Bjørnhollia lies south in the Rondane range, with its sheltered valleys and splendid scenery. Variety is close at hand - summit hikes, strolls or fishing. The lodge is a gem; in 1984 it was awarded the Muncipality of Sel Architecture Prize for the best trekker facility in the mountains. You'll definitely feel at home here.
Bjørnhollia is staffed at Easter and in summer. In the off season during the rest of the year, it offers self-service lodging with 14 bunks, available by using the DNT cabin key. NOTE: Each year, both the staffed lodge and the self-service quarters are closed from 1 May to 10 June, the wild reindeer calving season.
Extended stays of two days or more may be booked directly at the lodge in season or by contacting the hosts in off season.
