Femundsmarka National Park, Roros

4.8
#2 of 10 in Nature in Central Norway
Femundsmarka National Park is a national park in Norway. The landscape is largely marshes and lakes . It is a popular destination for canoeing and fishing. The park was formed in 1971 to protect the lake and the forests stretching eastwards to Sweden. Indeed, the landscapes here are more Swedish in appearance than recognisably Norwegian. The forest is sparse and consists of craggy pine and birch.The park has long been a source of falcons for use in the European and Asian sport of falconry and several places in the park are known as Falkfangerhøgda, or "falcon hunters’ height". There are also wild reindeer grazing in the heights and, in summer, a herd of around 30 musk oxen roam the area along the Røa and Mugga Rivers . This group split off from an older herd in the Dovrefjell area and migrated here.The National Park influenced the name of the album Femundsmarka of the German black metal band Waldgeflüster.

  • Very beautiful scenery. Around the lake there is a nice path that is easy to walk on. It takes a half day to walk around the lake at a leisurely pace. There are several geocaches in the area. Magnificent view from the mountain.

  • Stoppet ved Langen gjestegård og gikk en tur inn til fløterennene. Snilt og greit turterreng, om enn litt kjedelig. Kjørte etterpå en tur til Synnervika og så båten legge til kaj.  more »

  • Amazing forest, suitable for every age!:) Good for fishing, bird and animal watching as well as just hiking and tenting.
  • At Femundsmarka, Less than a days traveling off the Norwegian capital a region can be found, which has an abundance of nature to offer. Here - in the area of Engerdal - one of the big lakes of the country is situated. By the banks of Femund lake, and around in the woods of Gutulia and wild forests as well as in Femundsmarkas bare land up the timberline moose, lux and volverine can be met, with a good bit of luck even the hidden brown bear. Reindeer will cross your path and - along the many creeks, streams, and rivers - one might discover here and there a beaver. Femundsmarka National Park is one of the largest continuous, unspoilt wilderness regions in Southern Scandinavia. A great area for canoeing and fishing. The Norwegian Trekking Association has selected it as one of the three best hiking areas in Norway.
