Gjovik is situated on the west shore of Lake Mjosa, Norway's largest lake and although it gives you the impression of a small provincial town with beautiful white wooden houses, it has a lively atmosphere.

This is the result not only of the variety of shops that can be found here, but also of numerous restaurants tempting both locals and tourists.

Among Gjovik's attractions are the Gjovik Olympic Cavern Hall (the world's largest underground auditorium), Eiktunet (the cultural historic museum), the Gjovik Glassverk (where the traditional craft performed by the most skillful glass blowers can be experienced) and Skibladner (the world's oldest paddle steamer still in operation).
