We offer canoes at two different locations in Hemsedal. One in Vanneviken direction Lykkja and Skogshorn, the other is located in Grøndalen in Lake Fagerset.
The location in Grøndalen is at the small cosy mountain lake Lake Fagerset. The lake itself is nice but you can also try to canoe up the river. A big advantage is that in this lake you are allowed to fish. A fishing license may be bought at the location where you find the canoes. To get to Lake Fagerset it is a toll road, but the toll is included in the rental.
The canoes in Vanneviken are located by the water Vannen on the way to Lykkja/Ulsåkstølen. Here you have a gorgeous mountain lake that has several small islands and other places one can go ashore. There is also often a nice temperatur to swim in at the water next to Vannen, Grytevatnet. Here it is a small canal that you can paddle to get from Vannen to Grytevatnet.
