We are very excited to travel to Rondane with you! Rondane National Park is a beautiful area in the heart of Norway. It's only about four hours by bus from Trondheim. It's home to several mountains over 2000m high, the highest being Rondeslottet at 2178m. Rondane National Park was established in 1962, making it the first and oldest national park in Norway. The area has everything from barren high alpine peaks to gentle slopes with cozy mountain farms. The park is also home to a herd of close to 2000 wild reindeer! It's also the only highland ecosystem in Europe where wild reindeer, wolverines, arctic foxes, golden eagles, ravens and rodents coexist.
 
We will be staying at Rondane Fjellstue, which is an old cozy traditional mountain lodge located about 5 km from the border of Rondane national park. You can check out http://www.rondane-fjellstue.no/ for more information about the lodge. We will be staying in two-to-four-person rooms. There's a restaurant at the lodge and it's also possible to prepare our own food. We will be the only ones staying there that weekend, so we will have the whole lodge to ourselves.
 
Rondane Høyfjellshotell is nearby, and here we are able to chill out in their sauna, jacuzzi and swimming pool at a discounted price. They also have a nice spa department, where you can book different treatments. There's also posible to rent bikes here, for 100 NOK per person (discounted from 150 NOK).
 
We will have the chance to visit one of the many summits in the area, see the absolutely stunning nature, go hiking in the area, go biking, see beautiful waterfalls and more. You do NOT need to be an experienced hiker to join this trip. Everyone can join and have fun and see the beautiful nature in the area. Maybe we even get to see some wild reindeer!
