About Padletur på Helin

Helin is a lake located in the Slidre and Vang kommuner. Helin drains to Tisleia and the lake was regulated in connection with the development of Åbjøra power plants.

Helin is a long stretch of water. You can paddle from both north and south, but the whole sea along is a long trip. Often is it okay to turn around halfway to the island Heletubba.

Places to launch the kayak:

From South: From Strøstølane towards Strøsosen. From here, one must carry a short distance of about 100 meters before the kayak can be launched into the water.

From the North: A small road goes down to the water just by Grovstolen. The distance down to the water is fairly short.
