Jørgenbue is a very small hut built into the mountainside above Mysusæter in Rondane. It is a perfect place to go if you just want a small hike from Mysusæter and get some great views of Rondane National Park.
Jørgenbue is always open so you can go inside, fire up the woodstove and make yourself some coffee. But the hut is very small so it will only fit 2-3 people.
If you climb right above Jørgenbue there is some really great views of Rondane National Park and a nice bench where you can sit and soak it all in. Also, there is a small pond there with some small boats where the kids can play while you relax.
If you have a car you can drive from Otta and up to Mysusæter. When you get close to Mysusæter, you will find Rondane Hotel on your right-hand side. You can ask if it is ok to park your car there or continue for about 500 more meters and park your car behind Musysæter Servicesenter.
Take the train to Otta and the bus from Otta to Mysusæter. Usually, there is one bus in the morning and one in the afternoon. Check out the timetables at Opplandstrafikk.no or call them(+47 61 28 90 00) if it is hard to find the correct departure times.
From Mysusæter Servicesenter follow the gravel road up towards the downhill slope. Follow the road to the right after the first cabin and up to the gate in the fence. Go through this gate and follow the trail across the pasture. Sometimes there are cows in this area.
On the other side of the pasture, go through the gate and onto the gravel road on the other side. Follow this road up the hill and soon you will see a small wooden sign with the letter J for Jørgenbue. Follow this gravel road to the right which eventually ends up in a trail going past some cabins.
On the other side of this trail, you get to another gravel road. Follow the signs and the road going up the hill to the left. Eventually this road stop by a cabin on your right-hand side. Just before this cabin make sure you follow the trail to the left instead of going up to the cabin itself.
From here just follow the trail, you will cross a small creek and after that go up the last hill before you reach Jørgenbue.
The trail is well signed all the way so it should be easy to find.
