Explore nature in a lush mountain valley, enjoy the view from the mountains, and get in close contact with wild animals such as bears, lynx, and moose in Bjørneparken.

Flå is the gateway to the Hallingdal valley if you come from the south. The small village in Eastern Norway has around 1100 inhabitants and offers wild and beautiful nature.

Flå’s main attraction is the Bjørneparken animal park, where you can experience wild animals such as bears, lynx, foxes, wolves, and moose in their natural habitat. The park also has a big crocodile land where you can see snakes, alligators, and crocodiles, as well as two Amur leopards – the world’s rarest feline!

With several play areas, a centre for predators with interactive exhibitions, an obstacle course, and a separate water playground, Bjørneparken is a sure winner for adventurous families with children.

In winter, Flå is a paradise for cross-country skiers. In summer you can fish, hike, and enjoy the view from the top of Mount Høgevarde, which is in a league of its own, all year round.

The vast, forested mountain valley Vassfaret is full of lakes, roaring waterfalls, steep slopes, and mountain peaks. From Lake Øyvatn there is a 16-kilometre long nature and culture trail, which is well suited for the whole family.

Find more inspiration on Flå’s official website (Norwegian only).
