Korpreiret is a gill or canyon more than a kilometer long - a wild and dramatic formation that the river Øksna has dug out of the mountain through millions of years. The stretch includes two waterfalls and several pools where one can bathe and swim.

Korpreiret is a kilometer-long gill or canyon in the river Øksna - a wild and unusual formation in the Hedmark region with two waterfalls, and dramatic landscapes. At the upper waterfall, the mountain sides are about 40 meters high with vertical falls into the river. The views are quite good on both sides. Below the waterfalls there are large, deep ponds where one can swim with a very comfortable bathing temperature on hot days.

With low water flow, it is recommended to make the trip down in the river, among potholes, round holes that ice and rock over millennia have dug in the rock, but the paths down to the river are very steep in these areas, so not recommended for bringing children. There are many such pools also in the upper, still-flowing part of the river which can be more easily accessed with children.
