The Forollhogna mountains Forollhogna National Park is the kingdom of the great reindeer bucks! Forollhogna is often associated with impressive antlers and large reindeer. The reindeer bucks here are larger than no other place in Norway. That says something about how rich and viable this mountain region is for all other life. In the open and virtually unspoilt landscape, on the border between Hedmark and Sor-Trondelag counties, you'll find a rich variety of plants and animals. In the neighbouring valleys traditional mountain farming is thriving. Mountain villages and living summer farms in Forollhogna In the spring time farmers move their families and animals up to the mountain farms for ecologic production of milk and meat. They are surrounded by a breathtaking landscape. When visiting them, you may enjoy the healthy silence or take part in the work. These farms are many centuries old and are still in use, giving you fine opportunities to see traditional farming up close. At some of them, tasty traditional fare will heighten your enjoyment wild trout, sour cream porridge, curd and molske, or perhaps an exciting meal prepared from the season's choice ingredients. Activities all seasons At some of the mountain farms you may stay overnight and possible combine this with others activities like hiking, wildlife spotting, biking, photo safaris, horse riding, fishing or just pure relaxation! In wintertime activities like skiing in the outback, husky safaris, reindeer and horse sleigh rides, snowshoeing and history-telling will give you the perfect adventure holiday. When visiting Forollhogna we also recommend visiting the world heritage mining town Roros. How to get there? Train from Oslo, Hamar, Trondheim no Roros Airport, www.rfly.no By car from (aprox. in time): Oslo - 4-4,5 hours Trondheim – 1,5-2,5 hours You don't need a 4x4 vehicle to visit. All open roads are well suited for normal cars. Some mountain roads are closed during winter, due to rich snow conditions! Visitors info There is no fees to enter the National Park and the surroundings. Only fee is local taxes for driving on private mountain roads (aprox. 30-50 NOK). There is also a national park centre in Kvikne (Tynset).

Wonderful protected area, with a strong wild reindeer population. Herds can be spotted if you're lucky. Good trout and char fishing in some of the many lakes and rivers. Relatively easy mountains to move around, with sloping hills and plains, plus a few mountains and...More
