Lonely Planet review

Hamar’s stand-out landmark is this sports arena , a graceful structure with the lines of an upturned Viking ship. The building, which hosted the speed skating during the Winter Olympics, holds 20,000 spectators, encompasses 9600 sq metres of ice and is 94.6m long. Both in scale and aesthetics, it’s an impressive place. From late July to mid-August, the ice is open to the public for ice-skating (Nkr80).
