This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Gjøvik.

Guess what? Gjøvik is also named and spelled Gjoevik - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.

Nestled along the banks of Lake Mjosa, Norway’s largest lake, the scenic Norwegian town of Gjøvik is home to the world’s biggest arena excavated in rock, Gjøvik Olympic Hall. The arena was one of the sites used for the Lillehammer Winter Olympics ice hockey games during the event in 1994. However, this town offers plenty more for tourists to check out during a visit here.

Gjøvik’s economy is primarily driven by glasswork, so visitors here should make a point to explore some of the galleries, stores, and workshops to see some of these handiworks. Gjøvik farm is also a well-frequented attraction, as well as the Elktunet cultural-history museum.

From your hostel or hotel in Gjøvik, you’ll also be able to see the world’s oldest paddle steamer that still operates on a regular schedule, the PS Skibladner. The steamer sails on Lake Mjosa, and offers scenic tours and other cultural events during the summer months. Named for the ship of Freyr in Norse mythology, Skibladner also has a Norwegian nickname, “Mjosa’s white swan.”

Accommodations here are quite varied, with hostels and hotels, bed and breakfasts, guesthouses, and holiday rentals. A hotel or hostel here gives tourists the opportunity to immerse themselves in the local culture and indulge in some of the natural local ingredients thanks to Gjøvik’s location in one of Norway’s largest agricultural areas – fish, meat, and vegetables prepared according to local culinary traditions.

Travelers can also take advantage of more than 1,500 km of ski trails that cross a wide variety of terrain – including forests and mountains – and include ski jumps, skating rinks, and floodlighting for night-time adventures through the snow.

Visitors will likely fly into Oslo airport, before catching a train, bus, or taxi to get to their local accommodation. Car rentals are also available for travelers who hope to explore more of the region around Lake Mjosa.
