Birdwatching in Gausdalsfjellet and Kittilbu

The region is often referred to as “Huldreheimen” and is a real wilderness terrain with wet moor landscape and old coniferous and birch forest. This creates favourable breeding conditions for water birds.

Dominating the forest, you will find Redwings, Willow Warblers, and Bramblings. The place Kittilbu is a very good starting point when visiting Gausdalsfjellet—either you are seeking out into the wilderness or just want to take a family trip.
