Experience Engerdal – where Nature is a way of life!
A true nature-paradise Engerdal is home to pristine glacial lakes, virgin forests and ancient hills. We in Engerdal welcome all who wish to share the beauty, the calm and the drama of nature with us.
Engerdal is one of the few kommunes in Norway that is a designated National Park Kommune. A nature-wonderland Engerdal offers year round outdoor activities for the nature enthusiast. Home to three large lakes including Norway's third largest lake, Femund, and with scores of rivers and tarns – the waters in Engerdal teem with trout, pike, perch and grayling.
Norway's southernmost population of the Sami people reside in Engerdal and still practice reindeer herding so be prepared to come across the occasional herd of wild reindeer grazing by the roadside.
The Femundsmarka National Park is also part of Engerdal Kommune
