Leirvassbu Lodge

Lodge in Jotunheimen National Park

Run by the same family as the Elvesæter Hotel, this typically Norwegian mountain lodge sits at an altitude of 1400m, hunkered down beside Lake Leirvatnet. It's predominantly a walking and skiing base, and its 100-odd rooms get full up in the height of the season. You can save some krone by opting for a shared bathroom.

Note that there's a toll road to reach the hotel.
