Rendalen’s realm has many secrets
Rendalen naturligvis wants to share these secrets with you: the towering Sølen mountains, Rendal reindeer, the hunters that lived here. The forests, the wolf and the bear. The axe that carved out Jutulhogget. The inland fishing village Fiskevollen. We give you time and space to take part in our stories.

Once upon a time the Rendal troll – Rendalsjutulen – wanted to dig out a waterway from Glomma to get more water for its mills. Twice he struck with his ax, but the gully was crooked and not as long and deep as he had intended. When he was about to strike for the third time, the Glåmdalsjutul was awakened by the noise. In anger he threw his ax towards the Rendalsjutul, which struck him straight in the skull and he fell dead. Thus Jutulhogget between Rendalen and Alvdal was created.
Fiskevollen by the lake Sølensjøen, the largest and oldest fishing village in Norway, can be found at the foot of the Sølen massif. The Sølensjøen kings they were called, the most powerful men of old Rendal ancestry, and they guarded the lake’s important resources. Here they built boathouses and fishing huts which now huddle low and sun bleached down by the lake. When the people left Fiskevollen in the fall, the underground people took over the wealth and danced in celebration. Rendalen naturligvis will gladly take you to Sølensjøen to fish or just experience the historic atmosphere of the area.
