“Ski Touring at Venabu March 2014”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

My wife and I have been on ski touring holidays at several resorts in Norway as well as France, Italy and Austria. We would rate Venabu Fjellhotell as clearly the best in terms of transport from the airport, welcome (and interpretation of the area by the family), food (all Norwegian specialities), free, high-quality ski equipment hire, and leaders. The area is well suited to experienced ski tourers who want to mix track and off-piste, and there are alternative activities such as snow shoeing. Norway is always going to be quite expensive but this was value for money. We would be happy to return.

Room Tip: All accommodation to a high standard.

We have stayed in the Fjellhotell at least three times and each return is like meeting up with old friends. The guides and staff are excellent and caring, the food remarkably good and the skiing fantastic, catering so well for the beginner and experienced. Evening talks on the landscape with stunning slides, are not to be missed. A very comfortable and generous ambiance; a holiday away from it all and a delightful experience not to be forgotten. The only downside is the Norwegian Kroner! Ruth and Stephen

We had a wonderful stay in one of the cabins that form part of the Fjell Hotel.

Our cabin was very cosy and well equipped and within walking distance of the hotel.

It was great to go to the hotel in the evenings for a drink and to play some pool in the games room.

The locations is absolutely perfect for cross country skiing and is suitable for beginners. The trails are well marked and the maps provide a good overview of the loype which are easy to use.

The ski guides arrange a variety of tours each day for every level and their knowledge of the area was outstanding. They also provided help in waxing and preparing the skis each morning and on advising us on the best wax to use for our skis.

We traveled with a six year old and she was able to enjoy the ski trails and get to grips with the basic cross country techniques. we would definitely recommend Venabu for children.

We will certainly return if only because we want to catch a glimpse of the surrounding hills. It was very foggy when we were there so visibility was low.

Venabu Fjellhotell is the perfect place to learn how to cross country ski. Guides and teachers are endlessly patient and knowledgeable. Foodies excellent and fantastic, rooms are comfortable and there is a sauna as well.

We are a family with 17,14 and 12 year olds trying out cross country skiing for first time. We chose this place based on reviews. It was perfect in every way. It felt like a family run place with the warmth this brings to the atmosphere. Staying in a hut with log fire, own sauna watching Northern lights, and privacy is highly recommended. The full board food was great (especially with 3 hungry children who ate three helpings most days). We felt safe and then challenged skiing with extraordinary beauty in 2 metres of snow. This is a rarity....a family run place with a personal touch and great guides in Robert, Wenke and Richard and Siobhan. We have booked next year

Room Tip: hire a hut...its worth it and only a short walk to hotel for food

Did not stay in the hotel, but at one of the cabins owned by the hotel. However, the hotel's buffets, espesially on a Wednesday evening, are not to be missed.

The tours that Robert and his team arrange are very good. Advanced skiers can be taken to places that they wouldn't usually get to. Tracking reindeer across the hills near Muen was a real highlight. Less advanced skiers are also catered for as are non-skiers with snowshoe trips and, sometimes, dog sleds.

Lena, Lars, Robert and all the staff at Venabu made sure we all had an amazing first trip to Norway to experience cross country skiing. We were a big family group ranging in age from 5 - 70 with a variety of skiing experience amongst us and we all had a great holiday. The location of the hotel was ideal for the beginners as well as more experienced skiers, beautiful location and amazing snow. The training and guided tours we had with Robert, Richard and Wenche was first rate. The hotel is clean, comfortable and we enjoyed the relaxed evenings accompanied by the delightful chap on the piano as we played games and chatted in the lounge area. The food is wonderful and plentiful - great quality and with lots of choice, there was something for everyone from the picky 5 year old to the hard to please foodies in our group. The sauna, pool table, table tennis, pancake house trip and in particular the husky ride were all favourites. We cannot wait to go back!!
