Its extensive forest and a host of walking, hunting and fishing options right on your doorstep makes Elverum well worth a visit for nature-lovers.
The town of Elverum is set amid the vast and lush green timberlands of the southern part of Hedmark county. Many come here to enjoy the closeness to nature, but Elverum also offers an abundance of cultural history, including two of the country’s most important open-air museums: Glomdalsmuseet and The Norwegian Forest Museum.
The Norwegian Forest Museum has a national responsibility to present the wilderness industries of hunting, trapping, fishing and forestry. It lies in attractive natural surroundings beside the Glomma river and is visited by more than 110,000 people every year.
Elverum can offer a wealth of nature based activities all year round. Renaelva and Glomma are well-known rivers for fishing, while the Finnskogen forest provides ideal opportunities for cycling and walking, with a well-developed network of forest tracks.
Mention cross-country skiing and the Elverum region, and most people will immediately think of the annual Birkebeiner ski race, a 54 kilometre long race between Rena and Lillehammer. However, winter in the Elverum region is not just for “Birkebeiners”. There are many kilometres of great cross-country skiing tracks to choose from, and at Rena Alpine and Ski Centre you can enjoy several family-friendly downhill slopes.
If you are curious about Norwegian and Nordic art, Elverum has a handful of galleries that are well worth visiting, including the Elverum Art Gallery.There are several options for getting to Elverum.
