Lågendelta nature reserve is a nature reserve in Lillehammer municipality in Oppland. The nature reserve was established in 1990 to "maintain an important and especially wetland area in its natural state with vegetation and wildlife, and to protect a particularly rich and interesting birdlife.

The Lågen delta is one of Norway's largest domestic delta, and the nature reserve extends from the municipal border to the Øyer munipality of the north to about two kilometers south of Vingnes bridge. Besides the river and the lake, the area includes all islands and some beach parties, but excluding some coves near Vingnes and the town. The reserve is also connected to animal conservation area, which comprises the cultivated land on the west bank along Jørstadmoen village.

Lågendeltaet Naturreservat (Lågen River Delta Nature Reserve) is one of Norway’s largest inland deltas and a very important migration location in Eastern Norway. This reserve reaches from the border of the municipality northwards towards Øyer and about two kilometres south of Vingnesbrua (Vingnes Bridge). In the spring, when the water is low, many waders, ducks and other migrating species rest in this delta.

Lillehammer has a very special bird watching tower at Lågendeltaet, designed by Bjørn Horten in RAM architecture. The building is meant for bird watching. Remember to bring binoculars. Good trip!
