Stor-Svuku (1421 masl) is centrally located in the national park and offers fantastic views over Femunden lake and towards Sweden and Rondane.

The trip starts from Svukuriset tourist cabin and it is 5.7 km to the summit. It is a steady climb, which makes it a family-friendly trip. You can walk or cycle to Svukuriset from the approach in Elgå. From Svukuriset, visitors pass through a Sámi cultural landscape. If you are lucky enough to see reindeer, try to stay still and enjoy the sight. You will pass Falkfangerhøgda and there are still nesting birds of prey in the area.

In the far northeast of Femundsmarka lies Storviglen (1561 masl), which is the highest peak in the national park. Here, you get the feeling of being in a mighty mountain range offering magnificent views.

The trip starts at Ljøsnåvollen, which offers dining and accommodation during the summer months. The road to the farm is closed to motorized traffic, but offers good cycling opportunities. From the farm, you follow the T-marked path along the river northeast towards Vauldalen. Eventually, the landscape flattens out and you follow the winter waymarkers through long sections of boulder fields. At the foot of the peak, there is an unmarked path up to the cairn. The trip is approximately 7 km from Ljøsnåvollen. During the winter, the ski trail starts from Feragen or Vauldalen.

Elgåhogna (1460 masl), located in the far south of Femundsmarka, is Engerdal’s highest peak. There is a waymarked trail to the summit with a climb of 700 meters.

Dalset is the most common starting point, and there is parking by the county road a couple of kilometers south of Elgå. From here, it is a 5.2 km walk along the waymarked path to the summit. If the visibility is good, you can see the whole of Femunden lake from the summit. You are now in the heart of the Southern Sámi reindeer herding area, so show consideration when meeting reindeer. They are particularly vulnerable to disturbances from Midsummer Day to 15 July in connection with calf marking.
