Overview

Fetsund lenser Experience the national cultural heritage site of the only timber boom facility in Norway. Learn about the work and life of the once largest industries in Norway’s history. Situated outside Fetsund in the river Glomma, the facility spans 2.5 km with exhibits and historical buildings spread across. With full access to the water based facility you have the option of “walking on water” on the floating paths used by thousands every year. The museum café serves its signature fishburger made from pike and you can find local souvenirs in the museum shop. Arranging your next group meeting or event is possible in these historical surroundings. Wetlands visitor center Nordre Øyeren Situated in near vicinity to Fetsund lenser and the nature reserve Nordre Øyeren, the wetland visitor center offers exciting and family friendly exhibits and activities about the local fauna and flora. Open every weekend of the year and free entrance, this is a popular destination for thousands yearly. Outside the center is a small island, Blikomøya, where you can explore and enjoy yourself with a fire pit and nature trail. You can also find a café and a small shop in the center with nature related products.
