M/S FÆMUND II takes you along the “inland sea” of Femunden, offering many exciting experiences for nature lovers of all ages. Bring your bike on board and combine it with great rides in Femundsmarka and the surrounding areas.

The trip with the Femund boat is an experience in itself, with fantastic views over Femundsmarka National Park.

The accessible terrain offers many great hiking opportunities for both young and old, ranging from day trips to multi-day excursions.

Between Østerdalen and Femunden, there are many roads with little traffic and gentle slopes, and a visit to the mining town of Røros, listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, is a memorable experience.

There are several remnants of mining activities along Femunden as well. At Femundshytta, you can see the walls of 30 smelting furnaces, large slag heaps, and the remains of many houses that stood here when ore was smelted from 1744 to 1822.

Note that cycling is not allowed in the national park itself, except for: Feragen – Ljøsnåvollen Langen – Nordvika – Svartvika Elgå – Svukuriset

You ride on a gravel road all the way to the cabin, a little over 10 km one way.
