Lågendelta nature reserve is a nature reserve in Lillehammer municipality in Oppland. The 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."

Lågendeltaet nature reserve extends from the Lillehammer municipality border to the Øyer minicipality the north to about two kilometers south of Vingnes bridge. The area is very important as a razing and pasture area for many bird species. In the spring and summer of 2015, 12 species of ducks were observed.

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.
