Welcome to Øigardseter Mountain Lodge in Høvringen, Rondane!
At Øigardseter we offer accommodation in historical surroundings, either at our lodge, in modern apartments or in our large cabin. All our guests can enjoy a breakfast and lunch buffet and a three-course dinner, whilst enjoying fantastic views over the mountains and Gudbrandsdalen. Our cosy living room is the perfect place to relax with a good book, in front of the open fire.
In winter, over 100km of cleared and well-marked trails that start right outside the lodge, lead you on stunning walks into the magnificent mountain ranges and forests. Or you can take a ride in our snowmobile about 5km into Rondane, to the perfect place to start an unforgettable skiing adventure. Just down from the lodge we also have a practice / toboggan slope, with its own small ski lift. It’s great for both kids and adults, whether you want to improve your skiing technique or just want to have some sliding fun. Høvringen Ski School offers not only ski training, but also guided ski and snowshoe tours. They also have a good selection of snowshoes, skis and sledges to rent.
In summer, there are 150km of well-marked trails to explore. Rondane is known for its accessible and varied mountain terrain. For those wanting something more challenging, Rondane has ten peaks over 2000 meters, with precipices of nearly 800 meters. We offer our guests rental bikes and the farm roads and trails provide perfect opportunities for amazing bike rides. Many of the mountain lakes in Høvringen and the surrounding area are excellent for fishing, including Høvringsvatnet Lake where you can also enjoy a relaxing trip in your own rowing boat.
If you want more than the countryside has to offer, Gudbrandsdalen is full of things to do and see, from stave churches, cheese makers, historical buildings and a mineral museum, to rafting the river Sjoa’s rapids and alpine skiing – all within an hour's drive of Høvringen!
Øigardseter has been welcoming guests for almost 100 years and take pride in making your stay enjoyable. At present, it’s the third and fourth generation of Øigardseter’s team that welcomes you and they continue to deliver the same great level of service and comfort, which makes our loyal guests want to visit time and time again.
