Ovi Raishiin

Ovi Raishiin is a great place to visit all year round, by yourself or together in a group. Here you can enjoy nature, the view into the valley and have a god time! Bring your own firewood and food that can be grilled to enjoy a nice lunch outside around the fire.

From the viewpoint you can look straight into Reisa National Park, approx. 8 km in a south-easterly direction. Reisadalen gets narrower towards this point, and you can see that the valley becomes wilder with steep edges.

The outdoor area is accessible to the public all year round and here you can find:

  • Tables, benches, and campfire sites for free use all year round
  • Always open and tidy toilets
  • Places to sit with a roof over your head
  • Viewpoint
  • Small exhibitions, posters, maps, brochures, and information available outdoors
  • Possibility to stay overnight in cosy cabins. Read more about Nordkalottstua here

About the national park

Reisa National Park covers a natural landscape that is virtually untouched. The Reisa river, one of Norway’s best salmon rivers, flows through Reisa. The river valley is characterized by several tributaries that flow into the main river as waterfalls, such as Mollisfossen with a fall of 269 m.
