Svullrya Things to Do

  • Guided tours

    Can be arranged by any of the accomodations mentioned, or at Glåmdal Reiseliv:P.S. Do you notice the guide's hat? It is made of tangled wool, it is so tightly tangled (with a fatty soap), that it is water proof! I will take a picture of mine and list under shoppingtips :-)

  • Sport and recreation

    There are so many things to do in this area that I cannot write a tip about each and every one: fishing, hiking / walking, camping, canoeing / kayaking, biking, horseriding, rafting, climbing, skiing, ..., ...I suggest you contact one of the accomodations I have listed or Glåmdal Reiseliv:

  • Museums of the Forest Finn culture

    Several of the old crofts in Finnskogen are preserved and possible to visit. I have mentioned Mullikkala under restaurant tips, since it is a combined museum and restaurant.Finnetunet Museum is open the last two weekends of june and every day in july, or at request.Other museums in the area:- Gruetunet Museum in Kirkenær- Norsk Skogfinsk museum in...


Svullrya Restaurants

  • Lacto vegetarian

    The restaurant is buffet style with lacto-vegetarian food + white meat and fish. It is a part of the spa, but it is possible to stop by just for a meal. I don't have a specific favourite dish, it was all delicious!

  • Museum and resaturant

    A terrific combination of a museum and a restaurant, serving traditional Finnish dishes. The owner Else is very knowledgeable and a good storyteller.

    Locals go to Sweden to shop, a lot of things are chaper there. And Sweden is not far away, appr. 12 km from Svullrya :-)

    What to buy: Bear meat (not allowed to shoot bears in Norway), cigarettes and beer. If you want to buy booze or wine, you must either go to Torsby, an hours drive or so, or you could order it a day ahead at Sundelin's. NB! there are restrictions as to how much you are allowed to bring over the border, Sundelin knows all about it :-)

    What to pay: Less than in Norway

Svullrya Local Customs

  • Utilizing all parts of an animal II

    This is a sieve made of the skin of a cow's udder. The teats are still on it :-)(Hm, will this be censored, too?)

  • Utilizing all parts of an animal I

    The whip lying on this table is called "peis", which means ox ***, and that is exactly what it is. The tissue is strong and elastic, and makes a very good whip. I don't know whether the Finns brought the custom of making whips of ox penises, or whether it was known in Norway before the arrived. (Actualley, Finns have been living a lot longer in...

    Finnskogleden is a 240 km long walk / hike on both sides of the norwegian / swedish border, from Morokulien southeast of Kongsvinger to Søre Osen in Trysil. It is an easy walk, but far between houses and stores. Water in streams along the track is potable.

    You don't have to walk all the way. Several roads cross the track, one of them is the road 201 from Svullrya. (See linked map). Bring your own tent, or stay in one of the camps, cabins, farms or B&Bs along the way

    Equipment: You dont't need fancy equipment, good shoes or boots and clothes to keep you warm and dry is enough. The best treking period is june to september. NB! Moose hunting in october!
