    Beside the log cabins and hotel rooms at Rondane River Lodge, we also rent out the more secluded forest cabin Fjellsyn which can host up to 6 persons. It’s located in the forest on a sunny hillside overlooking Setningen lake, Vulua river and the valley surrounding Rondane River Lodge. It’s accessible by car and located just a 10 minutes walk from the lodge, so ideal for those wanting to endulge themselves in nature while still enjoying all the facilities at the lodge.


    The forest cabin is the latest addition to Rondane River Lodge and is being completely renovated at the moment. We tried to preserve it’s authentic charm as a Norwegian timber cabin including, of course, a traditional grass roof that’s not only beautiful but isolates also very well. It has a cosy living room with stove and fireplace, a kitchen with additional sitting corner, 1 bedroom with a double bed, 1 bedroom with a bunk bed and an additional alcove room with a 150cm double bed. There is also a combustion toilet in the main building while the new annex building has a private wood-fired sauna with panoramic window and a simple bathroom with shower and sink. The huge panoramic terrace with garden furniture invites to sit in the sun from the early morning until sunset.


    Although fully electrified on a secluded location, the forest cabin also comes with a compromise as this is the only cabin not having water supply directly inside the building. There is an outdoor water tap however, where you can fill bottles with natural spring water for use in the kitchen and to electrically heat water in the bathroom for a hot shower. So it requires a bit of effort and patience to obtain, especially hot, water. But those with an adventurous mindset will definitely enjoy the simple comfort of having to use water conciously. The forest cabin also has it’s own charging station for electric cars, making this definitely our most ecological accommodation.

    Dogs are welcome for 100 NOK extra per night.
