Did you know that Rondane National Park has Norway’s largest number of wild reindeers living in their natural habitat with a total of 4,000 animals? Reindeers have had Rondane as their living area for over 15,000 years. This is just about as long as Norway has been populated by humans. The reindeers have been hunted by the people living here from the first humans came to this area about 2,000 years ago.
Rondane’s landscape with wide valleys, high mountains and distinctive blue lights has inspired a number of Norwegian artists and writers of which the painter Harald Sohlberg’s “Winter Night in Rondane” is among the most famous. Composer Edvard Grieg also found inspiration for some of his most famous national romantic compositions in the Rondane and Dovre area.
Rondane National Park was established in 1962, as Norway’s first national park. In 2003 the national park was expanded and is now 963 square km. There are ten mountains above 2000 meters. The tallest is the majestic Rondeslottet mountain stretching 2178 m above sea level and which our hotel is named after.
The hotel itself is located at 930 meters above sea level between the Raphamhø, Holtjønnpiggen, Åbbortjønnknatten mountains and the valleys towards Uldalen and Kirstidalen.
