Formed in 1971 to protect the lake, forests, marshes and mountain peaks of the area around Femunden. This 573-sq-km park is often overlooked by foreign tourists – despite the fact that it’s been named one of the three best hiking areas in Norway.
The area, situated between the border with Sweeden and the cities of Trysil and Røros, has 67 mountain peaks and two national parks, Femundsmarka and Gutulia. Hiking, canoeing and cycling hardly become more family-friendly than here.
Flyfishing in the rivers is popular. In addition, there are more than 900 beatiful waters and Norway’s third biggest lake “Femunden”, trafficked by the ferry M/S Fæmund II built as early as 1904. Here ant in other waters you can expect fish species like trout, char, grayling, whitefish, perch and pike.
