Plan your trip to the Hamar region

Experience one of the world’s most beautiful museums, visit traditional farms among the rolling hills, go biking or skiing – or just take a dive into the Lake Mjøsa.

The Hamar region is one of the most fertile agricultural areas in Norway, so naturally the region has a rich history.

Pop by a farm shop or two among the rolling hills. Many of the farms here can trace their roots back to the Viking age. Visit Domkirkeodden, where Europe’s largest glass building surrounds and protects the 950 year old Hamardomen, hailed by Travel + Leisure Magazine as one of the most beautiful museums in the world. Or indulge in the art of slow travel on the oldest paddle steamer in the world, the Skibladner.
 

The Hamar region is also full of fun for families. In the beach area Koigen, right by the Hamar city centre, you will find both a family-friendly beach as well as a quite spectacular diving tower. If you want more action, you can join a RIB safari, go kayaking or try out the climbing park.

For nature lovers, the forests and low mountains around Hamar can offer almost unlimited hiking opportunities.

Find more inspiration on the Hamar region’s official website.
