Hiking in the mountains
The Øyer and Lillehammer mountains are excellent for walks, and the pleasant terrain makes it possible for the whole family to take a trip for some hours, a day or even more.
The Øyer mountains consists of the mountain area between Gudbrandsdalen and Østerdalen. Total area approximately 43.000 hectare of which approximately 20.000 hectare are above the tree line.
There are still about 30 farms working in the Øyer mountains, and they are worth a look. There are well developed and marked footpath networks both down in the valley and in the Øyer mountains. You can get some suggestions where to walk at Lillehammer Tourist office.
