M/S Fæmund has the total of 5 stops on the east side of the lake and 3 on the west side. Join us for a memorable boat trip. The stops along the route are also starting points for trips in and around Femundsmarka national park.
Femundsmarka National Park
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.
Synnervika is located in the northern part of Femunden, and is the main pier for MS Fæmund II. You will arrive by car or bus from Røros in about 40 minutes. There is a parking lot a few hundred meters from the dock.
M/S Femund II travels on daily basis all summer from Synnervika in the north to Elgå and back.
The company has its quarters for the crew and warehouses at Synnervika, where the ship is pulled up for the winter.
The first place we come to on our trip is Røa, on the east side of the lake. The river Røa is very popular, and this is the most visited area of the nationalpark. One hour walk from the dock you find Røvollen- a self-service cabin run by the Norwegian trekking association.
The next stop is on the west side, Femundshytten, Originally a settlement from the mining period. Cabins for rent.
The tourist trail from Femundshytten and back to Synnervika is a very beautiful and popular trail, and takes 4-5 hours.
From Femundshytten we cross the lake over to Haugen on the east side. Anglers going in to the eastern part of the nationalpark usually start from here. Accomodation options are available.
