Mjøsa - Norways inland sea

"I can live anywhere in the world, as long as I see Mjøsa." This is a saying among the inhabitants of Hedemarken and Toten, the main landscapes surrounding this large lake.

Mjøsa is by no means a large lake, internationally. Its length from south to north is around 70 miles, and it is 10 miles wide close to the city of Hamar. Still it provides the cities of Hamar, Lillehammer and Gjøvik with a kind of a sea view and even a harbour area. At Hamar they have even created a beach area where you can rest and enjoy a swim during summer.

For those of you that plan to visit Norway, Mjøsa and fertile districts around it , is absolutely worth seeing. Here you find some of the largest farms in the country, some as large as mansions, and there are many old churches and other sights to visit.
