There is a lot to do in the immediate vicinity of Biristrand. For example, a visit to Lillehammer is highly recommended and you could also visit the other Olympic cities Gjovik and Hamar. At only 25km. distance you will find Hunderfossen Familypark, one of the largest amusement parks in Norway and very popular for families with children. The area is also very popular in winter. For example, in Lillehammer you will find the Lysgardsbakken, the ski jump that was used during the Olympic Games. But also Hafjell, a family-friendly ski resort just outside Lillehammer is recommended.
The city of Lillehammer has of course become known for the 1994 Winter Olympics, but even before that time, Lillehammer was a popular holiday destination in both summer and winter. That of course also has to do with the large selection of museums and cultural centers such as the Lillehammer Art Museum, the Norwegian Olympic Museum and Maihaugen, one of the largest open-air museums in Norway.
