Mjøsa is Norway's largest lake, on the border between Hedmark, Oppland and Akershus counties. Mjøsa is located in an old valley, possibly in a geological weakness zone. The valley has been dug out of the ice through several ice ages to a fjord with a threshold at Minnesund. The main addition is Gudbrandsdalslågen; the drainage of Vorma connects Mjøsa with Glomma.
Mjøsa is rich in fish, especially vendace, common whitefish, trout, perch and pike, and others. The fishing after vendace have long traditions, but the interest in this fishery is less than before. However, the fishing after Mjøsa's big trout is growing. The trout sprouts in several of Mjøsa's side rivers and grows in Mjøsa.
All pictures are taken from the west of the lake in a park near Kapp, lovely place with beach and bathing possibilities.
Stay tuned for more travel posts from my trip around the country.
