PICTURES from NESSET

This area is very mountainous, surrounded by peaks up to 1964 meters high, which caused the architecture in this valley to be different than that of other villages. Eikesdal village is located at the south end of the Eikesdalsvatnet lake at the mouth of the Aura river.

 Goksøyra  
Goksøyra, Goksoeyra, Eresfjord Eresfjord village is located along the Eira River between the Eresfjorden and the Eikesdalsvatnet lake. The mountain Skjorta lies just to the east of the village.

The Myklebostad village lies about 17 kilometres to the northwest through the Vistdal valley and the Boggestranda village lies about 10 kilometres to the north. Agriculture, salmon fishing, and tourism are the main form of income in the area. Eresfjord also has its own hatchery (built in 1956) that provides salmon and sea trout to the Eira River and Eikesdalsvatnet.
