Otersteinen

The #3 biggest free lying stone in Norway. The volume is approx 500 m3. The height is 18 meters. There are some very old trees growing on it, so there it looks like the top of the head of a troll! Take a exploring walk behind it as well, into a real "troll forest"... A perfect place for picnics and photo shooting! 

Nekfallet

A great and spectacular waterfall, 75 m of height -  a "must see" if you are in the area.  It takes a little walk: 10 -15 minutes down into the valley, and then you're there - enjoy!  (Toll road kr 40) 

Nature reserves           

Geographically Rendalen is the biggest municipality in Southern Norway: 3 178 square kilometers. Topographic, above sea level (asl): from 251 meters (lake Storsjøen) to 1755 m. asl (summit mountain Sølen). That means we have an exciting specter of scandinavian boreal flora and fauna, some lakes, flat lands with agriculture, steep hills, forests, fells and high mountains. All this you can experience in Rendalen - Almost without meeting any other people on the paths! Or you can hire a guide, if it is your first time exploring like this. We have a numerous nature reserves in different topographic levels and with different biotopic characteristics.
