Femundsmarka National Park Visitor Center
In the small hamlet of Elgå, in Engerdal municipality, you will find the Femundsmarka and Gutulia National Park Visitor Center. Elgå is the southern approach to Femundsmarka National Park as well as the port of call for the Fæmund II ferry service. On the way here, you also drive past Gutulia – Norway’s smallest national park. Our staff can help you with tips and advice on which local attractions you should visit, and can point out many great hiking destinations in the local area.
At the exhibition, you can learn more about Femundsmarka and Gutulia by immersing yourself in local history, wildlife and Southern Sámi reindeer husbandry. Outside, visitors can follow an adventure trail that leads down to the pier and Fæmund II, or you can frolic between the trees in the natural playground. Admission to the center is free of charge, though you need a ticket to visit the exhibition.
All teaching at the visitor center is free of charge for kindergartens and school classes. We can help you put together a plan that suits your needs. Relevant topics are primeval forests, ancient forests and the wilderness, as well as considerate outdoor life. Get in touch to hear about coming to the Visitor Center, or to book our nature guide to visit your school.
