Welcome to Dovrefjell national park! Hjerkinn Fjellstue og Fjellridning have long traditions hosting travellers, and we have provided friendly, high-quality accommodation for hikers and visitors for 1200 years. It is the 12th, 13th and 14th generation of the Hjerkind family that welcomes you to their home!
Sleep well in crisp mountain air
One or several nights in fresh, crisp mountain air is good for you! We have hotel rooms, apartments, a pilegrim hut and camping facilities. You can eat at our restaurant or cater for yourself, whatever you prefer.
The rooms in the hotel were built in 1992 and renovated in 2012. We have four single rooms and 22 double rooms situated in the main building, next to the reception and restaurant. The rooms include breakfast, bed linen and towels, as well as a private bathroom with shower and wc, TV, and free wifi.
The annex have 12 apartments built in 2014, and are available to rent all year round. Each unit have 1-2 bedrooms with family bunk beds (150 cm lower berth and 90 cm upper berth), bathroom, kitchen, living room, free wifi and a common porch with a jaccuzzi. For the apartments you can either bring your own or rent bed linen and towels. End cleaning can be booked unless you want to clean after yourself.
Our camping facilities have room for 40 caravans or tents, spread between three levels, overlooking the horses, mountains and Hjerkinndammen. Power points are found on each level, and shower facilities and kitchen are placed in a sanitary house.
The pilegrim hut is a small, cosy timber hut situated between the reception and the camping facilities. It contains five beds and has electricity. Showers, wc and a small kitchen is found in the camping facilities nearby. The pilegrim hut is for those travelling alone on a budget and wish to share accomodation.
We are situated in the middle of Norway and have the mountains on our doorstep, with high altitude tops and quiet valleys. Great experiences are everywhere!
The Pilegrim route travels through our courtyard, and there are many hiking routes. Places for overnight accomodation in Dovrefjell, Rondane and Dovrefjell national park are situated one day hike from us.
The musk ox is the most exotic creature you can meet at Dovrefjell. We recommend a guided trip, either on foot, arranged every day in the summer season by our neighbours at Hjerkinnhus or Furuhaugli, or on horseback every Saturday by us.
Hjerkinn Fjellstue and Fjellriding is the only place in the world offering musk ox safari on horseback!
Horseback riding at Hjerkinn 2020
We ride across mountain plains, climb mountain peaks overlooking the Rondane and Dovre Mountains, cross rivers and follow peaceful trails through the birch forest. On saturdays we ride on a safari to look for musk ox and horses grazing on the mountain pastures.
We have trips for beginners and experienced riders, adults and children (minimum age 10). Every day we devide the participants into smaller groups based on experience/desired speed. You get to groom and saddle your horse yourself, and to amble, trot ant canter, if you wish.
You can participate in a day-trip or stay for several days. We offer horseback riding every day, except Mondays, from June 13 to August 16 and weekends until September 27. Bring lunch and a beverage every day. Helmet and saddle bags are included.
