Østerdalen one of the major valleys in eastern Norway. It lies between Gudbrandsdalen to the west and the Swedish border to the east.
Østerdalen has some of the country's best rivers for grayling and trout fishing. The rivers vary in character, and feature waterfalls, rapids and deep pools as well as long stretches of slow-flowing water. Tarns and lakes with trout, grayling and Arctic char offer excellent fishing, and are ideal for family outings.
Activities such as dog sledding, canoeing, kayaking, fishing or animal tracking are offered by Spydspissen Wilderness Adventures. Spend the night in a basic log cabin by a mountain lake, and enjoy some peace and quiet with only your fishing rod as company. Ecotourism is important to Spydspissen Wilderness Adventures, and activities are designed to minimise impact on the environment.
Rendalen Mountain Riding offers adventures on horseback ranging from half-day to four-day trips with overnight stays at mountain farms or in cabins. The Rendalen Mountain Riding experiences also include traditional food from Østerdalen.
Renåfjellet Alpine Centre is a family-friendly skiing resort with three downhill runs. It is also an ideal starting point for cross-country skiing, as well as bicycle rides and mountain hikes during the summer season. At 850 metres altitude, on Renåfjellet mountain, you will find a large swimming lake teeming with people on warm summer days.
