Acording to the Internet Movie Database, they filmed at Fagerli fjelllet in Fefor for TESB, do you know if that's true, or did they only film in Finse?

I only knew about Finse. I've read "Once Upon a Galaxy: A Journal of the Making of The Empire Strikes Back" but can't remember any mention of Fefor in it. The book is buried somewhere in my garage though, so I can't double check that right now.

I'm also having a hard time just finding any information at all about Fefor. The only reference I found was for a hotel in Vinstra, Norway.

Do you know if there is a translation for what "Fagerli fjelllet" means?

I posted a question on the Norwegian Wikipedia, and this is what they said:

Hi. I'm sorry that I don't speak Norsk. I'm trying to write an article about Finse at Wookieepedia. Acording to IMDb they also filmed at Fefor. I can't find any information about this exept imdb. Is there any starwars fan here that could confirm this, and tell me where Fefor is? Thanks --Steinninn 17:58, 15 februar 2007 (CET)

I can't confirm, but I can tell you where: Fefor lies near Vinstra. The filming should have taken place at Fagerlifjellet, a bit south of Fefor. Fefor is an old ski resort, see Home page of hotel, in english. I'm sure you can write them and ask! --Ekko 20:50, 15 februar 2007 (CET)

Didn't they have a helicopter filming backgrounds for the snowspeeders. Anyone know more about WHERE that flew ? I expect Finse only.

I've seen photos of the helicopter and the hangar.

Assuming you travel by train you want the Oslo-Lillhammer line. Stay on past Lillehammer until you reach Vinstra (Nord-Fron).
From there it's a 10km south-west taxi ride to Fefor, and from Fefor it a 7km overland walk.
My GPS map shows a turnoff track/small road on the Vinstra-Fefor road. Turn off just after Vollsetra and it will take you to either Graslia or Fagerlisaetrin. Both are just a few km from Fagerlifjellet.

From Google Earth it looks a beautiful unspoilt place, take plenty of photos !
