Folldal was separated from the municipality of Alvdal in 1914.The Rørosbane railway line passes through Alvdal.General informationNameThe Old Norse form of the name was (øfri) Elfardalr (meaning "(upper) river valley"). The first element is the genitive case of elfr which means "river" (here the Glomma river) and the last element is dalr which means "valley" or "dale".Prior to 1918, the municipality was called Lille-Elvdalen ("the small Elvdalen") to distinguish it from Store Elvedalen ("the big Elvedalen") which is now called Stor-Elvdal.Add Alvdal and other destinations in Norway to your travel itinerary using our Norway trip planner.
