An old route
In 1886 a shipping company was established at Røros. Their first steamboat S/S Fæmund had her first trip on the lake in 1887.
There has been regular boat traffic on Femund since then.
The first boat was a 60 feet long wooden vessel named “Fæmund”. However , this was too small for the towing of timber, so in 1905 the new steel ship, 82 feet long was put on water, and named Fæmund II. Today – more than 100 years later, we have the same boat running – quite an elderly lady!
