On the water

There are many idyllic lakes and rivers in fjell-Telemark and places where you can hire a boat or a canoe:

Gaustablikk Hotel: canoes and pedal boats.

Tinn Austbygd: rowing boats and canoes on lake Tinnsjø  

Arabu Hyttegrend: rowing boats on lake Møsvatn


Do you love fishing? In more than over 800 lakes in the immediate surrounding of Rjukan you can catch both trout and char.

An unique kind of fish is the Gaute, which can be caught on 100 – 200m depth in lake Tinnsjø. You can find this fish in this lake only, and in the Baikal lake in the Oeral.

One of the other beautiful spots is at Selstali Seter.
you can buy a fish permit at Rjukan Turistoffice.
