Description

Fondsbu is a member of the Norwegian Trekking Association (DNT) and is a staffed cabin with lodging and meals.

Fondsbu lies at scenic Eidsbugarden on lake Bygdin. It has a vibrant environment and is popular with avid hikers. Here there also are challenges for summit seekers and for glacier hikers.

Hike choices: There are many magnificent choices of hikes from Fondsbu and Eidsbugarden. The hike to the summit of Utsikten ("The vantage point") is recommended! Popular poet Aaamund Olavson Vinje (1818-1870) named the peak, as he did the Jotunheimen range. Utsikten was his favourite place at Eidsbugarden, with good reason, as the view from it is magnificent.

In winter, there are staked routes in all directions from Fondsbu. Some of the routes are staked in February, when the lodge opens, and others are staked later in winter.
