Memurubu Tourist Lodge is idyllic located under Besseggen next to Gjende. Memurubu is located between Gjendesheim and Gjendebu, with Besseggen and Bukkelægeret on each side.

Memurubu is by origin a old farm that has been in use for over 100 years, but the farming operation is retired by now. Today, Memurubu is a modern tourist lodge with good comfort, local food and renewable electricity from its own hydropower plant.

We have about 150 beds divided into rooms of different sizes – many of them with private bathroom and toilet. In addition, there is also a nice campsite for those who wish to stay in a tent.

Memurubu is a great base for experiencing some of the most magnificent hikes in Jotunheimen.


In the mountain restaurant we serve breakfast and a three-course dinner. Breakfast is usually served from 07.30 to 09.00. If we have many guests, breakfast can start earlier. The breakfast buffet consists of food that prepares you for a good day in the mountains, for example homemade wholemeal bread, oatmeal and a good selection of cheeses, jams, fish and cold meats.

Pack a solid lunch for the trip, and fill the thermos with hot water, tea or coffee. A 3-course dinner is usually served at 19.00 On the busiest summer days we have two table settings – the first at 18.00 and the second at 20.00. In our mountain cafe, we offer coffee, cinnamon buns, snacks, chocolate and drinks.
