About Holsfjorden

This roundtrip can be started several places around the lake. This description starts in Djupedalen.
From here, there is a nice trail going east on the southern side of the lake. The view over the lake is beautiful and there are several nice picnic areas along the way. By Seimsbrua bridge there is a nice, sandy beach for warm summer days. Here, you can either take the shortcut over the bridge or continue to Hagafoss. From Hagafoss you follow the footpath by the road back to the bridge, and from there you will find a trail with several nice fishing spots. From Hol you follow the footpath back to Djupedalen.

Fishing license can be bought at Best gas station in Djupedalen, Kiwi Hagafoss, by SMS (only Norwegian numbers) or at www.inatur.no.
