Fishing 2


Pike, perch or trout – we offer a wide variety of fishing options. With easy access to Mjøsa and Randsfjorden, two of Norway’s biggest lakes, we offer numerous fishing possibilities. There are 20 different fish species in lake Mjøsa alone, and Mjøsa is just one of many alternatives.

Just under an hour and a half from Gardermoen airport, and two hours from Oslo, you will find the inland fishing region Gjøvik Land Toten. Within a radius of 50 kilometres of Gjøvik town centre, you can choose from a wide variety of fishing adventures. In addition to Mjøsa and Randsfjorden, there are also lake Einavatnet, the rivers of Lenaelva and Hunnselva as well as numerous small and big lakes, ponds, rivers and streams. Catching a one-metre pike, or hooking large trout, is definitely within the realms of possibility.

”Year round fishing” is also possible as we offer ice fishing in many of our lakes.

As a general rule, fishing is permitted from 1 May – 1 September, except in lake Randsfjorden where fishing is permitted all year round.  There are no dates for when ice fishing is permitted as it depends on waterways being frozen.
