available. Room was clean and comfortable, but small. If I had to make one suggestion to the proprietors, it would be to install shades or blinds as the sun comes up between 3 and 4 a.m. this time of year in Norway. The curtain didn't quite do the job. The proprietors are vey helpful and in fact Christophe made an excellent suggestion for a hike on our day of departure. We also had dinner at the guesthouse, which was excellent. They offer a fixed menu based on the day of the week, but with advance notice they will accommodate dietary preferences. With a choice of small or group dining tables we chose a group table and had a very enjoyable conversation with other guests who were from Germany. Recommend you do dinner here. Breakfast was very good with ample choices.
