Numerous lakes, pristine waters, vast wilderness areas and cosy accommodation. Gjøvik is a winter paradise for ice fishing enthusiasts.
In winter time most of the lakes in Norway are frozen. But that does not mean that the fish are not there. You just need to get under the thick layer of ice by drilling holes in the ice - anywhere on the lake.
Gjøvik and the surrounding areas have many waters to choose from - and don't be surprised if you are the only one out there, waiting to get a 50 centimetre long perch or a 5 kilo trout on the hook. You can also try your luck for char, whitefish and burbot.
Spend the night in a cosy cabin, in a hotel or at a campsite.
Plenty of ice fishing opportunities on 6 lakes within a walking distance. Abundance of perch, pike and trout. The Lakes Einavatnet and Mjøsa are just minutes away by car. You can purchase your fishing license for NOK 100 / week.
