Venabu Fjellhotell is a family run hotel with a reputation for friendly, attentive hospitality. Venabu is well known for its excellent food and its high-quality activity holidays. Many guests return year after year to enjoy an active winters break. Venabu sits in the centre of the Venabygdsfjellet plateau, at the southern edge of the Rondane National Park. We are on the mountain crossing between Østerdalen and Gudbrandsdalen. The views are spectacular. This is an open landscape of lakes, mountains and forest. Peace and nature surround the hotel. You can ski right from our door.
Venabu is a ‘fjellhotell’. This term holds a special place in Norwegian hearts. It conjures the image of a warm, cosy cabin in the mountains, down to earth and with a focus on its place in nature.
Built in the Norwegian architectural style, Venabu’s rooms are light and airy. Traditional colours, textiles and features contribute to the mountain style. Venabu has an extensive collection of Norwegian art displayed around the hotel. There are superb mountain views from the dining room and many of the bedrooms.
The spacious lounge or ‘stua’ has an open fire and grand piano. Guests gather to share stories of their adventures and enjoy a drink from the bar. There is plenty of space for everyone.
Read a book in our library, play one of our board games, have a game of pool, watch TV or just relax. During the main holiday seasons our musician plays before dinner and in the evening.
Complimentary teas, including loose leaf, Yogi and herbal teas, and coffee are always available in the lounge. You can order espresso, cappuccino, coffee latte or hot chocolate.
All rooms are Double, twin or single and equipped with shower/WC , hair dryer, Wi-Fi, and balcony/terrace to ensure your comfort thanks to their generous layout they provide an exclusive ambience, supplement payable for mountain view room.

Food and Drink
Venabu is well known for its delicious food and generous servings. We offer tasty vegetarian options every day. As a mountain hotel we like to share Norwegian and local food traditions and culture with our guests. Norwegian cuisine often favours meat and fish. Traditional cooking methods include curing, drying and smoking and our chefs are expert in these. Good quality, local ingredients and healthy, homemade food are important values in our kitchen.
Every Wednesday, in high season, we serve our special menu: ‘A Taste of Norwegian Tradition’. This currently replaces our popular Norwegian Buffet.
