Svarstad Church was built in 1657 and is located here.
Svarstad ski center was a popular attraction for both children and adults and operated 8 ski slopes. But Svarstad Skisenter didn't do very well and became bankrupt and therefore had to close at the start of winter, 2015. Holemyra is a fairly sizable forested area located in the midst of Svarstad, and this is also a popular picnic and hiking area with residents.
