THE HAMAR REGION

Rural idyll by Lake Mjøsa

Scroll down for inspiration, or plan your trip now.

Here, you can glide across Lake Mjøsa in the world’s oldest operative paddle steamer Skibladner ...

… and fill your days with high-speed or relaxing activities by Norway’s biggest lake.

The Hamar region offers both action and relaxation.

Daydream away in the lush gardens at Hovelsrud Gård or one of the many other lovely and welcoming eateries and farm stays on Helgøya island

Snilsberg Familiepark may be the greenest family park in Norway and is located in Ringsaker with beautiful views across Lake Mjøsa.

Along the long nature trail, you’ll encounter animals like hens, bottle-fed lambs, goats, calves, ponies, pigs, and peacocks.

Everything is possible by Lake Mjøsa. Like building the highest wooden house in the world, for example.


Wood Hotel is all of 86 metres tall! The hotel is 18 stories high and is in a beautiful location by the lake shore in Brumunddal.

Follow the St. Olav's Ways along small country roads in Stange Vestbygd.


Does the hilly landscape of green meadows and proud farms seem familiar? It’s been dubbed ‘the Tuscany or the North’.

Set aside time to stop by the charming produce stands and farm shops along the road.

Local produce doesn’t get more local than this!

Hamar was a centre of power as far back as the Viking Age, and the city’s museum is just as impressive as the region’s rich history. Travel + Leisure named Domkirkeodden one of the world’s most beautiful museums in its awards.

Enjoy the acoustics when the museum’s singing guides chime in with Gregorian chants.

Get nostalgic at The Norwegian Railway Museum with the scent of steam from historic vintage trains. Hop aboard the Tertittoget train at Smålå station for a ride through the railway park.

Choo choo!

Ilsengstiene has even been awarded the title of Norway’s most beautiful trail!
During winter, there almost as many kilometres of skiing trails.

Far out on the white gold on the majestic Hedmarksvidda mountain plateau – enjoy an orange from your pack or a waffle at a staffed cabin.

Or maybe you would rather get behind the wheel at Norway’s biggest sledge riding centre at Budor? Take the sledge lift up again for another ride.

Yeehaw!
