Rondvassbu Lodge is DNT's flagship lodge in Rondane. It is very accessible from Spranget car park in the summer along a 6 km track, which can easily be cycled. In the winter/spring there is a marked ski trail from Mysuseter.

RondvassbuThe lodge lies at the southern end of Rondvatnet lake at 1170 metres altitude. The original hut was built here in 1903 but it has been expanded and modernized on 5 occasions since then. It is now a large comfortable lodge with over 128 beds in a variety of bedrooms.

During the Easter period and from mid June to late September it is staffed and offers refreshments, meals and accommodation. Outside these times the lodge is not staffed there is a self-service accommodation facility with provisions available. The standard key is needed to gain access.

Both the main lodge and the self-service cabin are completely closed during May and the first third of June to discourage walkers in the Reindeer calving season. The prices are the DNT standard prices.

The lodge is run extremely well run privately on behalf of DNT and they have produced a very comprehensive website with loads of excellent information, including prices, and with an English link. The website also contains the all important boat times on Rondvatnet lake. The web address is www.rondvassbu.com and Tel: +47 61 23 18 66.
