Venabygdsfjellet the vast mountain plateau south of Rondane National Park which you pass on the way between Rondane River Lodge and Ringebu. It lies at an altitude between 850 and 1000m, partly in the birch forest belt and partly above the tree line. It enjoys a stable and snow-proof winter climate from December to April. As a result it’s one of the best known areas for cross country skiing in Norway with wide views in all directions. Over 160km of perfectly groomed skiing trails are waiting for beginners and more advanced skiers. It’s also the starting point of the famous Troll-loypa.
Venabygdsfjellet is only snow free between June and September. During the summer it offers great opportunities mountain biking and hiking. We can definitely recommend the short hikes to Myfallet, a powerful waterfall which falls into a narrow gorge and Muen, a prominent mountain top overlooking the plateau and Rondane National Park. Several DNT mountain huts are also within reach for multiday trekkings.
