The Elverum region
The Elverum region is a paradise for nature enthusiasts. Finnskogen forest is right on our doorstep, tempting you with many beautiful hiking areas and great opportunities for hunting and fishing in the deep forests. It’s easy to explore the area around Elverum, with its many marked bike routes and hiking trails. Finnskogleden, a 240-kilometre long path close to the border between Norway and Sweden, is a very popular path through the nature and culture of the border area. You can also hike one of Norway’s most majestic mountain areas by following the Rondane national tourist route, starting in the cosy town of Sollia. In the winter, there are miles upon miles of cross-country ski trails, and on your ski trip we recommend you take a break at one of the cosy cabin cafes.
The Valer churches consist of 3 unique churches and are just some of the popular attractions in the region of Elverum. One of them, Valer Kirke, is the largest wooden church in Europe. If you want some speed and excitement, then the Valerbanen race track is the place for you. Sørlistøa fløtermuseum, Norsk Elgsenter and Storelgen (the world’s largest elk) are sights well worth visiting. You should also visit Norway’s third largest open-air museum, the Norwegian Forest Museum, which is nationally responsible for the wilderness sectors including hunting, catching, fishing, forests, forestry and forest management. The museum offers something for the whole family.
Elverum, Stor-Elvdal, Valer and Amot offer a wide range of restaurants, coffee shops, roadside restaurants and cafes with a varied food and beverage offer. We recommend a visit to our restaurant Jaktlaget at Scandic Elgstua, where we’re continuing the rich food traditions of Elgstua. We serve elk in a variety of forms, in addition to many other delicious dishes. Restaurant Jaktlaget can be hired if you’re looking for a great place for your event.
