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 local mountains offer breathtaking mountain expanses, as well as mountain peaks with spectacular views. Marked rambling trails have been established throughout the area to guide you through the best Norwegian nature has to offer. Picturesque mountain farm communities and shiny lakes dot the landscape.

Rambling trails


The Norwegian Mountain Touring Association has designed and marked a wide range of trails in varying terrain in the Nordseter, Sjusjøen and Øyer mountains. The landscape is featured by gentle mountain slopes, rounded hills, and mountain plateaus. The terrain is ideal for walking. All the main trails are marked with a red "T".

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.
