Hiking holidays at Venabu

Venabu’s guided walking holidays

Eastern Norway offers contrasting landscapes from the rich farmland of Gudbrandsdalen to the elemental beauty of the Rondane National Park. You can experience the exhilaration of the Dovre and Jotunheimen National Parks and the peace of wild places. All of these are made accessible on our guided hiking holidays.

We offer a range of hiking holidays from June to September: early summer into autumn, at this latitude. Each holiday has a different theme and grade of hiking, so that you can find a holiday to suit your interests and experience. Venabu’s walking holidays are all-inclusive and centre-based at the hotel. Carrying just what you need for the day, our expert guides share their favourite hikes. Each carefully designed programme of guided hiking tours shows you the best that this beautiful area has to offer.

Ideally suited to single or solo travellers, join like-minded people for your adventure. Enjoy the warm hospitality and delicious food at our comfortable, family run hotel.

Venabu is in Eastern Norway, on the edge of the Rondane National Park, famous for its herd of wild reindeer. On our walking holidays you’ll find special, wild places and tranquil nature. The hotel sits on a mountain plateau at 932m asl. The views of the surrounding mountains and Rondane are spectacular. Travel to Venabu is straightforward from both Oslo and Trondheim.
