Essential info

About Liasanden

In the pine forest of Leirdalen in Lom municipality, you will find the unique rest area, Liasanden. Nature, trees, and terrain have been key elements in determining the design of the site down to the smallest detail. 

Getting there

Liasanden is located right next to the river Leira in the pine forest of Leirdalen, about 9 km from Bøverdalen centre.

Facts

The architects in the company Jensen and Skodvin saw that a completely different and idyllic rest area could be placed in this pine grove. Here, the forest and the terrain have determined the shape of the rest area, down to most minute detail. The gravel road is shaped like a “stream” that widens and narrows in harmony with the terrain. Concrete furniture was placed in the pine grove, and along with the service facilities and an information stand in wood and concrete, the rest area has become a complete and functional location for travellers.

Amenities

The toilet facilities are unfortunately closed from middle of September to the beginning of May.
