There is more to Oppdal than mountains and skiing. People have lived here since the Ice Age, which has left its mark. If you spend a few days in Oppdal, you can experience our long traditions when it comes to food and culture. Welcome!

The locals of Oppdal (known as Oppdalinger) are proud cultural bearers of our long traditions. We want our guests to immerse themselves in our history as mountain people through the communication of art and culture by visiting a gallery, the museum or going on guided tours.
