Hire of the Visitor Centre

The visitor centre in Odnes is available for hire, and with its fantastic outdoor area it can add the special touch to your event.

In summer 2015 the Dokka Delta National Wetland Centre opened a nature house within the Dokka Delta nature reserve in Odnes (Gamlevegen 84 2879 Odnes). We hold exhibitions here as well as nature interpretation for all ages but with the main focus on school groups. Inside the building you will find a large uninsulated room with seating - dominated by large windows offering a fantastic view over the Dokka Delta and the Randsfjorden. There are also toilets and office facilities and a kitchen within the building. Around the building there is an outdoor activity area that DNV utilises. The building can be hired by both the public and private sector.

  

The centre is perfect for events, meetings, courses and gatherings and can be hired for these purposes. There is tableware, a basic kitchen, chairs, a projector, canvases and four tables available. We cannot remove our exhibitions on display, and these must not be disturbed.

 

The visitor centre also has canoes to hire with the relevant equipment.

We can offer guided tours around the area to experience the bird life. These must be arranged in advance. The visitor centre can supply binoculars and telescopes if people wish to loan these.

  

Hire prices:

Public sector per day for the office section
500,-

Public sector per day for the exhibition section
1000,-
