A friendly hotel in the mountains


Venabu fjellhotell is situated centrally on the Venabygdsfjellet mountain plateau, south of Rondane National Park. This special mountain area offers fine experiences in nature, across the plateau, in its lakes & streams, waterfalls & mountain tops stretching towards 1500m asl.


What type of hotel?

Venabu is built in several stages in Norwegian architectural style with light & airy rooms throughout. There are 56 bedrooms with shower, WC & telephone. 6 of the rooms are suitable for wheelchair users. We also have high standard holiday cabins for rent. Peaceful & relaxed atmosphere throughout.



The dining room has a fantastic view towards the Rondane and over the local mountains. Downstairs we have two saunas, a solarium, meeting rooms, two TV lounges, table tennis table, a pool table & children's play room. There’s also a large ski waxing room with ski hire & shop, as well as a souvenir shop by reception with a selection of hand made souvenirs. We have live dance music 6 days a week in season and a fully licensed bar.
Every Sunday evening Lars shows his slide show of Venabu and the mountains, including information about the activities available throughout the year. Halldis holds a slideshow, with comments, about local flora once a week.


Good food is important! Every Wednesday evening we serve our ”Norwegian Buffet” – a selection of traditional Norwegian food and we explain the traditions behind the food served. We are well known for good quality, home made food and a good variety of vegetarian dishes. You are welcome to enjoy a spell in our dining room for a la carte meals or simply a cup of coffee & a cake outside our main mealtimes.


We pride ourselves on our ability to ensure our guests enjoy their stay in the mountains, be it alone or with one of our guides, summer or winter. Footpaths & ski trails start at the door of the hotel and head in all directions. From our riding stables we offer horse riding & carriage driving throughout the year. We can also offer choices for wheelchair users. We have a 40 year tradition of welcoming ”vintersportsuke” for the disabled at the end of the winter.


Your hosts

Our family has built up the hotel since 1950 under the motto ”friendliness & helpfulness”. We have a loyal staff and we hope to welcome you soon to Venabu and the mountains!
