The main population centre and administrative center is the village of Åmli which lies along the river Nidelva.General informationNameThe municipality is named after the old Åmli farm, since the first church was built there. The first element is almr which means "elm" and the last element is líð which means "hillside". The name was previously spelled Omlid and Aamli.Coat-of-armsThe coat-of-arms is from modern times. The arms were granted in 1987. It shows a silver beaver on a blue background. Odd Einar Ufsvatn was the designer. The beaver was chosen because the Åmli area is one of the few remaining beaver habitats in Europe, and beavers from Norway have been used to help re-populate other areas in Europe where the beaver had gone extinct in the wild.HistoryThe parish of Omlid was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838 . In 1876, the area of Mykland was separated from it to become a separate municipality. This left Åmli with 2,564 inhabitants.

This left Åmli with 2,024 residents.Find what you're looking for from your Amli holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Norway route planner.
