Evjua Strandpark is situated right by lake Mjøsa in the middle of beautiful Totenvika beside road "Fv 33" between Minnesund and Gjøvik. In addition to Viken II restaurant and the marina, Evjua Strandpark offers affordable accommodation at its campsite, and the pitches extend all the way to the shore of lake Mjøsa. The venerable holiday house "Captain's Residence" can comfortably accomodate 9 persons, and you can also enjoy activities such as beach volleyball, water trampolining, fishing, bathing, a natural climbing park and scenic paths along the lake, through the area’s rich cultural landscape and traditional farms, and all the way up to the scenic views from the steep forest.
Fishing in lake Mjøsa is truely a hidden gem. The locals have harvested from this great lake for hundreds of years, but sport fishing is still not very common despite the abundance of very large pike and trout. Grayling and whitefish are among the other species that are commonly caught here. There's a fully equipped motor boat for hire on the premises.
There's also a great number of sizable perch in the lake, and these are easy to catch using casting equipment from the marina.
All in all this makes Mjøsa a perfect family destination both for those in love with the wonderful sport of fishing, but also for those who are just looking for a quiet Norwegian retreat close to the nature.
The Captain’s Residence offers comfortable accommodation for up to 9 people, and it certainly sets for the ultimate holiday experience by the lake. This traditional residence is equipped with all the mod cons, and its spacious accommodation, which includes both a dining room and lounge, lets you enjoy a wonderful holiday with your loved ones!
If you're travelling with a caravan, mobile home or tent, then the campsite will offer great locations close to the lake. You will also have access to a modern service facility with kitchen, washing machines, showers and toilets.
The restaurant Viken II is built in the style of a traditional boat from Mjøsa, and it is located along the marina with spectacular views of Helgøya, Hamar and Stange. The “galley” serves delicious Norwegian summer dishes made with fresh produce from the local farms of Toten. Fully licensed bar.
