Welcome to Fondsbu

Fondsbu is one of the most popular huts in Jotunheimen mountains, located at the lake of Bygdin in the historic place of Eidsbugarden. You will be welcomed by a friendly and familylike atmosphere, and the sound of laughter, the delicious scent of local produce being prepared for the next meal and warmth.

There is trout in the lake, tarns and rivers, an eagle might glide over you, or a grouse be startled. There is amazing view in any direction - and should you search for it, you will perhaps find what you might be looking for more than anything: your true self somewhere inside the sound of silence.
